    OK. Just checking you do followup. Giving answers and then hearing nothing is quite disappointing IMHO.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows...C#Linux_guests is doubtful about running Linux in VPC.
    The top of that page says "Other operating systems such as Linux may run, but are not officially supported, and Microsoft does not provide the necessary "Virtual Machine Additions" (which include essential drivers) for Linux"

    http://vpc.visualwin.com/ shows you need special settings like SafeMode

    So ... have you considered using VirtualBox? It's free, it runs on Windows, and it runs Ubuntu very well.
