Microsoft’s CodePlex Releases “XP-More” Windows 7 Virtual PC Managment Tool

 
XP-More is a tool that helps manage Windows 7 Virtual Machines (XP Mode and any other). Specifically, it makes duplication of VMs a no brainer – no more raw XML editing and manually duplicating files.
Windows 7 comes with a built-in virtual machine. Its first use is to provide backward compatibility by making a Windows XP SP3 VM available (known as XP Mode). However, other virtual machines can be created as well. The management of the virtual machines is done from a special folder, where virtual machines can be created, configured and launched.
 
The built-in VM management capabilities are quite basic. If all you’re looking for is an XP environment, you can make do with that. Whoever, if you’d like to duplicate existing VMs, there’s some delicate manual work you’ll have to do. That is, unless you have XP-More.
 
XP-More is a free and portable tool, which helps you manage your virtual machines. Want a new environment where you can test-drive the latest VS2010 RC? Want to create a backup of an existing installation before you make some changes? Just click a button, and your done.
