    Not at the moment. I recommend you try Virtualbox, since it does have support for Windows 8: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads

    You don't need any additional software in Win8, since it includes Hyper-V.

    The OP wants to run Windows 8 in a VM not run something else in a VM on Windows 8.

    The OP asked if Virtual PC could run IN Windows 8. My response was that you don't need them in Windows 8 because of Client Hyper-V.

    You can use Virtual PC 6 in win8. I am Using VPC 6 in win 8 from last 15 days but you have to use with Winxp sp3 Compatibility.

    Hi Kebero,
    How do you access Hyper-V in Windows 8 Pro, I've not been able to find any mention of it.
