Windows XP Mode for Windows 7


Designed for Small and Medium Businesses


Windows XP Mode was designed for the small and medium business user who
doesn’t have a lot of resources to spend on IT or on revamping important software.
Windows XP Mode extends the lifecycle of many older Windows XP applications
to continue providing business value.

Once you install these applications directly in your Windows XP Mode environment,
they will be published to your Windows 7 desktop.

With just one click, the business user can run many Windows XP applications from
a Windows 7 desktop just as if it were a Windows 7 application. There’s no need to
re-train the user, or to re-learn the application.
