Installs a virtual PC so that you can test out different operating systems, Window setting and configurations without losing anything from your actual computer.

Microsoft Virtual PC 6.0 (2007) is light simple software that allows you to execute a completely virtual computer inside your computer!
Microsoft Virtual PC 6.0 has many different uses and configurations to choose from. The Operating systems that it supports in the Guest computer are: Windows 98, Windows NT Workstation, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, OS/2, Windows NT Server, Windows 2000 Server, Windows 2003 Server.
Microsoft Virtual PC creates, depending on the Guest Operating system, a predefined set of options that can be edited, like Virtual Hard Disk Size and RAM Memory.
Microsoft Virtual PC is a great tool for developers or system administrators to try applications or test migrations before actually performing them. The application would also come in handy for anyone who would like to test any other operating system or a clean install.
A Virtual PC can have 3 Virtual Hard Disks configured, a CD/DVD Drive or Floppy (using Host Drive or an ISO Image), manual configuration of communication ports (COM1, COM2 and LPT1), 4 network adapters (used to share connection files with Host), can emulate sound and do much more!
Without the need of formatting, or getting an additional computer, with this application you can test drive an operating system, software, or a configuration and see if it fits your needs!

This was definitely too good to be true. I kinda had my hopes up. Hopefully they'll release a free version soon (which is kinda the reason why we downloaded it in the first place).

Does anyone else agree with me and sick and tired of false advertisment? They say oh let me scan and fix your pc for free, free my butt, then they find 250 errors and only want to fix 15 of them!just because you have a pc and internet doesnt rich and have a debit card! Some people are poor! I am just sick of lies, i should know there is nothing free in this world but freedom of speech, thank god for that> Crazy
