Windows XP x64 compatibility mode

Is it possible to somehow get the compatibility mode emulating Win XP x64 or Win Server 2003 x64 for Win7?

XP Mode is an image of 32 bit XP. No others are available. To run 64 bit XP or Server 2003 (or any other OS) you would need a legal copy of the OS and run it under VirtualPC or some other virtualizer program.

You possibly misunderstood me. I am not talking about the Virtual PC XP Mode, but about compatibility mode for running applications.

Are you trying to run a 64 bit program designed for 64 bit XP or server 2003?
It would help if you could describe exactly what you are trying to do.

Yes, the 32-bit version of the software runs well under Win2000 Compatibility mode (and under XP compatibility mode but with UAC prompt). The software does not run without compatibility mode. I wonder if there a way to run a 64-bit version of the same software?

May be such mode exists under Win8?
