Wrong virtual on my mind. Either way...I was hoping to avoid that for now, but it may have to happen.


Well, it wasn't easy FINDING VPC, it is prominent on the download center but until I went there--lots of obsoleted MS docs that make it look like older versions are current and it stops at XP hosts. Hmmm.

Along the way I stumbled on a gem, the "Virtual Server Migration Kit" which apparently expedites copying an entire physical machine--OS apps and all--into a VPC or VS installation. Designed so you can "snatch" a whole real computer and run an emulation of it.

And that may be a real gem! Allowing me to take along the old computer, with all the old apps, and run it intact on the new one when/if/as needed.

Why MS doesn't mention this in migration and upgrade options, or why anyone else doesn't mention it....Steve, you're priceless! (And if this blows up, of course that's all your fault.<G>)
