Back on topic, I was under the impression companies with legacy hardware simply mirrored from a clean install whenever an XP box went south. At least, that's the case I heard with a foodstuff manufacturer here.

That's what my IT guys do for the one machine that is still running XP here in the lab. We have one C12+ chromatograph that the software has to run on XP. We have basically an image of a clean install with said software, and a backup of the data for it. the upgrade to the Chromatograph itself for a newer one with W7 software support is way to expensive!! Especially when the "old" machine and PC work just fine. Can't justify the expense.

Hi Geeve
Don't forget the possibilities of using an XP Virtual Machine.

In a Lab (essentially I hope a "static" position") a new W7 computer running an XP virtual machine would probably run your C12+ chromatograph without a problem.

Get one of your I.T guys to try it out. You can download the vm software for FREE.

That way you could keep the C12+ running AND benefit from later software on the machine such as Office 2010 etc which you could use at the same time the C12+ was being used --faster and more powerful modern computers could do this EASILY and computers are quite cheap currently. Best of both worlds.

An absolutely CLASSIC case for using an XP Virtual Machine.

A dedicated computer out in the field is another story however !!
