    Controlling multi-boot systems

    I have downloaded VPC and XP-mode in Windows 7, and it is all working and I can even use my scanner again that did not work in Win7 (no drivers for Vista/W7 available) but are you suggesting that this VPC version is not complete? If so, where do I find the complete version? Could you explain...
