LBA1 playable using MS Virtual PC

According to this entry on Ben Armstrong's blog LBA1 "runs very well under Virtual PC".
Ben Armstrong is the program manager of the Virtual Machine team at Microsoft.

So if you can't get LBA1 to work using DosBox or LBAwin you can give it a try with MS Vritual PC.

I wonder if it can also properly run LBA2.

If you have Linux try the free Qemu instead.

but with LbaWin v0.8.1 it should be no problem to run LBA1 on XP, I've tried several things to get LBA run with the old Version of LbaWin, Funnyfrogs patch and DosBox, the latter worked but only jerking.
