Stop a Virtual PC image from synchronizing the date with the host OS


As you might know, Virtual PC virtual machines synchronize their date with the date of the hosting operating system. There might however be situations when you need to change the date of the VM to something other than the date of the host OS. In these cases you may add the following XML section to the .VMC file:

 <integration>
  <microsoft>
   ….
   <components>
    <host_time_sync>
     <enabled type=”boolean”>false</enabled>
    </host_time_sync>
   </components>
   ….

  </microsoft>
 </integration>
