Q: Why can’t I mount the .ISO image of Visual Studio 2005 Beta 1 Refresh with Visual Studio 2005 Team System in Virtual PC 2004?


A: Microsoft Virtual PC 2004 and Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 support DVD images up to 2.2 GB in size, but the .ISO image for this release is 3.39 GB. If you want to try installing this release using virtual machines, you’ll need to burn a DVD, or use software like Microsoft Virtual CD Control Panel 2.1 on the host computer and then try using that drive from the virtual machine.

Applicability: Microsoft Virtual PC 2004 and Microsoft Virtual Server 2005
