Microsoft has released polished code for desktop virtualization software to run legacy Windows XP applications on machines loaded with Windows 7.

The company plans to make Windows XP Mode available as a release candidate for testing, with finished product due at the time of the Windows 7 launch on October 22.

Changes to Windows XP Mode are designed to improve integration with Windows 7, so the two worlds share more interface and plumbing features than before.

You really need to check whether your processor can even handle hardware virtualization. Not all chips do. Steve Gibson's SecurAble [grc.com] is a quick free download that will let you know.
