Windows 7 XP Mode

So most versions of Windows 7 allow you to run a free version Windows XP in a Virtual Machine to maintain compatibility with some programs that won’t make the jump to Windows 7. I noticed it was a bit tricky to find the Windows 7 XP Mode install and directions on the Microsoft site so… is the page you need to access: There are two files that need to be downloaded, one of them if pretty sizable so give yourself the adequate amount of time. Impressions on the setup will follow.

    The install is pretty seamless and once you get it going it\’s just like having an XP machine. I couldn\’t get the OS to properly recognize thd dvd drive as a dvd drive. Everything is accessible on a disc it just appears like a hardrive instead. If you have the right version of Win 7 to get this I would recommend having XP mode just in case.
