run multiple operating systems on one PC Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 allows multiple operating systems to run concurrently on a single machine. It enables developers to test and debug their software on a number of different platforms, all on one PC. Other uses include training, tech support, legacy application support or any other use that requires access to multiple operating systems. You can easily switch between operating systems without having to log off or reboot. A wizard will guide you through the creation of a virtual system and you will need a bootable CD or disk image to install the operating system to the virtual machine. Only for Windows XP and Vista.

A problem killer!!! 5 stars by MyNameIsSylar Apr 17, 2009 (Read all my 2 reviews)
I have an Artec AT3E scanner I love, but it doesn`t work in Windows XP. After I moved from WinME, I thought it would collect dust in a corner, until I knew about MSVPC. I only had to create a Win98 machine, enable LPT1 and run a copy of a Photo program. As a result, the scanner works as good as in the good old times. There were some minor problems with Win98, but I successfully created a link to the host machine, where I can save my files. I also have experimental Windows 3.11 and XP machines, and one just to run Linux live-cds. It works very fine in Vista, since I made an XP machine for my brother`s laptop to run his company`s VPN program. Problem solved. Except for the lack of USB support, the program is very good, and you can run lots of things, as long as you have the proper CPU and memory requirements. You can all safely give this baby a try. : ) show Review details
A must have 5 stars by gimpguy Sep 03, 2008 (Read all my 1159 reviews)
Been using this for a while and run WinME, XPpro and Vista Business all virtually and works like a charm. I used to and still do sometimes, test rogue apps, spyware, viruses, etc... and what better way to do it than through a virtual system? It's worked flawlessly for me so no complaints. Although as with most virtual systems, you better have the resources to back it up. I only run 2 gig ddr2, no vid card, all onboard but can run all virtuals at once with little trouble. My son has 512 and cannot run Vista virtually but does run XP fairly well. Still, I suggest more resources to get the most out of it. It's free, excellent, and a must have. show Review details
Totally rad 5 stars by HZetzer Dec 05, 2006 (Read all my 23 reviews)
Microsoft did not develop this product but instead bought the company that developed this outstanding tool. If you need to test operating systems or simply need to run multiple operating systems but lack the hardware than Virtual PC 2004 is your answer. Very stable and works like a dream. show Review details
