How To Install Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 SP1 on Windows 7



How to Use Microsoft Virtual PC

Steps

  1. Download Microsoft Virtual PC off Microsoft's website.
  2. Install the program.Note: Youmustbe running Windows XP or higher. However, the program still may possibly run on older systems.
  3. Once you start the program, it should ask you to make a virtual machine.If not, click the "New..." button.
  4. Click the Create A Virtual Machine Button and click next.
  5. Type a name for the machine (for example, the operating system you are going to install).Click next.
  6. Select the operating system you are going to install.(This sets up the recommended specs for your virtual machine) If the operating system you are going to install is not there, click "Other".
  7. Depending on the operating system you are using, you may want to adjust the amount of RAM it will use.Remember: Don't choose more RAM than yourrealcomputer has. The main operating system is still running too. For example, if you have 1 GB (1024 MB) of real RAM, you may want the virtual RAM to be 256 MB. And also, some older operating systems don't support RAM over 512 MB. So it's just a waste to have more than what that operating system supports.
  8. Click "A New Virtual Hard Disk" and click next.Now you get to choose where to put the Virtual Hard Disk. Usually the default is fine. Also set the size of your hard drive in megabytes (1024 Megabytes = 1 Gigabyte).
  9. Finish the wizard.You should see something new in the Virtual PC Console box. It should have your virtual PC.
  10. Click on it and click "Start".You should see a bunch of lines of text, similar to the lines you see when you first start your computer.
  11. Insert the install disk for your operating system.
  12. Follow the directions on the install disk for your operating system.(If you get bored while it's installing, and you can't move the mouse out of the windows, hold the right Alt key and drag it out of the operating system's box. Or do the right Alt key and press Enter . The install will keep proceeding as normal.)
  13. If done properly, the install should go smoothly.If it asks you to restart the computer, hold the right Alt key and press R. When the virtual system asks to restart, just restart the virtual system, not the real computer. The system should boot just as you were using it as a real computer.
  14. Congratulations.You set up your first virtual system. What you do next is completely up to you.

    First connect the printer via USB to the computer, then install the printer software by following the steps. Then go to "Devices" and select "Printers" to check if your printer is showing there. Try to print a test page and you should be good to go.
    Thanks!

  • Explore! You really can't mess up the main operating system. The host and the guest systems are totally separate from each other.
  • The 'emulation' Virtual PC uses does not emulate most processor technologies (certain operating systems like Linux may not run)
  • If you are installing Windows 95, the system will not always start properly. If this is the case, keep restarting the virtual PC until it starts. (If you do not do anything with the computer while the computer is in the boot screen, it increases your success rate.)
  • If the system seems sluggish and you are using a laptop, plug the laptop in to power. Many laptops reduce their processor speed to maximize battery life.
  • Virtual PC is really great if you are seeing if a program works on an old version of Windows or just for nostalgic reason like to see what an old version of Windows was like.
  • Be sure to install the Virtual Machine Additions CD-ROM after you install your OS. This enables you to move files easily between the guest & the host. It is accessible from File > Install or Update Virtual Machine Additions... (NOTE: Virtual Machine Additions only work on the following operating systems: Windows 98, Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista.
