Fix virtual pc 2007 bridged networking in Windows 7

August 6, 2010

If you are unable to assign a bridged networking adapter to your virtual pc 2007 virtual machine in windows 7… here’s the fix I did:

There should be an option in virtual pc settings to clear all messages.  I cleared all messages and restarted virtual pc 2007.  When it started i got a message saying virtual pc 2007 was having trouble binding to the network adapter and it could be fixed by binding to all... then it asked for a file.  The file it wanted was located here: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Virtual PC\Utility\VMNetSrv\x64

After that everything worked.

Other stuff i did that may or may not be related:
-uninstalled vmware workstation
-unchecked ipv6 on ethernet adapte
-turned off hardware virtualization in xml file
