Hmm...

acording to this Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 Product Specifications page, Virtual PC 2007 does not run on Windows XP Home.

You may be out of luck, 03humphrec.

Sorry.


I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!
