Windows 7 Professional network problem with Virtual XP
Posted on 2010-01-13
I wonder if anyone can shed some light on a small but annoying problem we are experiencing at work.
We are running Windows 7 Professional but some of our programmes are too old to run on the new OS. S
o we have installed the MS Virtual PC and are running a virtual Win XP Pro system on the VM.
Our legacy software is running fine however we are not able to get a network connection between the VM and the host OS. We have set the network card on the VM to the physical adapter on the host like the Help files show but there is no connection made.
We have manually set the IP's of both the host and the VM to make sure they are on the same IP range.
If anyone has any experience on setting up a network between the host and the VM we would be very grateful if you could share some of the knowledge.
