Simple Help posted a tutorial on how to use SecurAble, a simple to install and to use application that provides three stats, including the crucial one that determines whether your machine will run in “XP mode”: “Hardware Virtualization”. “XP mode” allows you to continue to use your XP applications on Windows 7 by running them on a virtual machine – which might save a lot of money. SecurAble supports investigating both, Intel and AMD processors.

You’re lucky – no need to buy new software now🙂

No luck – sorry😦

Keep in mind also the minimum hardware requirements for Windows 7: at least a 1 GHz 32-bit / 64-bit processor, 1.25 GB of RAM (2GB recommended) and 15 GB hard disk space per virtual Windows environment (recommended). In addition: Windows “XP Mode” will only be available in Windows 7 Enterprise, Windows 7 Professional, and Windows 7 Ultimate – you get nothing for nothing from Micro$oft.

Head over to SecurAble to download the utility.
