Virtual PC 2007: console disappearing

I recently experience a problem with VPC 2007 where the console disappear off-screen and couldn’t be retrieved, even when restarting vpc etc. The fix for this is as follows (on vista):
Access options.xml at C:\Users\[yourusername]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Virtual PC\options.xml
Change from

    <window>
        <console>
            <height type="integer">25</height>
            <left_position type="integer">4294935296</left_position>
            <top_position type="integer">4294935296</top_position>
            <visible type="boolean">true</visible>
            <width type="integer">160</width>
        </console>
    </window>

To

    <window>
        <console>
            <height type="integer">575</height>
            <left_position type="integer">0</left_position>
            <top_position type="integer">0</top_position>
            <visible type="boolean">true</visible>
            <width type="integer">359</width>
        </console>
    </window>
