    I'm on my phone now, so I can't link you, but there is a tutorial on this site with detailed information. You need to have Windows 8 Professional 64-bit in order to activate Hyper-V. You can also try VirtualBox, VMware Player, or VMware Workstation.

    Thanks Kebero, unfortunately my processor does not have SLAT (apparently), I therefore cannot install the Hyper-V platform.

    In that case, try VirtualBox or VMware Player, both of which are free, and better solutions than Virtual PC.
