Run Old Apps On Vista With New Microsoft Virtualization Tool

Microsoft has released the first public beta of MED-V a virtualization tool that will allow you to easily create, deliver and centrally manage virtual Windows XP or 2000 environments. The tool is based on and runs with Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 to help users to run legacy applications on their Windows Vista (and presumably Windows 7) desktops.

According to the Official Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP) blog, the final version of MED-V 1.0 is slated to release in the second quarter of this year as a part of the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack.

MDOP is a suite of virtualization and management technologies that extends the Windows platform by enabling user productivity anywhere, greater IT control of the desktop, and streamlined PC management.

For more details on MED-V visit the Official MDOP blog. To test out MED-V simply register at and download the beta software.
