Windows 7 XP mode
« on: Aug 07, 2009, 07:20 PM »
So, I'm sure you've all heard about the XP mode coming in Windows 7. MS has released the Windows XP Mode and Windows Virtual PC Release Candidate that can be installed in the RC of Windows 7. It can be downloaded here.

I installed it today on my test setup, install went smooth and it seems to work fine. I'll get out some old programs and install them and see how that goes. Full directions and an app that will test your system to see if it meets the requirements are at the site.
