[Direct Download Links] Windows XP Mode and Windows Virtual PC for Windows 7

Windows XP Mode and Windows Virtual PC are special programs available for Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise and Ultimate editions which allow you to run multiple Windows environments such as Windows XP Mode, etc from your Windows 7 desktop.

Windows XP Mode for Windows 7 helps you in easily installing and running old Windows XP applications directly from your Windows 7 desktop. It utilizes virtualization technology, such as Windows Virtual PC, to provide a virtual Windows XP environment for Windows 7.


One interesting thing to note is that if your system doesn't have HAV technology and you try to run XP Mode or Virtual PC, you get an error message similar to following:

Unable to start Windows Virtual PC because hardware-assisted virtualization is disabled.

To solve this issue, Microsoft released a patch KB977206 for Windows 7 systems which removes this prerequisite and the system becomes able to run Windows XP Mode and Virtual PC.

You can download all 3 components: Windows Virtual PC, Windows XP Mode and the patch KB977206 using following topic:

  • Cool King said "Windows XP Mode can only be used with Windows virtual pc." That's not true. I just finished playing a very old game in XP mode that would not play in Windows 7 even with compatibility mode. I didn't use virtual PC. I used VMWare 3.
