My operating system is Windows Vista Home Premium. When I was installing Virtual PC 2007 sp1, a window popped up telling me "this version of Windows is not supported by VPC 2007". Moreover, in the official website, it is said "Virtual PC 2007 runs on: Windows XP Professional, Windows XP Tablet PC, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista Business, Windows Vista Enterprise, and Windows Vista Ultimate. " However, after I searched the Internet, found that you can run Virtual PC 2007 on Windows Vista Home Premium, but you cannot get official technical support.
After preparing everything, I started to play with the new toy. It's fun. The only issue I had was an error that appeared when I dragged files from the guest to the host machine.
Virtual PC has encountered an error on the host while copying files; An error in
Virtual PC has occurred.
Lucky me, thought I gave up yesterday, this is solved today. In the settings of a virtual machine, there is a branch called networking. If you choose Shared networking (NAT) as the adapter, the error aforementioned will occur. Simply choosing your real physical adapter will solve this issue.
