Thread: Virtual PC Speed tips?
10-15-2003, 02:37 PM #1RoadDogGuestVirtual PC Speed tips?
Let me first say that this is my first mac.
I finally made the switch when MS released 3 critical updates in a couple of days.
Beside the normal crashes during my work.
I bought a G4 1.25 added 1gig of ram.
I made the switch for my business but ran into a problem with an incompatability issue on my USPS shipping software so I had to buy the virtual PC to overcome this.
The problem is Virtual PC is terribly slow. To the point I can't get any work done. (I dedicated 512 megs of ram to Virtual PC)
I've got almost 3k invested and can't get any work done.
Is there a way to speed up Virtual PC? any tweaks?
I killed all startup programs and it helped a bit but still hangs for several minutes sometimes.
Ironic that I wanted to get away from MS and I'm still stuck with Gates bloated OS.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Besides that I love the Mac.

BTW it's VPC XP PRO if that helps.

I should have known better going with xp.
I wonder if I can get a refund from MS
