    I'm just about to try this on a Vista host. Will it work ok?

  2. Works fine here. Of course, when I installed it, it was still called
    Longhorn Beta 3.

  3. Just to update this, after my previous response, I downloaded the latest
    beta from Microsoft's Beta Central and installed it to a VPC 2007 machine.
    No problem. The only difficulty is that it doesn't recognize the emulated
    sound card. From what I read here, that's pretty much as expected: VPC
    emulates a SB16 and Vista-type OSes don't support that (ISA bus not

    Have just tried it but don't seem to be able to get networking (I have
    installed additions). I fiddled around somewhat to no avail. Any pointers?

  5. Networking seems to have a random element to it in my VPCs. I like to keep
    the VPC Settings for Networking set to "Shared Networking (NAT)." Sometimes
    that works, sometimes it doesn't. In this case, I just set it to my real
    adapter and everything worked fine. Make sure that VPC didn't default to
    something like "Local Only" or Not Connected."

    Well I tried the basics and then some... loopback adaptors bridged to my
    wireless connection, and still didn't work.

    However I noticed I could install wireless support in WS2008 so I did that
    and was able to get it using my wireless card alongside Vista ;-)

    Only thing I'd like to sort now is the sound...
