internet connectionmicrosoft-virtual-pcwindowswindows 7

I have installed Windows 7 on Microsoft virtual pc 2007 SP1 on Windows 7.
I configured networking adapter to use Shared networking (NAT).
But still I cannot access the internet from the virtual machine.

Note : Windows XP vms with the same settings (NAT) connects to the internet with no problem.

Executing ipconfig results:

The issue is with the integration feature enabled. On your host machine, open up the properties for your network card and add a service called "Internet Protocol Verision 4". In the virtual PC, configure the network to use the network card and it should work.

I just experienced this myself a couple days ago. Here is the website I used to fix my problem. http://claytonj.wordpress.com/2007/02/02/connect-virtual-pc-to-internet/
