Anyone interested in this? Paragon.

Perhaps worth mentioning, that its a 3 day offer, and you will or may need a Facebook account?.

I have downloaded and installed the software. In Windows XP, I've created a "virtual machine", the result of which is to create two files - a .vmx file of 1kB and a .vmdk file of about 17GB, which is obviously the XP partition. I cannot see any way of actually doing anything with these files in order to run XP in the virtual machine. ???

The "Help" link to Paragon's website simply brings up a 404 not found error.

I'm with you mgmcc very poor support so I will not recommend this software unless you know what you are doing.

It seems that it isn't stand-alone software, but just creates the files to run in other programs such as Microsoft Virtual PC which, in Windows 7, requires the Professional or Ultimate versions.

If something sounds too good to be true, it usually is!
