I have Virtual PC 7 with windows xp in it. I bought it just to use programming tools for my university exercises in windows XP. Problem 1)The problem is, that whenever I try to build an application using Microsoft's Visual C++ (just a simple "hello world" application written in ANSI C), my compiler builds the application and then I cannot open it! The application opens and quits instantly! This happens even in pre-compiled demonstration applications which I received when I downloaded other compilers such as Visual Studio. What is happening? Could it be that VPC cannot run compiled apps of C language? Problem 2)I cannot set up my XP (With service pack 2 installed) to connect to the internet using my Mac's ADSL connection. Microsoft's instructions are totally crap and all I know is that my Virtual XP cannot connect to the internet, and I cannot perform certain registrations that require an active internet connection. Sorry for my long talk, but anyone has any solutions to these two problems?
