    Hi together!

    I got a general question about the XP Mode capabilities.

    What I actually have to do is to create some special applications using a Win7 OS while those apps also have to be used on Windows XP OS.

    Since I am not sure if everything that works well on Win7 would also work on Windows XP I was thinking to use the XP Mode for that. Which means at least I would like to run some application test for Windows XP applications on my XP Mode.

    What do you think about that? Is that possible? Would I see any mistakes or troubles which would appear on Windows XP OS on my XP mode, too?

    Thank you a lot in advance for any answers!

    Yes, you could do as you describe with XP mode.

    Hi sygnus21,

    thank you for this answer and the link. That's where I already was looking for such answers...

    I wonder what is the difference between a XP Mode and an usual VM Ware Work Station where I could also use my Windows XP?

    That I can't answer as i'm not all that familiar with VM's. I've got XP Mode with Virtual PC on my machine but rarely use it. I'm sure someone here will answer that quetion for you.

    Peace

    Hello Suriname,

    You can use the tutorial below to create an elevated shortcut of the program that can be used to run at startup without getting a UAC prompt in administrator accounts.
