Specs: Windows XP SP3, AMD 2.1 Ghz/2GB RAM
Hi Guys,

I have a question about Microsoft VPC 2007 SP1

I have a computer running XP 1.7 Ghz., Ram: 512MB
My question is can I install VPC on this computer and install XP again as a guest OS only to work through VPC, yes thats right, I don't want to work on the host but want to work on guest OS through VPC.

So is that possible given the configuration above?

Also Does the Microsoft VPC SP1 provides USB support? I know Windows VPC does but my question is about MVPC.

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Hi Tubesandwire,

Thanks for the quick reply and MS link, was helpful for sure.
but there is no mention if it supports usb or not.
usb support in the sense if I plug in a Pen drive it shud detect.

Can you provide me some info on that, thanks

I would have to say NO.

1st of all, you need more RAM. A portion is used by the host OS, the rest by the guest OS. 512MB isn't enough.

2nd, if you want USB support, you need Windows Virtual PC, not MS Virtual PC 2007. And your CPU, motherboard/BIOS needs to support hardware virtualization:

It's possible another VPC program will do what you want, but you still need more RAM.

Thanks Jam for your your answer.
I guess you are right I will need more need more RAM.

However if it doesn't bother you can you please tell me if I create a virtual machine and the operate it with VMware player, will it work on the same config.

Since its just a player, it should not take much resources as VPC would take.

I would like to know your opinion, thanks.
