    I've installed Virual PC on my machine, at the first start
    I got the message: "Virtual PC could not open the Virtual
    Machine Network Services driver". As an solution is given:
    start in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Virtual
    PC\Utility\Install.bat or reinstall the product. Both do
    not give a solution for the problem. Does anybody know
    this problem?

  2. Hi Jan,

    Go to your NIC's properties and make sure that the Virtual Machine Network
    Driver (or something to that effect) is checked
