Using VPC for Development and Debugging Whitepaper

Microsoft Virtual PC 2004 Development and Debugging

"Microsoft Virtual PC offers many features to facilitate the software development process. By using Virtual PC to create a valid representation of an end-user machine, developers can test application changes on virtual end-user machines instead of on the developer’s physical machine. This helps to mitigate the "works on my machine" syndrome, thus reducing overall development and test cycle times. Fixing a bug before it goes to the testing group is much faster than fixing it after testers detect it."

This is a 1.16MB, 71 page, Word whitepaper that provides some good poop on using VPC in a development or test role. This is a "whitepaper" in the original sense as it’s not a bunch of marketing white noise, but instead contains some cool, useful, detailed and technical information. For example, page 12 ends with the creating of a INF that will add "edit" and "register" Explorer right click options for VMC files...

Worth a quick read if VPC is on your Dev Dude Utility Belt...
