When I try to run it against my VirtualPC WinXP container, I get a 'file read
error' right when it gets to 2GB. My VirtualPC container actually consists of
4 seperate files, each at most 2GB in size, so I am guessing the utility
fails because it wants one big file (not multiple segments).
Does anyone know if it is possible to connect these 4 files into one large
container - and if so how?

COPY X.VHD+X.V01+X.V02+X.V03 Y.VHD
should work. There's a blog from a guy who works for microsoft where this was discussed. Search for "Virtual PC Guy".
