Win 7 64-bit Virtual Xp Mode Issue With 3 Monitors


Windows 7 64bit, virtual xp mode. 3 monitors. Cannot drag virtual app to left monitor but can drag to right monitor. We have an app running in virtual xp mode on windows 7 64bit. We have 3 monitors. All the native applications can be dragged from the center (main) monitor to the left and the right monitors. But any virtual apps can only be dragged to the right monitor.

If you click on the far right of the title bar and drag the virtual app to the left monitor, the window disappears where it should be displayed on the left monitor and the window stops once the cursor hits the edge of the center monitor but the cursor keeps going on to the left monitor while the virtual app stops where the cursor was on its title bar. It doesn't matter what virtual app it is. I loaded office on the same virtual machine and all the office apps have the same problem.

I tried moving the monitors around, as long as the monitors are on the right as far as the display settings are concerned, i can drag the virtual apps to it. But any monitor to the left cannot be dragged to. I tried this on other computers, if the monitor is on the left, it cannot be dragged to.

But if the monitor is moved to the right of the main monitor in the display settings window, then it can be dragged to. This only effects virtual apps. Lso, if i just run the virtual machine, i can drag it to the left monitor.

Can I Run 32-bit Xp In Xp Mode Virtual Host Under 64-bit Win 7?

Can i run 32-bit xp in the xp mode virtual host under 64 bit windows 7? I have a legacy program (for an alpha smart neo) that communicates via usb, and it is not compatible with 64 bit platforms.

I'm not sure if the 32 bit limitation is in a driver, or in the main manager program provided with the neo. On a related topic, can i load 32 bit drivers in the virtual xp under windows 7, assuming i can run 32 bit xp under 64 bit windows 7?

Virtual Xp Mode

I'm testing running the virtual xp mode machine off it's own nic instead of natting. First i installed via nat and all works well but when downloading on either machine, one slows. So i decided to install a separate nic, told the virtual machine that was it's connection, and now it's running off of it's own ip, etc. The problem now is that it seems to have slowed the opening of programs on the virtual machine. Are there other settings i'm not configuring to make the virtual machine respond like it's suppose to?

Virtual Xp Mode Is Unreliable

I have a dos-based accounting program. It started complaining that it was unable to read a file. I looked to see if the file existed. It did. I replaced the file with a back-up copy. This did not improve the situation. I then shut down virtual mode. The window went black, but remained on the screen. Finally i shut down windows 7. When i tried the procedure again the same thing occurred. After this i removed both the virtual session and its hidden folder. Programmer for visual c+ 6. 0, and microsoft office including access.

Unable To Print From Virtual Xp Mode

I have twice attempted to set up my hp laserjet p3005 printer in virtual windows xp mode and failed. I would like to be able to print from my dos software. Unfortunately windows 7 professional 64 refuses to run my dos software as well as some of my old windows software and i am therefore forced to use virtual windows xp mode. (Some of my old windows software refuses to run in either mode i.e. Flight simulator 2004)

I am wondering if i am assigning the wrong port to my printer. I read that i need to assign it to a 'ts' port. Some of these ports indicate that they are 'uninitialized. ' i tried one of these without success. The last port i tried to use read: ts004 (martinvd: prn6)

As a test i open a command prompt window in virtual windows xp mode and type: dir >prn. The only noticeable reaction is the appearance of another command prompt. I have not yet attempted to use port lpt1. I have no problem printing from windows 7.

For those of you who wonder why i still use dos the answer is that writing a program with turbo pascal for dos is significantly faster than writing the same program in virtual c+ 6. 0, which refuses to install under windows 7! Programmer for visual c+ 6. 0, and microsoft office including access

Bsod After Installing Xp Mode And Virtual Pc

I am getting the bsod after rebooting my machine after installing xp mode and windows virtual pc. After installing xp mode and then wvpc, the computer reboots and finishes the update. At that point i can bring up xp mode and use it. It is the next time i restart the computer i get the bsod. I have narrowed down the problem to the windows virtual pc update (kb958559) that is causing the problem, but no idea why. I can consistently replicate the problem and system restore is the only way to get the machine to work again. I was on windows 7 home premium and upgraded to professional using the upgrade anywhere. My chip will handle hardware virtualization and it is turned on in my bios (can't manually do it, but it is turned on by default and the windows tool confirmed it). Dell studio xps 9000. Any help would be appreciated. Getting a little frustrated at this point.

Cannot Find Printer Port In Xp Mode / Virtual Pc

Have an older calcomp plotter. Used it with win xp. Drivers are not compatible with windows 7 (64). Upgraded to win 7 professional, downloaded xp mode and virtual pc. All went well. Installed my plotter in xp mode, but can't seem to find the usb printer port plotter is connected to. Know plotter works because as i was trying different ports the test printed to my hp printer that is set up on a home network. Have read different instructions, but they are over my head. Have hp touchsmart w/ three usb ports on back. Used one of these ports to attach printer. I think i have to do some set up of usb devices in xp mode, but don't fully understand what i should do. Anyone using xp mode and windows virtual pc with windows 7 who can explain simply would be appreciated greatly.

Program Crash When Running Filemaker Pro V4 In Xp Virtual Mode

Program crash when running filemaker pro v4 in windows xp virtual mode under the 64-bit version of windows 7 ultimate. With filemaker pro v4 running in windows xp mode under the 64-bit version of windows 7 ultimate filemaker crashes when i resize the xp window. Upon resizing the window the window goes black briefly and then it looks like windows xp logon popup gets initiated before restoring the screen.

At that time i get an error message from filemaker indicating that the file may be corrupted. Also, if i shut down filemaker and try to restart it filemaker will not start unless i completely shut down the virtual mode and restart it. This is a quite old version of filemaker but it has run fine under standalone os's xp and vista.

Xp Mode Virtual Hard Drive Storage Amount Issue

I installed xp mode last week on my 7 ultimate edition installation. Overall the virtual pc has been working fine, but i have encountered a problem concerning the virtual hard drive. Within the xp mode itself, the vhd shows that it is only using 19gb of space, but in the user accounts within windows 7, the . Vhd file is 60gb. I'm not sure why the virtual pc is doing this, but it is a major problem since my physical hard drive only has 150gb for the 7 installation, and the file cannot be defragged in 7.

Home Premium 64-bit Virtual Pc

I was noticing that virtual pc 2007 is available on the list of student downloads, but there isn't a version that will run on windows 7 64-bit that i can find a link too, which kind of makes me sad since it would solve a lot of the issues im currently having with a c+ class i'm taking, teacher is making us use borland 5. 02 which i cant seem to get to work in windows 7, at least not completely, but anyway i spent most of yesterday and today repartitioning my hard drive and installing vista 32 bit on another section of my drive, but now i have to switch between them since all my visual studio 2008 projects are on my windows 7 partition. If a version of virtual pc 2007 exists for windows 7 home premium 64 bit then please let me know.

Xp Mode Is 64-bit Or 32-bit In Win 7 64-bit

I am planning on purchasing win 7 pro & installing the 64-bit version. I intend to make use of the "xp mode" feature if i can install 32-bit printer drivers within the xp mode, as my photo printers have no 64-bit drivers. I currently edit my photography on a win xp pro 64-bit pc, which is networked to a win xp pro 32-bitpc in order to print images. I need to know if "xp mode" is 32-bit - even when installed with the 64-bit version of win 7 pro. I want to be able to convert/edit my photos in win 7 64-bit, then print these images using "xp mode" via the 32-bit driversi intend to installin xp mode- all from the same pc. Is this do-able?

Dxdiag Problem In 32-bit Mode

I have windows 7 ultimate 64-bit edition, an intel q6600 cpu and a nvidia geforce gts 250 vga card.

When i start dxdiag, i get a long list of error windows, including:

Error: could not get basic display info

Error: could not get basic sound info

Error: problem getting display info

And about a half dozen more. When the dxdiag screen actually shows up, it doesn't display any of my system information. However, once i hit "run 64-bit dixdiag, " it then displays all of my information correctly.

The problem is that i was trying to play galcivii and it won't start because my "drivers are out of date" or something along those lines. (Which they aren't. ) When i read the debug file, it shows the following:

Debug message: version v2. 03 twilight of the arnor last updated on: thu jul 23 11:47:38 2009

Debug message: checking dx version.

Debug message: *********dxdiag info follows. *********

System info

Time: 6/6/2010, 17:07:42

Directx version: directx 9. 0c (4. 09. 0000. 0904)

Machine name: cortana

Operating system: windows professional (6. 1, build 7600) (7600. Win7_gdr. 100226-1909)

Languages: english (regional setting: english)

System manufacturer: system manufacturer

System model: system product name

Bios: phoenix - awardbios v6. 00pg

Processor: intel(r) core(tm)2 quad cpu q6600 @ 2. 40ghz (2 cpus)

Physical memory: 4094mb ram

Page file: 2308mb used, 5878mb available

Windows dir: c:windows

And then it displays some of my video card information. I currently have directx 11 (according to dxdiag in 64-bit mode) and windows 7 ultimate. So, the debug file looks like it's reading my dxdiag 32-bit information, which is either incorrect or non-existent. Any ideas how to get this working?

Will Micrografx Draw 6 Run In Xp Mode 32-bit ?

I have alot of important projects that were created with and old micrografx draw 6 program. It ran fine in xp (2006) machine. The software will not install in windows 7 home premium in any of the compatibility modes. The message says "the version of this file is not compatible with the version of windows you are running. Check your computer's systems information to see whether you need an x86 (32 bit) or x64 (64 bit) version of the program and then contact the software publisher. The software publisher is out of business. If i upgrade to windows 7 professional will i be able to install and use this software? If not do you know of any other software that could open and work or just print my saved files? They have a (. Drw) extension.

Cannot Install Xp Mode On Win 7 Pro 64-bit

I am running a legitimate, activated copy of windows 7 pro 64 bit with the latest windows updates applied on a fairly new system. I am needing to install xp mode http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx however i can't get past the activation problem. I select professional 64 bit, english and click on the first button to download xp mode. It requires me to download and run the windows validation components first, but after downloading and running these the message is that they are already installed. They don't get as far a running. How do i actually get the system validated? There's no error other than "windows activation is already installed" and then the installation stops.

How To Put Win 7 64-bit Into Sleep Mode ?

Every since i got this version of windows 7 7 ultimate and installed the 64-bit version over 8 times in the last 14 months i have had nothing but problems from not backing up at all to not going in sleep mode. I was trying to contact microsoft under the "contact us" topic and it brings me here. All i ever here is "let's re-install the operating system". Most of the time it does fix the problem but then another problem is created immediately i have literally spent more time trying to fix it then actually using it it's not the same problem over and over it is always different.

I just re-installed it again and it will not go into sleep mode. I have disabled everything & anything that could wake it from sleep mode. Nothing but the keyboard , mouse, monitor, internet, and power supply are being used. I have tried 4 different mice and 4 different keyboards. Don't they get the hint? There is something wrong with this version it always ends up going to level two support and trying to work on it for 2-3 hours for 3 days. The end result is always the same, re-install the operating system, again.

I'm not trying to get something for nothing, i would just like to get what i paid for. That is why i purchase the ultimate version. As it turns out it is an ultimate headache, ultimate waste of time, and ultimate problems. Just send me a new version. Give me a new product key over the phone. I will gladly give this ultimate worthless version back i have spent hours and hours trying to get this thing to go into "sleep mode" by reading countless forums and when i try to "contact microsoft" i get another forum if it was the same problem over & over i would think it is my computer but it is not. I just upgraded to another motherboard and power supply. I have contacted those manufactures and spent hours with them. Still no solution. I'm starting to think i just may have to ultimately switch operating systems. And thanks for posting the "contact us"button. Just like this version of windows 7 i have, it doesn't work.

Toggle Between Monitors

I used to be able to use pf7 on my sony to toggle between monitors on xp. Now i have win 7 and a brand new samsung lcd monitor and after installation the new software that came with it, the only monitor my laptop recognizes is the samsung. In the 'hardware and sound'view devices and printers"the only monitor the laptop has registered is the samsung and not the laptop, however, the only screen that is usable is the laptop and not the samsung.

The laptop screen is no longer listed in the drop down menu. How can i fix it so that i can toggle between the 2. ? I've tried uninstalling the software that came with the samsung. The other problem is that the image size on my laptop is now about 75% of the screen size and there is nothing obvious about how i can make the image larger. .

Win 7 And Triple Monitors

I am running windows 7 64 bit release candidate. With a dual monitor nvidia (pcie) 9800gtx+ card and an nvidia (pci) 9500gt card, i have had nothing but grief in trying to get win7 to recognize the cards. Downloading the windows 7 drivers from the nvidia site did not help. Upon installing the drivers, the machine blue screens and does a full memory dump before rebooting.

After reboot, it uses standard vga drivers. Both video cards' drivers are not used and are reported as having a problem in the device manager. Uninstalling one video card does not help. Uninstalling all drivers and reinstalling them does the same-  blue screen/ memory dump. The machine has a gigabyte motherboard with 4 gig of corsair memory and an intel q6600 processor. The same setup is being used on windows xp on another hard drive. It is running three monitors with no problems at all. The drivers downloaded is a whql-certified driver. The version is 186. 18

Media Center And Two Monitors

Current setup: using two monitors on my laptop (built-in and external display). Running windows 7 professional 64-bit

Problem: i watch movies/netflix/media center on my external display. When watching movies, my laptop screen just displays whatever was left on it for the entire time.

Solution? Without having to close my laptop, is there a way to make the un-used screen turn off while watching a movie? Either some sort of plugin/application, or maybe a setting in windows or media center? I've just been letting it stay on for now, but i don't want my laptop screen to get burned in.
