Reovering a Lost Virtual PC Console

October 8, 2008

I use Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 on a daily basis, often spending my entire day working in a virtual machine. Its a great app, especially considering the price – Free!

There is one bug which I’ve seen 2-3 times now, and its really annoying! The console dissapears!

This is something to do with using an extended desktop – When you switch back to single display, the console is still set to display on the extended screen, or at some crazy screen position outside of your current screen resolution.

Ben Armstrong, program manager on the core virtualization team at Microsoft has identified 3 potential fixes for this situation on his Blog all of which are quite straight forward.
