The gold version of Windows XP Mode for Windows 7 is now available for download directly from Microsoft. With Windows XP Mode RTM, the Redmond company is delivering an extra feature to Windows 7, designed to enhance the operating system and deliver a backward compatibility boost as far as legacy XP applications go. With XP Mode the software giant is essentially making available a free copy of Windows XP SP3, which has to be run inside a virtual machine in select Windows 7 SKUs.

In this regard, Microsoft released to the general public not just Windows XP Mode, but also the virtualization solution designed to allow end users to run the guest operating system inside a virtual machine. Windows XP Mode and Windows Virtual PC RTM are simply inseparable. Both solutions are set up to integrate seamlessly with the Professional, Enterprise and ultimate editions of Windows 7, and both are available as free downloads from Microsoft.

Windows XP Mode and Windows Virtual PC are offered for both the 32-bit and the 64-bit of the Windows 7 editions mentioned above and in a variety of languages, in accordance with the localization flavors of the latest Windows client. End users will find that in certain scenarios the Windows 7 compatibility features do not help when attempting to run legacy applications. This is where Windows XP Mode comes in. Customers can install XP only compatible apps in the free virtualized copy of XP SP3 (XP Mode) and then access and run the programs from the Windows 7 desktop.
