Lets see if I can clear up some issues...
mandozza: Here's what I would do. I believe it's what stumpii was suggesting.
Completely wipe out your current instalation. Make sure you uninstall Virtual PC from your computer, as well as removing all of my wrapper's files. Then install Virtual PC and run it. If for some reason, virtual pc does not load correctly, then we have problems...
Here's the two possibilites:
1. As stumpii said, you may have the wrong version for your computer, or some element of the host install may be corrupted.
2. Some part of my code is malfunctioning.
If it's the first, you just have to find a way to get the base install of Virtual PC running before doing anything else. However, if it's door #2... I need to know as much as possible about what's happening. If this is the case, email me with the OS/Service pack you're using, and any events that happen before or after you launch the portable version and I'll see what I can do.
Long time ago...
Now I'm back.
Here what I did on 2 different computers, both use Win XP Pro SP2
1.) I installed Virtual PC 2007.
2.) I create a Virtual Machine.
3.) I start the Virtual Machine with VPC2007
4.) Shut down the virtual machine and close the console of VPC2007
5.) I start VPC2007 Portable - on both computer the automatic installation said it could not find an installation of VPC2007, but it copied all necessary files. If I tried to start VPC2007Portable on both computers I got the same message: The Virtual Machine Monitor driver required by Virtual PC is missing.
6.) I use the manual installation.
7.) I tried to start VPC2007Portable but I got the same message.
So I got the same message on two different computers - any Idea?
