Microsoft have replaced Virtual PC 2007 with “Windows Virtual PC”, but theoretically it is only supported with Windows 7 Professional and above. However, if you head over to the Windows Virtual PC website, and say that you have Windows 7 Professional, it enables the downloads of Windows XP Mode and Windows Virtual PC. You only need to download the Virtual PC part, which arrives as the rather cryptically named Windows6.1-KB958559-x86.msu. Simply double-click to install.
Feb 14, 2011 Download Windows Virtual PC (64-bit) for Windows to run more than one operating system at the same time on one computer.
Once installed you may, like me, run into the issue that hardware assisted virtualization is not enabled in your BIOS. I have a Dell laptop, and it was a matter of hitting F12 on bootup and searching around for the option in the BIOS settings. More info on enabling HAV.
The final step was to load up one of the old Virtual PC 2007 vmc files I had lying around. This went smoothly, although my virtualized XP did attempt and fail to install new device drivers when it booted up. Windows Virtual PC adds a Virtual Machines folder under your user account from which you can set up a new virtual machine if you require. I haven’t done this yet, but I might give it a go later and attempt to get Ubuntu running (something which was notoriously difficult under VPC 2007 so hopefully the process is a bit smoother now).

Hello Dan, Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community. With the description, I understand that you are facing difficulties in downloading the Virtual PC for Windows 7 form the given Microsoft link.
Anyway, it’s nice that Microsoft have made this tool available for free, which is very useful for software testing, and even better that its usable on Win 7 Home Premium, without having to upgrade to Professional.
