Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Hi there
the OP has Home Premium I think which is why I suggested using vmware player or vbox + a 32 bit W7 install as a complete VM.

XP mode as others have stated only works with Professional / Ultimate / Enterprise editions of W7.

I would recommend Oracle VirtualBox then. I have it installed with the following clients (just wanted to see if they would work).

Windows 98SE
Windows XP Pro
Ubuntu Linux 10
Linux Mint
Windows 7 Ultimate X86

OS: Win 7 64bit. Is it generally not a problem to choose to install a piece of 32bit software outside the win 7 default program folder for 32bit software? Or is 32bit software only supposed to be running flawlessly, if installed in that default 32bit folder? Thanks.
