Running Orcas Beta1 in VPC validation problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am an MSDN universal subscriber. I wanted to try out the Orcas (Visual Studio 2008) beta 1. I opted to use the pre-configured Virtual PC images that are available to MSDN subscribers for download. Now when I start up that Virtual Machine in VPC2007 I get the prompt that this copy of Windows may not be a geniune version. When I try to use the Genuine Windows Validation Tool it says it can't validate and that I should try again later. I tried over and over with no resolution. Does anyone know how to get around this issue with the Orcas Beta. I will also ask this on the Orcas Beta forum.

    Can you run the diagnostics tool (noted above) in your VPC and output its results here?
