Virtual PC 2.1 and Mac OS9.2 on Beige G3

I just purchased VPC 2.1 new in a shrinkwrapped box.

After installing:

1. I can't open the Windows Drive on my Mac
2. When I open VPC, it "hangs" at the black screen which appears before the
Windows 95 Start-up Screen. The system does not hang, but I have to do a
forced quit of VPC.

I tried booting up with OS 8.6 and the whole system hangs, forcing a Restart
key sequence.

3 years ago, we used VPC 2 and later 3 on some Imacs at a job I used to
have.

Any suggestions?

Is it known not to work with these operating systems. I think we used 8.1
and 8.5 back then.

OK, I did my own research and found this:


Can someone e-mail me the updater, or does any one have a later version for
sale?
