How to Install Windows XP Mode

Postby guest » Fri Jan 08, 2010 10:42 pm

Setting up Windows XP Mode in Windows 7 requires two free downloads—first is a small download that enables the Windows Virtual PC host program, followed by a separate download that installs, configures, and activates the licensed copy of Windows XP SP3.
1. Go to the Windows Virtual PC site and click Download Windows XP Mode and Windows Virtual PC.
2. Select your Windows 7 system type (32-bit or 64-bit) and language.
3. Follow the Web site’s instructions to download and install Windows Virtual PC, and then Windows XP Mode.
4. Restart your system.
5. Launch Windows XP Mode by opening the Start menu, choosing All Programs, clicking Windows Virtual PC, and then clicking Windows XP Mode.
6. Accept the license agreement and enter a password for the default administrative account. If you select Remember Credentials (Recommended) in this dialog box, whenever you launch Windows XP Mode from your Windows 7 desktop or Start menu, you’ll be logged on automatically with the saved credentials.
7. Allow the setup process to complete, then customize and secure your new Windows XP installation to suit your needs and preferences. If you create additional user accounts, be aware that the system will let you create accounts without passwords but won’t let you log on to those accounts.
