Virtual PC 2007 & 2009 memory assignments

By Healer ·
Be it Virtual PC 2007 or 2009, do we count only the memory required by the host system and the only guest system that would be run at one time regardless of how many more virtual operating systems have been installed with one host system?

We can have multiple virtual guest operating system installed with one host system, can't we? However we can't start more than one guest system at one time, can we?

It's rather important because you'll run into another brick wall if you are opting for Virtual PC as an alternative. It won't work with Windows 7.

Suddenly I remembered my daughter's laptop that wouldn't boot not long ago. Like what my the other post has said, I am trying to set up the virtualization or Windows XP Mode on her laptop which has Windows 7 installed at present.

I am also in the middle of setting up Virtual PC 2007 on one of my desktop. That's why I have this post.

Setting up Virtual PC both 2007 & 2009

by Healer In reply to A bit of reading material

I am trying to do both at the same time on two separate computers if possible, trying to catch up really.

The article you quoted was good. I sort of knew of that but I wanted to be sure when they said running a number of guest OSes simultaneously they did literally mean it and they did not mean number of guest OSes installed. Sometimes things are said one way but are actually meant otherwise.

Could you please confirm your understanding and experience?
