Get Old Apps Running on Windows XP or Windows Vista by Installing VirtualPC

Microsoft Virtual PC is a virtualization suite for Microsoft Windows operating systems

Features

Use Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 to run multiple operating systems at the same time on the same physical computer. Switch between virtual machines with the click of a button. Use virtual machines to run legacy applications, provide support, train users, and enhance quality assurance.

Virtual PC lets you create separate virtual machines on your Windows desktop, each of which virtualizes the hardware of a complete physical computer. Use virtual machines to run operating systems such as MS-DOS, Windows, and OS/2. You can run multiple operating systems at once on a single physical computer and switch between them as easily as switching applications—instantly, with a mouse click. Virtual PC is perfect for any scenario in which you need to support multiple operating systems, whether you use it for tech support, legacy application support, training, or just for consolidating physical computers.

Compatibility

Windows XP, Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

How to Use

On VirtualPC install windows as you install windows on real computer. And do all things as you do it on your computer. The application is best for testing any software or maintaining compatibility problems. With Virtual Machine Wizard make a settings file then create virtual hard drive where windows will be installed. While using VirtualPC more ram is appreciated also if you have a second hard drive than performance will be better.
