More Information

VMCX files serve the same purpose as VMC files. However, VMCX files are used by Windows Explorer to provide information about the VM in the Explorer window. Additionally, Windows Virtual PC places VMCX files in the [user]\Virtual Machines\ directory while VMC files are placed within the user's [user]\AppData\ directory.
