Getting Virtual Server R2 SP1 to work in Vista

in Microsoft, Virtual, Vista

I’m never one to reinvent the wheel when Jim Collins of the Microsoft Core Team has done a great job explaining how to get Virtual Server to run on Vista.


“If you’re trying to run Virtual Server on Vista, you need to do two things.

STEP 1: Enable IIS and the correct settings. To do this, go to Control Panel and under the Programs category click on Windows Features to Turn Windows features on and off. Here you will see a long list of features that can be enabled/disabled in Vista. For this discussion were specifically interested in enabling features under Internet Information Services (IIS). I’ve typed out what needs to be enabled below and included a screenshot.

STEP 2: Run IE using elevated privileges. To do this, right click on IE and select Run as Administrator.

You must do both.”
