Connectix, a company that got its start selling software that lets PCs run video games written for gaming consoles, has expanded into a new market. On Monday, the San Mateo, Calif., company released $199 software that lets PCs run multiple versions of Windows on the same computer at the same time. The software is useful for companies whose technical support personnel have to handle customers with numerous different versions of Windows, the company said.
