    Hi, I'm running Windows 98 SE in Microsoft Virtual PC 2004 (the 45 day
    trial). I've been successfully playing an old Win95 game on this setup
    recently, however... I just installed the Virtual Machine Additions and now
    I get the following message when I try to start the game:

    -----
    Virtual PC has disabled live resolution switching.

    The guest operating system has changed the resolution. Some programs require
    specific resolutions to run properly. In order to maintain compatibility,
    Virtual PC has disabled live resizing of the virtual machine window until the
    virtual machine restarts.

    No, you can't, not while you're running the game. You posted the
    reason above as why VPC does this.

    So even though it works perfectly without Virtual Machine Additions
    installed, there is no way to get it to work with the additions installed?

  4. I have created several special-purpose virtual machines that exist only to
    run a particular game. You can set one up without the additions that does
    nothing else but the game.
