Another hint on vm performance, cpu settings, multi-cpu vs multi-core vs multi-cpu-core 😉
Posts Tagged ‘Virtual PC’
While I was looking for infos about vm settings (cpu multi core, multi cpu, …) I found this helpfull document “Performance Best Practices for VMware vSphere™ 5.0“.
Well it wasn’t very appropriate to my need, but it helped empowering my knowledge 🙂 because best practices are valid in variuos scenarios. 😉
Here are details: Windows 7 + Virtual PC, guest os Windows XP.
SharpDevelop 4.0 Beta1 release available (here) … so Let’s have a look!
But … the message popup is around the corner: The Windows Installer does not permit installation from a Remote Desktop Connection .
I couldn’t install SharpDevelop in virtual machine. Why???
Because of I run setup from shared drive.
solution: copy setup file in vm drive.
ps: same solution for XP Mode
full instruction here:
Ack! The Windows Installer does not permit installation from a Remote Desktop Connection

On a secondary pc, I noticed ESC and TAB keys stop working randomly.
It happens only with a specific vm.
In the beginning it seemed random to me, but it was not.
It happens after restoring a vm from saved state.
I found some hint here Losing Tab and Esc Key Functionality in Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 (last comment by RayeR)
but I haven’t found root cause. 😦
Host configuration: Windows 7 build 7100, Virtual PC 2007 (184.108.40.206).
Guest configuration: Windows XP SP3 (win32k.sys v5.1.2600.5676, 15/09/2008 ), VM Addition installed.
Everything works fine after moving the vm on Windows 7 (final release), Virtual PC (with Integration Services). 😉
