    Hi

    Can anybody give me a quick "heads up" on what I can do and when I might use Windows Virtual PC? At the moment my "Lab Machine" is running XP Pro SP2.

    Thanks

    1. To run legacy program that do not run on Windows 7.
    2. To run different versions of software without issues.
    3. The ability to run different versions of Microsoft operating systems

    Well there's 3 things right there :)

    "Test-bed" Install and play with apps & functionality without losing your 'real' PC.

    If it goes wrong, just recreate Virt PC!
