The software is propietory and written for a scientific application: cannot be upgraded without paying someone to write the whole thing again.

All the responses are correct but ,I would not recomend installing xp over a system that was built for 7 64bit ,If you do some searching around and take your time you will find a win 7 32 bit machine premade ready to go and will run anything you throw at it

Also 64 bit will do the same thing /If you friends system wasn't able to utalize the 32 bit programs then thiere is another issue with his machine or the software you use simple is out of date

Most of the time if you right click and run as Administrator all programs will be forced to work off of compatability mode thus anything you throw at it 32 to or higher will work

You have to trust some of this information because everyone has basicly posted the same response

Then a good solution for you might be to set up a dual-boot system running both W7 and XP
Dual Boot Installation with Windows 7 and XP
Or set up a Virtual machine and run XP in that
Windows Virtual PC - Create Virtual Machine

There is no reason to let that one program make you live in the shadows!

Yes the Dual boot with XP would be a good choice, XP mode is only available on Professional, Enterprise, and Ultimate.
