Windows XP mode for Windows 7

Posted by download in Software on 22-10-2010

Windows XP Mode is a virtual machine package for Windows Virtual PC containing a pre-installed, licensed copy of Windows XP Professional SP3 as its guest OS. Pre-installed integration components allow applications running within the virtualized environment to appear as if running directly on the host, sharing the native desktop and Start Menu of Windows 7 as well as participating in file type associations. XP Mode applications run in a Terminal Services session in the virtualized Windows XP, and are accessed via Remote Desktop Protocol by a client running on the Windows 7 host. Applications running in Windows XP mode do not have compatibility issues as they are actually running inside a Windows XP virtual machine and redirected using RDP to the Windows 7 host. For 64-bit editions of Windows 7, XP Mode may be used to run 16-bit applications; it includes NTVDM.
Windows XP mode was not released for, and will fail to function on, any editions of Windows 7 other than Professional, Enterprise and Ultimate Editions. However, running a Windows XP virtual machine is possible on editions of Windows 7 that cannot run XP Mode.

*64bit Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate editions
*2GB system RAM
*A CPU that supports chip-level virtualization
