Thanks for the quick replies. I use virtual machines for more most of my
work. I think I will stay on Vista with VPC 2007 SP1 since that is
supported, unless others post there is no risk. My understanding is VPC 2007
SP1 is not supported on Windows 7. My PC is only a few months old, it is a
shame I got the wrong CPU! Hopefully others will benefit from this post.
