Windows XP Mode + VPC 2007 = :-(

Posted by essjae on January 22, 2010

Update: I spoke with MS and they said that XP Mode is unsupported and won’t activate with VPC2007, although VMWare Player/Workstation will activate.

So no love for XPMode and VPC 2007

While this should work technically and legitimately for Win7P,E,U according the the info on the MS site, it doesn’t.  The issue is that you’re asked to activate but the MS supplied key for XP Mode won’t auto activate.  I haven’t called the MS activation line, but other have and have not had any positive results…yet.
