    Virtual PC on Vista Home

    Hi,

    I have Vista Home as OS running on my system.
    I want to install Microsoft Virtual PC on it.
    Will it be supported?
    I have Basic & Premium Versions of Windows Vista Home.

    Sorry Manoj,

    The Home Basic and Home Premium versions of Vista are not supported by Virtual PC.

    Download details: Virtual PC 2007
