    Hi,

    I'm currently trying to install virtual PC 7 on my iMac. The initial part of the install runs ok, but once I click on complete, I get an application quit unexpectedly message.

    If I reboot the mac, and try and manually run the VPC7 app to complete the install I just keep getting the message.

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    I don't really want to install it but have just bought some remap software for my car and it needs to run on a PC.

    Them I'm 99% sure you can't install Virtual PC: it's for PowerPC Macs. Use Bootcamp, Parallels, VMWare Fusion or VirtualBox to install the copy of Windows you were going to use with Virtual PC.
