  1. Sometimes I wonder about Microsoft’s testers… (Re:Issue 4: If a VM is configured with 3 virtual processors, the SCVMM Admin Console crashes. )

    1. Works on 1 CPU? Check

    2. Works on 2 CPU’s Check

    3. Works on 4 CPU’s? Check

    Hmmm. I seem to me missing something but I can’t figure it out – Forget it – Let’s order Pizza and ship this thing!

  2. Robert,
