Hi y'all,

Finally got around to setting up my blog.

For those who don't know me - I'm Ben Armstrong, a Program Manager on the virtual machine team at Microsoft.

This blog will be used to talk about my favorite program of all time - Virtual PC!

Umm...

Yeah - I'll talk about Virtual Server sometimes too - cause I am supposed to care about it as well :-)

Cheers,
Ben

  • Really an interesting idea... I love Virtual PC and all virtualization software in general. I hope you can write some tips about VPC optimization and integrations of other non Microsoft OS.
  • Will VPC SP2 address the problem of "Internal virtual machine error"? I have some old DOS games which worked on VPC 5.2 but not in VPC 2004 with or without SP1.
  • Cool! It's good to see the VPC team blogging. It's been one of my favoriate PC products for a while now...
  • William - sure - I do have a bunch of tips about old DOS games that I will post here in the future.

    Stefano - same things goes for non-Microsoft OS's. Apart from Gaming - I am an alternate OS fanataic.

    Cheers,
    Ben
  • I hope that I am not intruding. I already spend hours serching the Net, and posted few times on forums realted to VPC but did not get even one answer.

    I installed Win98se as a guest on WinXP as the VPC Host (this is on regular OC Not Mac).

    The installation works OK as long as I am not trying to install the Addins.

    Once the Addins are installed (including the new sp1) Win98 halts upon boot stating fshare problem. There is No fsahre refernce in the the system.ini.

    Any idea.

    Jack.
  • Hi Jack,

    Do you have anything else installed that might be causing this problem? Also - it would probably be best to post to the microsoft.public.virtualpc newsgroup at msnews.microsoft.com.

  • Ben: Do you have anything else installed that might be causing this problem?

    Nothing unusual is installed; it is a plain Vanilla Win98se.


    Ben: It would probably be best to post to the microsoft.public.virtualpc newsgroup at msnews.microsoft.com.

    I posted few weeks ago on microsoft.public.virtualpc, as well as few other places. No one even attempted to give me an answer.

    I did not take any further actions in the last two weeks knowing that VPC SP1 is coming out, and thus hoped that it will solve the problem. Alas It did Not.

    I guess it is a very unusual occurrence.

    Thanks.

    Jack
