I need to move a virtual machine that was created with Windows Virtual PC to another machine. I just copied the files in the Virtual Machines folder to another PC, but when I tried to run it, I got this message:

'Windows XP mode' could not be restored because of either host processor type mismatch or lack of hardware-assisted virtualization support in the system

Is it possible copy a virtual machine? What is correct way of achieving this?


The right way should be cloning the virtual machine.

As far as you problem is concerned, have you by chance hibernated the VM last time? If so, try deleting the .vsv file and try again.
