Earlier this month Connectix Corp. released Virtual PC 0006 Additions, a 3.7MB download that can be applied to version 3 and 4 releases of its popular PC emulation software for the Mac, Virtual PC.
Virtual PC 0006 Additions provide various enhancements and improvements to Virtual PC that help the software integrate better with the Macintosh, including:
Drag and drop
Integrated mouse support
International keyboard support
DOS CD-ROM support
Optimized video drivers
VPC helper (includes SyncTime)
If you’re an owner of a PowerBook G4 running Virtual PC v4.0.2, you may also be interested in Virtual PC 0006 Additions’ support for widescreen resolutions — the software add-on will enable Virtual PC 4.0.2 to work in 896×600 and 1152×768 pixel resolutions.
Connectix offers a variety of caveats and recommendations for using the Virtual PC 0006 Additions installer — please make sure to read the included documentation thoroughly before running the installer. Some procedures change depending on whether you’re running Windows 95, 98, Me, NT 4.0 or 2000.
