    Unable to register this virtual machine config file

    I m having an issue with virtual machine. This started after my XP computer
    that runs virtual machine shut down without warning and I got the blue
    screen of death. The computer is back up now, but Virtual PC will not let me
    run the virtual machine I had created. Keeps giving me the error "Virtual PC
    was unable to register this virtual machine configuration file".

    Do I need to re-install Virtual PC because of corruption. Am I s.o.l. with
    the machine I already created?

    Thanks

    Just delete the VMC file associated with the virtual machine in
    question.
    Then in VPC2007 create a new virtual machine and when the wizard comes
    to the virtual hard disk, just point it to the VHD file from the
    virtual machine you had running.

    Now just start the guest and you'll be fine.
    No need at all to re-install VPC2007 or such..
