Hyper-V Program Manager
A little while ago I stumbled upon the game Trilby: The Art of Theft. This is a fun little game that I have enjoyed spending a couple of days playing (I have now completed it). The basic concept of the game is to guide Trilby through a series of heists where you have to stealthily avoid guards, cameras and lasers as you attempt to steal the treasures as quickly as possible. This game does run under Vista - but there are a couple of problems:
So how to solve these problems? Simple - run the game under Virtual PC:
How has virtual PC 2007 been behaving with retrogrames compared to 2004? Has the hardware emulation been changed at all (thus causing the same sort of "emulation" problems VMWare has with Sound/Video in Dos)? I'm rather happy they've started releasing Virtual PC for free, it makes Retrogaming much easier.
Can you provide a compiled version of your sample here (http://blogs.msdn.com/virtual_pc_guy/archive/2008/01/10/mounting-vhds-from-managed-code.aspx). Since I'm not a developer, I'm finding it hard to compile using Express edition.
Ben, you have so many postings on these cool games spread across all of the months. Is it possible for you to have a linked area that refers back to the blog you had in the past?
"When running in windowed mode glass gets disabled."
Have you debugged why?
