Anywhere else to get "windows xp mode" than microsoft? They wanted to install some genuine advantage crap and I am not doing that.
Here's the link I was using: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/vir.../download.aspx

However if you give us some more information on your application that is 32 bit only we may be able to get it running on a 64bit machine. If the application involves complex 3D graphics and really doesn't like 64bit systems (GTA4 springs to mind here), Virtualization isn't for you.
remember you need to have a copy of Windows 7/XP to install in the VM.
On second thoughts I agree with Darician on using XP Mode.
Thanks a bunch! So far the XP installation is running smoothly and this software appears amazing considering its free.
edit: Is it possible to copy files to the .vdi virtual hard drive that the guest OS uses? Right now I have to use email to transfer files.
edit2: crap crap crap! This is not working, I can't access USB devices in the VM... Also I can't even access the CD/DVD drive which is very strange, but doesn't really matter I guess. I NEED USB support like ASAP had this phone for 2 weeks and still not flashed, really wanted to get this done today please help!
edit3: Figured it out, only the closed-source edition has USB support... going to see if I can find a torrent I guess.
edit4: Installing XP with VMWare Workstation 7, will let you know how if it works
edit5: It worked! Optical Drives and USB support required no tinkering, it Just Worked which is what I like. Thanks guys.
