    I have been thinking about purchasing a new computer. All my current software is 32 bit stuff, and I would like to contiune to use most of it for a while ,but still provide for the future use of 64 bit software as it comes onto the market. I understand from Microsoft's product statements that it is possible to download a plug-in from its web site for the Microsoft 7 Pro OS (I think they call it a virtual XP Mode.) that would give my new PC a 32 bit capablity in addition to the "standard" 64 bit capabilty. QUESTION: Has anyone tried downloading and using the XP mode? IF SO, What do you think of it, and what issues must I be concerned about?

    Respectfully,

    Chuck

    Chuck,

    I'm doing exactly that. Most everything works in 64 bit mode. For those few "old" programs that I refuse to give up I use in XP mode. Not the most convenient solution but the virtual mode stays up until you shut it down and you keep using Win 7 in 64 bit mode.
