    Windows6.1-KB977206-x86 which allows Windows XP to run on systems without Hardware Virtualization does not install.

    I keep getting a message that says

    This update is not applicable on your system

    Im running Windows 7 Ultimate.

    any help will be appreciated.

    you need to install xp mode and virtual pc first. Then it will install, otherwise it won't

    you need to install XPmode first and then apply this update as it is an "update patch".

    Not just xp mode, it is a patch for virtual pc, it will only install if you install virtual pc first. Windows6.1-KB958559-x64 needs to be installed first.
