    No, the graphics card is a virtual VGA, not the same as your physical hardware. To install tools, go to the Action menu and select Insert Integration Services setup disk. I saw this in a tutorial for older Hyper-V version, but I hope it is the same in your case. Once you do that VGA, LAN and audio will be installed and work OK.

    After installing driver they may be identified and installed. It is safe to remove but until you install drivers for them they will reappear. To find out what they are you can use the utility Aida64. Load it and go to Devices area, Windows Devices. It should tell you what they are, so you can find drivers, if necessary.

    re.....Action menu and select Insert Integration Services setup disk......can't find this, unless it appears when the virtual machine is stopped...will check later, just updated IE to IE8 and installed chrome, it's Amazon how many sites refuse to open in IE6.....updating XP from a site called wsusoffline.net where all the updates for XP are kept, I am running the program but excluded SP's as mine already up to SP3 but it's downloading and installing all XP updates since SP3......should help a bit.....when finished I will check the action menu again...will look at aida64.....i usually copy and paste the device ID, but hopefully this will be quicker and better

    thanks again for all your help and support.....really appreciate it....

    UPDATE after downloading all the updates
    wsusoffline.net it said it wasn't compatable with VXP....which I assume dans virtual XP
    Stopped virtual machine and the option under action menu is still not there.....wonder how I get these files....

    Look all the menus for something along the lines "Install" or "insert". You can also use the good old Windows Update if you go to IE 8 (doesn't work in other browsers) and go to the address http://update.microsoft.com/windowsu...6/default.aspx Hopefully it still works. If you see one or two upgrades marked as they should be installed separately from the others, do these first to avoid issues and then go to the address again and install the rest. You may have to go several times until you install all the available updates and nothing is missing. Depending on your software you may also need to install Microsoft .NET component. It is version 1.1 through version 4.0 (last compatible with XP). In theory you can only install version 4, but I always install them all from 1.1 to the next to make sure there is no application that will try to use older files not present in newer versions and fail. I know it is a lot of work to find and install all these updates, that's why I have them all at my USB hard disk. I don't have to download each time, I just install them.

    thanks again....how big are all these files on your USB HDD ? suppose it's a cheek but wonder if you use drop box or box.net and could upload them for me to download .......as I said it's a bit of a cheek asking, I am sure I can find them all..

    PS all I have in action menu are, connect, settings, turn off, shut down, save, pause, reset, checkpoint, move, export, rename help......
    PPS http://update.microsoft.com/windowsu...6/default.aspx just tells you to turn on auto updates..

    wish someone one had an ISO of post SP3 update, would be handy

    Don't be afraid... Google is your friend! Use it!

    Found with Google:

    .NET version 1.1
    .NET version 2.0 SP2
    .NET version 3.0 SP1
    .NET version 3.5 SP1
    .NET version 4.0
    Internet Explorer 8 for Windows XP
    Service Pack 3 for Windows XP

    The last two you may already have them installed but it doesn't hurt to archive them for future use.

    To make sure you have all .NET components and all programs will find the required files, I recommend installing all .NET versions starting from 1.1 to 4.0. Each newer version updates the previous one with more functionality. It is tempting to just install version 4.0 but I have encountered some programs looking for files from older versions and not working properly. Of course you cannot install an earlier version when a newer version is already installed! You must install the earlier first.

    If you also wanted to play games (if that is possible in Hyper-V) you may also need to install latest DirectX Runtime. Running the file will ask you for a folder to extract the setup files. To actually install DirectX browse to that folder and run DXSETUP. Of course you should first install the virtual VGA driver. Don't look only in the action menu. Look in all the menus. Search Help about it.

    Hmm, the guy gathered all the latest Windows XP updates before end of support in one unofficial Service Pack! Good job! I'll download that too so I have less work to do next time I install Windows XP. Too bad it is for English Windows XP only and cannot be used with another language version. In that case I can install English Windows XP Professional and then add the Greek Language Pack if I want (cannot be added in the Home version). It's better than nothing! Thank you.
