    I have Windows XP Pro running on my host, and I have installed Windows
    Server 2003 on my virtual machine.
    I installed the Microsoft loopback adapter on the host, and configured it
    with the classic IP: (subnet mask:
    But when I try to configure my virtual machine in VPC 2004, I can't find the
    "network adapter on the physical computer" option in the network cards list.
    The only things I can see are: Not connected, NAT, and Local.
    I'm not sure of the translation because I'm French :p
    How do I make the Microsoft loopback adapter appear in VPC 2004?
    Oh and by the way, the "loopback" connection is active, and the "Virtual
    Machine Network Services" is checked in the Properties dialog box.
    Last thing: I am connecting to the Internet via a poor Modem (not a LAN or
    things like that).
    Please help, I don't know why it's not working!!!

  2. Does Virtual PC display any error messages when you start it?

    Virtual PC displays nothing at all.
    Yesterday, I tried to install another virtual machine AFTER having installed
    the loopback adapter, but nothing changed, I still have only 3 options in the
    network adapters combo boxes of my virtual machines settings.

    Cheers & thank you for your help
