Amazon.com Product Description

Version 4.0 of Virtual PC offers a host of improvements and new features. It is up to twice as fast as previous versions, and has improved memory allocation that allows you to allocate up to 512 MB of RAM to the operating system inside Virtual PC without quitting the application. Also, your PC disk image--a virtual hard disk on your Mac hard drive--grows and expands as needed (up to 127 GB), and uses only the space it actually requires, rather than a preset amount. There is an improved user interface, with scrollable windows and support for three-button mice and scroll mice. The improved help includes integrated Virtual Disk Assistant, Setup Assistant, and an interactive help system. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Works great, but isn't the newest
Virtual PC 5 with DOS works great on both MacOS 9 and MacOS 10.x. It is ideal for people who already have a Windows license and just want Virtual PC without needing to pay for the bundled OS that comes with the other versions of Virutal PC 5. I've installed and used Windows XP, Windows 2000, Linux, and FreeBSD with Virtual PC 5 without any problems.

If you do install another OS using Virtual PC with DOS, I'd suggest that you also install the Connectix Windows video drivers (available with the Virtual PC 5.0.4 updater) for display resolutions beyond 800x600. It's still possible to use Windows without these drivers, but you may have limited display resolutions in the emulated environment. It's a little tricky to install; after updating to version 5.0.4, you'll see a little icon in the bottom of the emulated environment to the right of the printer icon. Click on it and then select "Install Additions".

Virtual PC 6 is out and claims to be slightly faster than 5. It might be worth getting 6 instead of 5, given that they cost about the same.

4-0 out of 5 stars Applications run smoothly.
I bought Virtual PC 5 with Dos becasue I own several versions of Windows from 95 to XP, why pay the extra money? However loading your own OS was not as easy as hoped. However, once I figured it out (thanks to the help menus), I decide on windows 98SE, xp aparrently runs slower due to the OS being larger and 95 doesn't support USB. It runs MS office nicely and even Frontpage 2000. Don't try any games, this is not for that. If you need to run PC programs on your mac this is a great deal for a hundred bucks. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Once you get over the creepy experience of seeing a Windows desktop on the face of your lovely Mac (and hearing the Windows start-up chimes reverberating from your speakers), you might start to appreciate the benefits that a program like Virtual PC 4.0 has to offer. For those Mac users who need to occasionally access Windows 98, Virtual PC 4.0 supplies just the solution without making you invest in a new machine.

Virtual PC doesn't profess to offer lightning-fast speeds. Remember, you're running a second operating system, so don't expect even the mightiest G4 to keep up at its usual pace. However, we did note improvements in speed in most applications over the 3.0 version. Enough of a difference, in fact, to consider an upgrade if you're one of the many who've been frustrated by the sluggishness in the past. However, as before, Virtual PC is still not a good solution for playing PC games. Additionally, we tried watching two QuickTime movies over the Internet on both our Mac and in Virtual PC. While on our T1 line the Mac version was flawlessly gorgeous and buffered instantly while watching, trying to watch the QuickTime movie in Virtual PC was stuttered and clunky. And even when watching QuickTime movies that had been fully buffered first, the player still resorted to a slide show instead of smooth, streaming video.

One major change in this latest version is in memory allocation. Whereas in the 3.0 version you had to allocate memory to the Virtual PC application itself, in this version you allocate memory to each virtual "machine," which can be expanded and changed even while you're in the midst of using that machine. Additionally, drive images are now only as large as they need to be. That means that even if you create a drive image of 8 GB for your virtual machine, but the application is only using 2 GB, then the image will only be 2 GB--a great disk space saving feature.

The two most notable benefits of Virtual PC are the ability for Windows to use your Mac's existing Internet connection (there's no need to go through any further setup), and the outstanding USB support in this new version (you can access USB printers, scanners, and other peripherals easily). However, you should have OS 9.0.1 or later in order to take advantage of its enhanced USB support.

Another neat addition in this version is the ability to add even more operating systems to Virtual PC. That means that if you have a copy of, say, SuSE Linux lying around, you can install that on another drive image, and access it from Virtual PC. The only caveats are that you must supply the OS and that you're still limited by the amount of RAM you have. But how cool is that?

Though it might make you feel a little dirty having to visit the dark side every so often, the benefits of being able to switch back and forth between your Mac and Windows are quite substantial, and warrant a look at Virtual PC 4.0 with Windows 98. --Ara Jane Olufson ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A must buy!!
Excellent product, never crashes and delivers what it promises. Don't expect to go on a speedy downhill rollercoaster with your new "pc desktop", but if you only need it to run a few not so complex applications, VirtualPC is the way to go. After all, it's windows on a mac...

1-0 out of 5 stars Great Product - Awful Tech Support
If you are thinking of buying this product to utilise your Mac as a PC as well, then you are on the right track. However, if like me you have a few peripherals, some development tools, etc. there will come a time when you will need tech support. That's when you hit a brick wall.

You have a better chance of emailing your gold fish and getting a response than from someone at Connectix. I mean that most sincerely. Weeks. Absolutely weeks go by before someone will wake up to the fact that you have written in and respond to you. Then they will ask you for more information. Then you will respond and then another month or two will go by.

Think hard before you make this purchase if this is the kind of company you want to deal with. Because you are going to be facing many, many lonely weeks waiting for their response, if it ever comes.

5-0 out of 5 stars How to Get Several Laptops for the Price of One
I've been using Connectix' Virtual PC for quite some time now. In my experience it has been easy to install and it has been easy to use. The new version 4 adds some much needed flexibility that allows one to more easily run multiple operating systems as well as to tune each OS installation to more closely match one's needs. I think the most compelling thing about Virtual PC is that it does a far better job of emulating a PC on a Mac than any application I've ever seen for emulating a Mac on a PC. This may not sound like a big deal, but when one is travelling and/or consulting in a mixed-mode environment it is really a LOT easier to have only one laptop upon which one may easily switch from system to system without rebooting and without reconfiguring. For the cost of a Powerbook or an iBook and Virtual PC, one has essentially a fleet of PC's with the ability to run and support Macintosh, DOS, Windows in all its many flavors, Linux, and yes, OS/2. Note that this also allows a person to log in to any aspect of a mixed mode networking environment. Very handy and exceptionally cost effective! ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Playing PC games on your Mac with Virtual PC
I recently purchased Virtual PC 5 with Windows 98 for my 600 MHz iMac. My only purpose for buying it was to play some of the awesome games designed for Windows. As I searched for info about Virtual PC's capability of playing these games, I found nothing that discouraged me from buying it. After I got it home I discovered my answer in the "Read Me" file, so here it is straight from the documentation...

"Virtual PC is not recommended as a gaming solution for the Mac. Virtual PC does not provide the resources many PC games require to run, such as hardware accelerated 3D video."

If you're considering it for this reason, don't waste your money like I did.

3-0 out of 5 stars Nice product, but if you're using OS X wait for Virtual PC 6
Connectix Virtual PC is a good product at base, but release 5 for OS X is a "new" and weak version. I've used prior versions of VPC successfully under Mac OS 9 to run some of my old PC software and to access proprietary corporate web sites that are written for Windows only. The software installed very easily, it automatically picked up my Mac internet connection (via Airport and cable modem), and it ran the Windows software really well. A bonus is that when Windows crashes (as it always does, eventually), my Mac doesn't have to be rebooted -- I just relaunch Windows within VPC. That's better than running Windows on my old Dell machine.

However, the version 5.0 release on OS X is basically a new product, and it's EXTREMELY slow. Wait for 6.0 and see if the speed issue has been addressed. Connectix has announced version 6.0, but as of this date (Dec 20, 2002), it hasn't appeared on Amazon.

4-0 out of 5 stars Rating me or a software
Mr. Joachim Klehe,
acting +30 years in hard- and software business, doesn't mean anything, when you need customer support after installing a programm which runs in tousands of macs.
I do not feel competent to judge a software rigidly, because I have no time and not sufficient practice with this programm, but if the Mac Authority MACWORLD gives it ***** it can't be so bad. But registering software, I can even give you some hints. - Hans J├╝rgen Ruppert

5-0 out of 5 stars An amazing feat!
I'm typing this review on a Mac G4 running Windows '98 through Virtual PC V 5.

It gets better, though. I'm also running wireless networking on the Virtual PC via the Mac's AirPort network and Cable Modem. I can share my Internet connection, copy and paste between systems, and the Virtual PC sees my CD drive, external FireWire drive and USB peripherals--including my printer, which required no setup at all--with absolutely no problems whatsoever.

In addition, the Virtual PC effortlessly imported several thousand e-mails that I archived on my old Windows system.

This is an amazing feat of engineering. I now have Mac and Windows operating sytems on the same computer, and for those times when I need access to a PC, this will work quite well, thank you very much.

A previous reviewer mentioned a laundry list of problems, none of which I encountered. I can't speak to his experience, but mine was fantastic. I can't recommend this program highly enough.

1-0 out of 5 stars Not Ready Yet!
I recently migrated to a fully loaded PowerBook w/maximum memory and the biggest disk available. The few Windows applications I needed to run could (I thought) be handled by the Virtual PC for Mac software. I've been in the technology business for 30+ years and know my way around both hardware and software. While the installation went well, and even after applying the required software update v5.01 from the Connectix web site, the software basically doesn't perform as advertised. Problems encountered: 1) The registration process failed so I was unable to establish a support account at the Connectix web site (no support account, can't alert Connectix of problems!); 2) The Windows Start menu never appeared (again, no support account, can't get help!); 3) the Virtual PC window arbitrarily changed size during the course of operation leaving the application useless; 4) My Apple USB mouse cursor disappeared intermittently during the short time I had a virtual pc running; and finally 5) the notorious Windows Blue Screen of Death actually appeared in my virtual pc window.

Thank goodness I was running OS X and my entire machine didn't get hosed. I will pursue a refund...for this "not ready for prime time" software application. A very disappointing experience. The software gets 1-star for intention and zero-stars for execution. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars reliable softwindows
softwindows 98 is just like windows 98 but only softwindows works for your average macintosh therefor providing a happy medium! although it is a tad slow sometimes, it is, on the whole, a fairly reliable system. At the moment there are software kits to help you get up and running if your version of softwindows isn't working (usually occurs on the imac due to a bug that is going around at the moment). Another useful thing about softwindows is it can run any windows program on a macintosh. now i might be repeating myself a bit but i think that's really cool (for all ages). ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A good product
Contrary to the other review appearing on this page, Virtual PC is a wonderful product which DOES work quite well. Of course it doesn't work too well on emulating games which require lots of processor power, but for everything else I've tried, it works perfectly. If you need to run anything besides a 3D, graphically intensive game, then this is a very good solution.

1-0 out of 5 stars Good Idea, but doesn't work
This program is a good idea, but its not something you want to buy. It takes some of your mac's hard drive and memory and uses it as a Windows ME computer. This would allow you to run windows applications on your Mac. However, it requires a lot of memory and doesn't work with games. Already discouraged? Well, it conflicts with almost every program on your computer. Even programs like Microsoft Word froze when doing just word processing. And when you call the company, they tell you that it doesn't cause any of these problems. Well, it must have, because the computer wasn't having these problems before we installed it. We have a G4 Cube, so it isn't that we have an old computer. This isn't a good purchase. Spend a little more and get a simple Windows computer. ... Read more
