Can you be more specific please, what are you trying to achieve - there's bound to be lots of great options for you, VS2k5 is WAY old and everyone's years ahead of it, but let's pick you the right product by understanding your requirements fully first. – Chopper3 Sep 25 '11 at 15:58

You can't. The product doesn't support multiple virtual CPUs within a single VM.

Since you asked, almost any virtualization product issued in the last few years supports multiple virtual CPUs. Since you're already using Microsoft's virtualization, you should probably look at Hyper-V.
