Virtual PC not working in Windows 2007

Asked By 200 points N/A Posted on -

I'm about to install Virtual Pc machine in Windows 2007. When I installed it the warning message came out;

Virtual PC 2007 SP1 Setup

Virtual PC 2007 SP1 Setup has stopped working

Windows is checking for a solution to the problem…

Every time I repeat the installation the setup will stopped working! I do the restart option but still the installation remains failed.

Is Virtual Pc working in Windows 7 operating system? On our school we use Windows XP when using the Virtual Pc machine. Is it possible with Windows 7? Why did the set up stops working? Do you have any idea how the installation couldn't be able to continue?

What would be my next move in order the installation will successfully completed.

Help anyone thanks

Virtual PC not working in Windows 2007


Hi there,

First of all, I presume you mean Windows 7 by saying windows 2007. Because, there is no version of windows named Windows 2007.

The version of virtual pc you are trying to install is Microsoft Virtual Machine 2007 SP1. It is only supported by Windows Vista. You cannot use it with Windows 7 as it is not supported in Windows 7. For Windows 7 you have to use Windows Virtual PC, which is a newer version released by Microsoft for Windows 7 only. It can be downloaded free of charge from Microsoft website if you use genuine version of Windows 7.
