Does Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 R2 work under Windows 7?

I have a laptop that running Windows XP and it's running a virtual machine in the Virtual Server 2005 R2. Everything works great.

Virtual Server 2005 is not supported on Windows 7 and is intentionally blocked by the Program Compatibility checking system in Windows 7. Decent instructions on how to disable the Compatibility stuff and get around the problem is documented here.

It works with a workaround, but not supported."
