    If XP can *really* work within 7 for some of the old programs (just read it elsewhere), can I now get my favorite Outlook Express into my 7 Ultimate? How? I HATE Windows Live!

    Burt Hi and welcome


    It sure can. If you hardware supports the VM (XP mode). Are you running win 7 32 or 64bit? Yes OE will run though you may have some minor problems. I is do-able.

    Just remember it is going to use system resources, etc, just to get OE.



    Good Luck

    Ken...MS just removed the hardware virtualization requirement for Virtual PC. Any CPU will work.

    Google XP Mode, one of the results will lead you there. Once there download the XP mode appropriate for your system and the modified Virtual PC msu app, install in that order and once up and running, OE 6.0 awaits in all it's ancient glory.

    Try FREE Mozilla's Thunderbird which is very much like Outlook Express.

    Outlook Express is going bye bye, you would do well to start looking for an alternative and save yourself some pain down the road.

    Why are we all hung up about what Micro$oft supports for machine virtualization? Have a look at Sun's VirtualBox. It runs on a Windows 7 host and can support multiple guests of various OS.
