I am trying to run Windows XP on my computer via Microsoft Virtual PC 2007, but it keeps on taking me here.

I am taking the .iso file from my desktop.

I used "capture ISO image".

I tried it with the windows 7, and it shows that it loads the files, but then it encounters this error: http://www.mediafire.com/imageview.php?quickkey=865ck1ter46n6xf&thumb=4

>>>Info: Attempting to load a 64-bit application, however this CPU is not
compatible with 64-bit mode.
<<<

It appears you are trying to run a 64 bit version of XP on Virtual PC, which is not supported.

>>>Does Windows Virtual PC support 64-bit Windows XP as a guest operating system?

No. Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP Mode was designed to help small business with application compatibility from Windows XP to Windows 7. The majority of business applications currently run on 32-bit versions of Windows XP.<<<

VirtualBox or VMWare do support running 64 bit XP if I'm not mistaken.

Edit to add: Confirmed, VMWare Player does support Win XP Pro (x64). :)
