Virtual PC Connectivity
When properly configured, a Virtual PC virtual machine (VM) behaves and functions similar to a real PC running current and legacy operating systems including DOS, Windows 95, 98, and 2000. Microsoft Virtual PC runs on Windows 7, XP, and Vista.
A Virtual PC BSP is provided as part of the Platform Builder for Windows Embedded Compact 7. With this BSP, you can create a Compact 7 OS run-time image that is able to run on a Virtual PC for Windows 7 and Virtual PC 2007 for Windows XP and Vista.
The Virtual PC BSP provides a convenient and cost-efficient means for a developer to establish a test target for Compact 7, using VM, without the associated hardware cost.
