    I thought you could only install Virtualpc2007 on Vista Business or Ultimate
    version, I don't think you can use it on Vista Basic.

    Just ignore the error. Other people have used VPC 2007 on Home and Premium
    without issue. All the error is telling you is that Microsoft doesn't
    support VM on these operating systems, not that it will not work.

    Seconding John's sage advice - ignore the error. This is a warning that the
    use of Virtual PC is unsupported by Microsoft, not that it won't work. It
    works fine for me.

    Not only does Microsoft not support VMs for Home Basic, it is a
    violation of your EULA to use them on Home Basic.

    Please cite the prohibition. I cannot find it in the eula. Thanks.

    ~~~~~
    No such prohibition in the EULA with my Vista Home Premium. All it says is
    that, "You may not use the software installed on the licensed device within
    a virtual (or otherwise emulated) hardware system."

    So if you run VPC or VMware, and you want to run a VM of Vista Home Premium,
    you need to buy another license, and its "licensed device" will be the
    virtual machine.

    Meanwhile Bill Gates tells China, steal Vista, please. Makes me feel
    good that if you're going to steal something, you pick Windows.

    Note to the utterly clueless:

    Right now there are more middle class Chinese then there are citizens
    in the United States. That's right, about 300 million middle class
    Chinese can afford to BUY Vista, yet less than 200 have a licensed
    copy. Still millions have a pirated copy of Vista and with Microsoft's
    blessing. Yet idiots babble about you violating the EULA.

    Priceless!

    Indeed. Priceless stupidity. Well, that's what the babbling fanboys in
    this newsgroup are known for. Being stupid and babbling.
