  • VMWare on Windows 7

    Does anyone know of issues with VMWare running on Windows 7 with XPMode?

    I know there are issues with VMWare and Virtual PC on the same system but don't know how it reacts with XPMode.

          Yes, I understand that VMWare Workstation runs on Windows 7 but does it play nice when XPMode is installed as well? I have read articles where Virtual PC has clashed with VMWare.

          Just don't want to blow away my working XP setup with all my VPC VMs before knowing if it will all work with Win7 and XPMode. Not real keen on finding out it doesn't work after reconfiguring the laptop again. Click image for larger version

            But where is the fun in not doing it lol.

            I'll stick XP mode on later with workstation and see how they play together.

                  I'm running VMWare and xp mode side by side with no problems, network connections run fine and no data loss!
