This application is similar with VirtualBox and allows you to install different operating systems on your PC or laptop. It has always been possible in times past to install multiple operating systems on the same computer. The hard drive will have to be partitioned, and all the different operating systems will be installed on their own dedicated files system on the hard drive. After that, there is a need to install a boot manager that allows the user to select an operating system to boot -one at a time.
This software enables the system administrator to run multiple operating systems concurrently. Although this program only works on Windows 7 and later versions of the Windows operating system, it can install other versions of Windows as a virtual machine so that it runs concurrently on the Host operating system.
The program installed a virtual machine on the host operating system and dedicates a portion of the system resources such as hard drive space, and memory for use by the guest operating system. After installation, the guest operating system uses all the input and output devices attached to the host PC. This way you can have two different operating system running on your computer at the same time.
This program is a great way to test features of an operating system without having to dedicate an entire computer or mess up your hard drive through various partitions.
Windows Virtual PC is licensed as freeware for PC or laptop with Windows 32 bit and 64 bit operating system. It is in virtualization category and is available to all software users as a free download.
