  • XP Mode is a virtual machine running a preconfigured copy of XP Professional SP3.  XP Mode is a separate virtual computer that run in its own window on your Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate desktop.  It does not affect any programs or data presently running on your Windows 7 installation.  The download site is at

    Glad you asked. I posted this somewhere else on Microsoft and was given 2 suggestions. The first didn't work (try clean boot) and the second was to post it here.  Here is my initial post:

    I am trying to install XP Mode on my Windows 7 Pro 64 bit system and at the end of the setup process I get an error message that states "Could Not Complete Setup, Please try again", I have tried 4 time with the same results and have re-downloaded the files twice. I do have virtualization turned on in the BIOS. Any suggestions?

    Thanks for any help.
