    Because of some problems with my machine, I reinstalled my pc (xp and all
    stuff) and, instead of install Virtual PC 2007 RC, I installed the at time
    new Virtual PC 2007, but I couldn't accede to my virtual machines. I had to
    install my pc again (same problems) and do an installation of at maxim one
    hardware or software a day. I want now to install Virtual PC 2007 but I'm
    afraid that I can’t accede to my virtual machines. One last information, by
    the time I was forced to install the system again my virtual machines were
    saved. I had read posts saying that virtual machines made with early versions
    of VPC (I suspect - but not sure - that at leat one of my machines were made
    with VPC 2004) run in VPC 2007. So, what can be the issue?

    What do you mean by "accede"?????

    If you still have access to the old virtual machines VHD (disk files)
    then it is very easy to use them. Just create a new virtual machine
    after installing VPC2007 and when asked for the disk just browse for
    an existing disk and point to that VHD file and you are done.
    This machine will start and run exactly like it did in the old PC.

    I mean 'to access'. Sorry. I'm portuguese. I asked Babylon to a synonym to
    the portuguese word 'aceder' (not french, despite the fact that both are
    latin languages and in some aspects very similar). Babylon give me 'accede'
    as a option. That option, as I see now, turns out to be erroneous. Anyway,
    thanks to your comments I have now my virtual machines back, but I must first
    to delete my old *.vmc files in order to create a new one and use next the
    old *vhd.

    Thanks and best regards both
