Hi Joshuad31,

Your good words is a big reward to us.

we've been working on VMLite since 2005, and haven't made one cent yet. Thanks for the encouraging words.

You can safely uninstall VPC, there is no dependency at all.

I've been using VMLite for almost a year now, having abandoned Virtual PC as unstable and of lower quality (example: 16-bit graphics on VPC and 32-bit on VMLite). During this time I have only suffered one irrecoverable crash of one VM when XP Mode wouldn't load fully.

Although all my work has been on VMLite I do keep the original VPC virtual machines as backups. If a VMLite ever crashed out I can reinstall a new VMLite machine off those old files.

To-date, with that one exception, VMLite has proven to be a high quality, stable solution to my needs and I recommend it to anyone who needs to run multiple operating systems.

But as always, especially when dealing with Windows, backup, backup, backup.

This was posted by Admin 1 year 7 months ago.

" Cons:

(1) VMLite does not support USB devices at the moment, while VPC/XP Mode has strong supports for USB devices. (We are working on it, takes quite some time, though)

(2) VPC/XP Mode does better job to integrate individual virtual apps, with taskbar integration. We are implementing this feature on VMLite too.

In summary, after we implement USB and single application mode, VMLite will be superior to VPC in every aspect. "

What progress has there been on these two issues in that time? Are they now fixed?

Thank you. I had not updated in a long time and missed it. Good to know.

I don't want to start a whole new thread on this, but as good as those improvements are over Virtual PC, how does VMLite compare to VirtualBox and VMware? Can you claim all the same improvements over those applications?

I want to recommend VMLite Workstation itself to people who use those and I wish to be able to tell them the differences.
