>Virtual PC 2007 will not normally install under Windows 2000 but there
is a simple procedure on the internet to edit the MSI installation file
so that it will not refuse to load if it detects w2k. It uses a
program called Orca and is extremely straightforward. Afterwards, it
will install and, so far as I can see, it runs perfectly.

Interesting. The ability to edit MSI files would be helpful in many instances.
Where can I find this procedure? I gather Orca is part of Microsoft Windows SDK
for Windows, which is enormous. What do I need to download in order to edit MSI
