Update to Windows XP Mode in Windows 7

E-mail Print PDF

One of the great compatibility features of Windows 7 is "XP Mode".  Simply put this tool runs Windows XP inside of Windows 7, allowing many older programs to run on your new PC.  XP Mode still only runs on certain versions of Windows 7 (Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise).  However the requirement that your processor supports hardware virtualization has been removed.  This is definitely a win for consumers because many low-end and midrange CPUs do not include that feature.  To use this feature you still must download the standard XP Mode package (available here).  After installing it, you can get the update to remove the virtualization requirement here (32 bit, 64 bit).
