    And you loading 32bit of WCPR
    I think you will have errors

    XP Home @ Home - lots of stuff at work


    I too tried virtual box on a dell and got this same error. I am running an e2160 in a desktop with xp home as the host. The e2160 does not support the VM extensions that a zdnet article that was based on running off of virtual box said it needed. I will try vmware player now.

    I had to upgrade my vmware player (I was getting another error) but the install appears to now be working as I overwrite a copy I made of a Ubuntu VM.

    Well the attempted install on top of an 8G ubuntu file didn't work. Expanding the hard disk and trying again but apparantly the expansion is rather time consuming in vmware.
