  • It looks broken, go on with step 2.
     
    This is what it says on step 1:
     
    Download and install Windows XP Mode at
     
    Step 1:  Download Windows XP Mode
    Step 2:  Download Windows Virtual PC
    Step 3:  Update Windows XP Mode
     
     
    It's actually not quite correct in that either, it should be
     
    Step 1: download Windows XP Mode.
    Step 2: download Windows Virtual PC.
    Step 3: run setup file downloaded in Step 1.
    Step 4: run update downloaded in Step 2. (with a required reboot)
    Step 5: Execute Windows XP Mode from the start menu.

  • Bob -   

     

    I went to the page you put up - put in the os, etc.  and it takes me to the page that won't work.

    Any other choices?

  • Please be specific about "won't work".  What error do you get? 

    What edition of Windows 7 are you using?  You must be using Windows 7 Professional or above to use XP Mode.

  • Do you have Windows 7?

  • Yes - Windows 7 Pro

    I don't get an error message - it just circles back to the same screen - won't print and then it won't allow for download because it hasn't been printed.

    We took off pop-up blocker and tried downloading without printing and it's downloading.  I'll let you know.
