Windows XP integrated in Windows 7

In a few days, exactly April 30th, the Release Candidate of Windows 7, the operating system of Microsoft, will be available for download by MSDN and TechNet subscribers (public availability will begin on May 5th) and Microsoft announced that they have integrated in Windows 7 a feature Windows XP Mode (XPM).

Windows XP Mode is specifically designed to help small businesses move to Windows 7. Windows XP Mode provides you with the flexibility to run many older productivity applications on a Windows 7 based PC.

All you need to do is to install suitable applications directly in Windows XP Mode which is a virtual Windows XP environment running under Windows Virtual PC. The applications will be published to the Windows 7 desktop and then you can run them directly from Windows 7.

Windows XP Mode and Windows Virtual PC are best experienced on your new Windows 7 PC. We will be soon releasing the beta of Windows XP Mode and Windows Virtual PC for Windows 7 Professional and Windows 7 Ultimate.


Specifically designed to help businesses move smoothly to Windows 7, Windows XP Mode runs using the Virtual PC technology. Thus, many applications designed for Windows XP can be installed and runned without risk of incompatibility on a PC with Windows 7 and a processor based virtualization.

Available for Windows 7 Professional and Windows 7 Ultimate, all information will be accessible directly from the desktop of Windows 7.
