In Virtual PC 6.1, going to the Windows Update site thanks me for my interest (great) but does not offer any options to update. I know there are updates there, as my Win XP box has downloaded them. Any way of working around?

Any way of working around? Windows Update scans your computer--in this case the emulated PC--to see which updates are required. You didn't tell us which OS you have on VPC, but I am certain your Win XP and your VPC disk image are not duplicates. You can be assured that if you had duplicated the software installed on your Win XP machine, Windows Update would have offered updates for it.

Strangely, seems to have resolved overnight! It is original software, but thanks.
