Windows 8 XP Mode?

Nathan Simon Nathan Simon Profile: Nathan Simon

Windows XP Mode has been replaced with a more powerful and scalable virtualization option, called you guessed it, Hyper-V!

So how do you enable Hyper-V so you can start virtualizing your applications that aren’t compatible with Windows 8?

I am going to tell you. Let’s get started.

  1. Open Control Panel
  2. Programs and Features
  3. Turn Windows Features on or off
  4. Select Hyper-V and click OK (since your a techie like me, may as well check off Telnet Client as well!)
  5. Restart your PC and you will be ready to dive into Hyper-V Goodness!

Good Luck!

Any questions you know where to find me!
