While this application requires at least Windows 7, it fully supports virtual machines with Windows XP and any newer OS. All that you need to set up your own array of custom virtual machines is to have enough system resources, which include capable CPU and several gigabytes of RAM memory.
While many virtualization apps feature complicated and non-intuitive interfaces and toolsets, Windows Virtual PC can easily guide you through the step-by-step procedure for creating a new virtual machine. More seasoned users can always pick a faster route, and set up their machines using an existing VMC file.
During the creation of virtual machines, users are given the opportunity to name them, pick the desired operating system version, set up the amount of RAM memory they can allocate (automatic or manual), and specify the size of the virtual storage partition. Advanced settings include the capability to share CD/DVD/Floppy drives, assign serial ports, network adapters, sound devices, and hardware-assisted virtualization services for each available VM.
Be aware that the latest versions of Windows Virtual PC (distributed after the shutdown of support for “Virtual PC 2007” app) lack some of the popular features, most notably drag-and-drop sharing or direct sharing of folders between host and guest.
Windows Virtual PC is 100% FREE for all users running Windows 7 and newer versions of Windows OS.
