Software for Virtualizing XP on Windows 7 Now Available

Microsoft Tuesday released software that uses virtualization to allow people to run applications in Windows 7 as if they are running in XP, making it easier for applications written for older versions of the OS to run on Windows 7.

Microsoft made the Windows XP Mode Release Candidate available for public download from the Microsoft Download Center, Microsoft Connect and on the Windows home page, the company said.

It also detailed some of the release's changes from earlier versions in a post on the Windows Team Blog. A release candidate in Microsoft's product-development cycle means the product is near completion.

The story is too old to be commented.
