Hmmm....might have to give this a go
Microsoft download for those interested.
Virtual PC 2004 SP1
Hmm. Have the relieved the licensing requirement to have a separate license on each VM?
I'm new to this type software Peter but if Ms is giving it away for free would licensing problems arise
Wow ! and to think I paid for the dang thing a couple of years back...
Well originally the site was very specific. You had to have a license for every operating system you had on a virtual machine. That meant 2 copies of XP, so two licenses, etc. Didn't matter which software. I know developers get some license that allows unlimited use.
I guess they're losing territory to vmware ....
BTW - Virtual PC will only run on Win2K Pro or XP Pro (not home edition).
Already downloaded, installed, etc. Very nice platform for testing software and like the ability to save or discard changes for the VM.
Always used VMware
VirtualPC - performance is poor compared to VM player - might be good to create VMs - that can then be imported to Vmware
