"Virtual PC doesn't do 64 bit guests. VPC Release Notes

You can use VMWare Player , vmware workstation, Virtualbox, or either of the newer MS Virtualisation apps (APP-V, HyperV).

Vmware did have an ISO image (vt.iso) that you could mount in a Virtual machine, and it'd tell you if your virtualisation platform, and your host, supported 64bit and had the Intel virtualisation technology installed, but I can't find a link for it.

Hope that helps.

"Adam,

Microsoft does have an official Windows 7 Support Forum. It is supported by product specialists as well as engineers and support teams. You may want to also check the threads available there for additional assistance and feedback.
