    I ran the free Virtual PC 2004 from MS and ran a few linuix distor's under/through it. I would like to do that on in vista and was wondering if 04 would work or if there was a better version I should get so I can run these distros for school work/special projects.

    I haven't tried it yet but Virtual PC 04 shouldn't have any issues running a virtual Vista. It's not limited in any way by the OS, just the hardware you're running. So as long as the computer you're using to create the virtual machine is capable of running Vista you shouldn't have any issues. Give it a shot, can't hurt to try.

    No, Vista is on the laptop. I then need a Virtual machine so I can run linuix distors though it. I was curious if VPC 04 would work on Vista. Trying to avoid conflicts.

    vp2004 does work on vista. but you can use 200mb ram less than on a XP pc (cause vista uses more memory)



    vp2007 is in a beta stage and will be released this year.
