I am assuming that if I need to go in and tell it to run in XP mode that that software would not run in Home Premium. Therefore I am also assuming that if I can install software and it runs without me telling it to run in XP mode, then it should be fine in Home Premium. Please correct me if I am wrong or if I am on the right track here. Thanks a lot!
First hi and welcome to sevenforums
Win 7 home premium does not run VIRTUAL xp mode, but will run anything in xp compatibility mode. the only time you would use compat mode is if software is older and not compatible in win 7. to see it all you have to do is right click any exe file and you will see the compatibility tab
