    I just got my copy of VPC 7 a few days ago, and I noticed a problem. When I installed it, and converted my XP image to work on the new app, now it has trouble switching from app to app in the mac enviorment. FOr example, I leave ichat open when I am working in Windows, and when I get a message, I click on the window, and when I click back to VPC 7, it gives me the beachball and sits for a few minutes. In VPC 6, this didn't happen. VPC 7 feels rough around the edges, and draging files from the PC to mac envoirment or vice versa also results in this. Was it a bad convert with my XP image. I maybe should try installing the XP from the VPC disk, but this one already had my info on it. ANyone else had this problem?

    From one of the little boxes on the bottom of the window you have an option of installing Virtual PC add ons, you must do this to be able to use it like a normal window.
