    I've got Windows 7 Pro, and needed to install the Virtual PC option to get access to XP. All went well and everything is installed. However, when I switch to the XP session, I cannot connect to the net and I get a "The page cannot be displayed" error. None of the other software for accessing the internet, i.e. OE, will connect either. What can I do?

    What do you use to connect to the internet?

    I've never used the Win7 VirtualPC program, however with VMWare there are many options that you can configure to enable certain hardware to run with the virtual machine instead of your main computer, such as USB ports, etc.

    Look around in the options and see if you can find the problem there.

    You may have to enable ICS on host. Not sure where that is in Windows 7.
