    According to Kari, Integration Services are not available for an XP guest. If you have Integration Services, then maybe the difference is that you installed XP through Hyper-V, while I attached a pre-existing XP installation (which I created a long time ago in Virtual PC 2007) to Hyper-V. I could try creating a new XP virtual installation through Hyper-V to see if that makes a difference, though it sucks to have to start all over.

    Edit: So I installed XP on a new VHD created with Hyper-V Manager, and there is no video, audio, or network drivers, and the mouse remains captured in the window, requiring you to manually release it; in other words, no different than the old Virtual PC-created XP VHD that I attached to Hyper-V in the first place.
    I came looking for solution so, share with everybody: simply get an vmguest.iso and mount it in Guest XP

    Smooth and easy

    PD. I put some spaces in the URL for share it without needing of register.

    Thank you. That's better than nothing, but it is still crappy compared to Virtual PC. Running that vmguest.iso file gave me network and really bad video drivers (16-bit color only, worse than the full 32-bit color I had with no video drivers at all). It didn't give me any sound drivers at all. When you go from windowed mode to fullscreen, it doesn't auto-match the resolution of the host OS like Virtual PC does, and though the mouse pointer is now no longer captured, it is of little use because dragging and dropping files from the guest OS to the host OS doesn't work, nor does copy and pasting (though that may work if I create a virtual switch, which I haven't done yet, and I probably won't bother, because 16-bit color and no sound sucks).

    Is there any company on Earth that's better than Microsoft at making their products worse with each successive version or replacement? Do they do it out of spite? It is utterly bizarre.

    Here you go the solution for video issues...

    And you can access via RDP with 24 bit color depth. And via RDP you do have audio from the virtual PC. You can't drag and drop but you can use the clipboard between host and guest and get fullscreen mode fiting the whole monitor. Or share units, printers, etc, etc....

    Does anyone have a solution for automatically releasing the mouse capture?

    I dont care for audio or any of that in my virtual PC even tho it would be nic. I just want to be able to move my mouse from the guest back to the host machine without having to release it.

    Seems like it worked fine in windows 8 but then i got a Win 10 PC and its forcing me to manually release the mouse.

    I added an existing .VHD (XP SP3 guest OS, which I originally created in Virtual PC 2007 running on an XP SP3 host OS) to Hyper-V via the Hyper-V Manager. It worked fine, except, I have no "Insert Integration Services Setup Disk" option in the Action menu, so I have no video, sound, or network drivers in the guest OS. I've already uninstalled the Virtual Machine Additions package from the guest OS (which is Virtual PC's version of Hyper-V Integration Services), rebooted, as well as deleted and reattached the .VHD from Hyper-V Manager several times, to no avail. There is no VMGUEST.ISO file in my Windows 10 System32 folder either, so I can't attach it to the guest OS's virtual DVD drive manually.



    I wish I could just have Virtual PC back. Even if I weren't having this particular issue, Hyper-V looks like a downgrade to me, at least with regard to what I use a virtual machine for. Virtual PC's keyboard shortcuts are better, the shutdown options are better, and the methods of attaching disc images are better. Hyper-V does seem to have plenty of powerful features that Virtual PC doesn't have, none of which I care about though. I only use a virtual machine as a sandboxed test bed for potentially malicious software and websites, and once I have the guest OS configured the way I want it, I always revert it back to that clean state when I'm finished. Virtual PC was perfect for this, and I doubt highly that there is any real reason why it can't run on Windows 10. In fact, I read a forum post where someone upgraded from Windows 7 (which they had Virtual PC installed on) to Windows 8, and Virtual PC continued to work fine. However, when you try to install Virtual PC on Windows 8, you get the same 0x80096002 error that you get when you try to install it on Windows 10, which tells me that Microsoft is just being belligerent; i.e., arbitrarily blocking the installation on Windows 8 and 10 just to irritate people.
    In Windows Server 2012 R2 there is a vmguest.iso in C:\Windows\System32. For reasons unknown to me, in Windows 10 this file is not there. If you can get yourself a copy of this file, then just insert it as a CD in your VM and you probably can install the guest support components.

    Note: I did not try this on a VM running on Windows 10. YMMV.

    Thank you for the link. Meanwhile I got the vmguest.iso from an official download from Microsoft, contained in some software, whose name I unfortunately no longer know. I found the tip in another forum and the integration services work wonderfully with my XP in Hyper-V together (time synchronization, mouse). I do not understand why these are not included in Windows 10 + Hyper-V for WindowsXP as guest.
