How To Install Windows XP Mode (XPM) on Windows 7

David Davis David Davis Profile: David Davis

I was reading Daniel Petri’s latest article over at the Petri Knowledgebase – How To Install Windows XP Mode (XPM) on Windows 7.

I was interested in this article because, honestly, I didn’t know what “Windows XP Mode (XPM)” was. Daniel says, “Windows XP Mode (or XPM for short) is a new feature of Windows 7 (available only in the Professional, Enterprise and Ultimate editions) that can help businesses to upgrade their computers to Windows 7. It does so by providing a virtual Windows XP environment capable of running many Windows XP-compatible business and productivity applications.”

He goes on to show how it can help you, how to install it, and how to use it. To read the full article, just checkout: How To Install Windows XP Mode (XPM) on Windows 7

    You need to have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate to be able to install XP Mode. Microsoft website has a free download for the XP mode. Its great because if you have the 64 bit you can install 32 bit programs and toggle be tween the 2 operationg systems. The only glitch I see is its does not recognize the Antivirus program that is installed on Windows 7. So I am not quite clear if Anti Virus program is required on the XP mode as well?
