"It looks like the Folders have gotten fouled up. I read one post that Folder Reset might fix it (but didn't for me) and that you could run the VPC Wizard (which worked for me) thusly:

vpcwizard.exe typed in the Start Search, or Start Run box, should give you access to the Create Virtual Machine Wizard."

"I had the VPC options on the toolbar, but they were after the usual options ""Organize,"" ""Include in Library,"" ""Share With,"" and ""Burn."" When I clicked on the "">>"" button, I saw ""Create Virtual Machine.""

It totally threw me though because I've been using this since the 90s and I'm used to just having the main window open up. This is way less intuitive."

"I wondered the same thing myself once, and noticed that there was a special toolbar when I browsed that folder - do you have the same thing? One of the buttons should allow you to create a new virtual machine.

Edit: There is a picture of the toolbar on this post from MSDN:
