Windows Vista 30-Day Evaluation VPC


On Wednesday, my colleague Christian Beauclair posted about the expiry of the Betas and Release Candidates of Windows Vista.

If you think about it, it’s pretty important to test out your applications on Windows Vista to make sure it’s a good experience for the people who will be using your software, website or application.


Recently, we announced the availability of a 30-day evaluation copy of Windows Vista as a VirtualPC image. Here are the steps to obtain and run this copy of Windows Vista:
