Hello,

Windows XP Mode is a downloadable compatibility choice that is available for the Professional, Enterprise, and Ultimate editions of Windows 7.

Windows XP Mode uses the up-to-date version of Microsoft Virtual PC to allow you to run an installation of Windows XP virtually under Windows 7.

The difference between Windows XP Mode and other operating system virtualization solutions is that all applications that you install on the Windows XP Mode client will be available automatically on the Windows 7 host computer.

Thank You,

John Major.

One of the many features in Microsoft Windows 7 is Windows XP Mode. This feature allows you to run applications compatible only with Microsoft Windows XP. Windows XP Mode is composed of a full copy of the Windows XP operating system that runs as a virtual machine on Windows Virtual PC which is a Type 2 client hypervisor.

Previous versions of Windows Virtual PC required certain hardware virtualization-enabled CPU models. At the moment, host computers must simply be powerful enough to run two operating systems. Windows XP Mode is available for Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate, and Enterprise editions as free download. Though Windows XP Mode allows you to run Windows XP applications, you should also consider the platform architecture where they are designed to run.

Windows XP Mode runs a 32-bit virtual machine of the Microsoft Windows XP operating system. If you want to run 64-bit applications, you won’t be able to install them under Windows XP Mode. You must use the 32-bit versions of the applications.
