Windows XP Mode 1.2.7235.0 release candidate
« on: 07. August 2009., 09:37:36 »

Microsoft Windows Virtual PC 6.1.7234.0 RC/ Windows XP Mode RC for Windows 7
Virtual PC is a powerful software virtualization solution that allows you to run multiple PC-based operating systems simultaneously on one workstation, providing a safety net to maintain compatibility with legacy applications while you migrate to a new operating system. It also saves reconfiguration time, so your support, development, and training staff can work more efficiently. Use Microsoft Virtual PC 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. 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.

Virtual PC provides a time-saving and cost-saving solution anywhere users must run multiple operating systems.

Use Virtual PC in the following scenarios:

• Ease Migration: Run legacy applications in a virtual machine instead of delaying the deployment of a new operating system just because of application incompatibility. Test your migration plans using virtual machines instead of actual physical computers.
• Do More in Less Time: Support staff can run multiple operating systems on a single physical computer and switch between them easily. They can also restore virtual machines to their previous state almost instantly. Train students on multiple operating systems and virtual networks instead of purchasing and supporting additional computers.
• Streamline Deployment: Test software on different operating systems more easily. One crashing application or operating system doesn’t affect others.
• Accelerate Development: Increase quality assurance by testing and documenting your software on multiple operating systems using virtual machines. Decrease time-to-market by reducing reconfiguration time.
Windows Virtual PC is the latest Microsoft virtualization technology that allows you to run many productivity applications on a virtual Windows environment, with a single click, directly from a Windows 7-based PC.
Windows Virtual PC has a number of exciting features including:
• Seamless Applications: Launch applications installed on a virtual machine directly from the Windows 7 desktop, as if they were installed on the Windows 7 host.
• Simplified UI: Enhanced UI that is easy to use. Integrated with Windows 7 Explorer.
• Integration Features: Allows clipboard sharing, drive sharing, and printer redirection between Windows 7 and the virtual machine.
• USB support: Users can access USB devices attached to the host, directly from virtual machines. These devices include Printers and Scanners, Flash Memory/Sticks and External Hard Drives, Digital Cameras, and more.
Windows Virtual PC supports the following Host and Guest Operating systems
• Host: Windows 7 Home Basic, Windows 7 Home Premium, Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Ultimate, Windows 7 Enterprise.
• Guest: Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) Professional, Windows Vista Enterprise Service Pack 1 (SP1), Windows Vista Ultimate Service Pack 1 (SP1), Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Ultimate, Windows 7 Enterprise.

Windows XP Mode for Windows 7 makes it easy to install and run many of your Windows XP productivity applications directly from a Windows 7-based PC. It utilizes virtualization technology such as Windows Virtual PC to provide a Virtual Windows XP environment for Windows 7.

Windows XP Mode provides a 32-bit Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 (SP3) environment pre-loaded on a virtual hard disk. Client virtualization software, like Windows Virtual PC is a pre-requisite to use Windows XP Mode.

Note: Upgrade from Windows XP Mode Beta to Windows XP Mode RC is not supported. Uninstall Windows XP Mode Beta and Windows Virtual PC Beta (if applicable) before installing this RC release. Click here for more information.

I don't know why MS forces you to use the newest VPC version, but you can take the virtual hard drive from the XP Mode installation and pop it into VPC 2007. The only hassle is getting the VPC network driver installed. It's not impossible, but it is a bit of a pain at first. Good to know for people that have processors without virtualization technology.
