    Default VMLite - An alternative XP Mode is available

    See some screenshots here:
    Demo

    Vmlite Download:
    Download - VMLite Products

    A good Windows XP Mode alternative, for all Windows 7 users who not have this feature.

    It looks promising, thank you
    I asked some months ago fro a beta version but I forgot to install it
    And it doesn't need a CPU which supports hardware virtualization.

    Very good catch!

    I have tested this and it works fine XP pro service pack 3 so not many updates. It took me just under an hour to set up and install a few updates required like IE 8.
    Once installed I do suggest to turn up the ram a little and let it take control of 2 CPU's if you have that option and also give it more GPU memory.

    registration took a while due to waiting for an e-mail to activate account. Xp passed validation not that I suspected it not too

    All in all a good bit of software and free thanks for the link Max

    I recommend only a thing, you can't run VMLite inside another vm.

    Except this, it's just wonderful.

    However, I think that official Windows XP Mode is better as performances, because Windows XP Mode uses hardware virtualization technology.

    I would appreciate some comparation about.

    But will you be able to use native XP mode applications alongside Win7 apps using VMLite?

    VMLite supports Intel VT & AMD V features, but it doesn't require such feature.
