Anyone tried VIRTUAL PC ??

Postby Larry53 » Tue Mar 20, 2007 12:34 pm

This Microsoft software allow you to install some OS like DOS or win 9x on XP. :idea:
If it works correctly you should use all your games for win95/98 or dos games.
I've downloaded the Virtual PC 2007 which has become a freeware.
(but i've no Win95 CD for the moment)

If someone had already tried Microsoft Virtual PC 2004 or 2007, tell me about it.

I used Virtual PC for Mac before Microsoft bought it. It worked really good. I prefer DosBox, though. It might be good for playing old Windows 95 and 98 games. I don't know how Microsoft has improved upon it or if they've messed anything up. I think now it's designed to be used for virtual desktops and not really for running legacy software, but I could be wrong.

VPC is actually designed for people who like to try out very buggy software without running the risk of making their pc explode :D . However I did manage to get Phantasmaroria 2 to run on it with limited success (you have to disable DirectX from the config files).

I've resolved the high memory problem with ms-dos 6.22.
And i've installed Win98 too.

Test with urban runner and Larry 6 CD OK 8)
The midi sound is not very good but the games seems to work perfectly :!:

The games work, but it doesn't solve any speed issues. I suppose NewRisingSun's patches would work, though.

A short while ago I installed DOS 6.22 and Win 3.1 on my VPC. Lightning fast, but also a lot of errors for the sound driver. Wouldn't work right.
