    virtual pc, and was unsuccessful. The state bar informs me
    that the live resolution switching is turned off. may i
    know how could i turn it on? thx.

  2. Live resolution switching is disabled if VPC detects that a program running
    in the guest tries to programmatically change the guest's resolution. This
    was done because programs that change the resolution usually don't expect to
    have it changed again behind their back (and will crash if the resolution is
    changed). IIRC, you can clear this message by opening up the Display control
    panel in the guest and choosing a different resolution. VPC will take that
    as a clue that it's once again safe to enable live resolution switching.

    I don't think this warning is related to your inability to run some programs
    in Win2K. What problems did you encounter? Did you resolve them?
