Windows 7: Music Making in XP Mode (Acer Laptop)

Music Making in XP Mode (Acer Laptop)

My laptop has hardware support for Win 7 only, so I opted for VirtualBox & installed XP Mode as guest operating system. I loaded softwares meant for Win XP like Guitar FX Box 2.6. But I am unable to set it up properly. It does not seem to independently capture the mic/line in as host OS keeps on playing the input sound in the background. There are issued of unable to select WDM streaming (getting error opening input device). Can anyone shed some light on how I can use XP Mode in my Win 7 laptop to play my guitar/music editing software effectively?

You could try to install them in 7 and run in compatibility mode. It'll run faster then in VBox, especially with only 2 GB RAM.

Thanks for the suggestion, by the way if I want to run some software in win xp (under win 7 host laptop), can I install Direct X & ASIO as required by the softwares? Will these software harm the host os?
