Windows XP Mode Release Candidate launched

Posted on Wednesday, August 05 2009 @ 14:25:40 CEST by

Microsoft rolled out the release candidate of Windows XP Mode, you can find all the details and a link to the download at the Windows Blog.
As you may know, Windows XP Mode is specially designed for small and medium-sized businesses to help ease the migration process to Windows 7 by providing additional compatibility for their older productivity applications. The newly updated Windows XP Mode now works with the RC and RTM versions of the Windows 7 Professional, Ultimate and Enterprise SKUs.
New features in the Windows XP Mode RC:
  • You can now attach USB devices to Windows XP Mode applications directly from the Windows 7 task-bar. This means your USB devices, such as printers and flash drives, are available to applications running in Windows XP Mode, without the need to go into full screen mode.

  • You can now access Windows XP Mode applications with a “jump-list”. Right click on the Windows XP Mode applications from the Windows 7 task bar to select and open most recently used files.

  • You now have the flexibility of customizing where Windows XP Mode differencing disk files are stored.

  • You can now disable drive sharing between Windows XP Mode and Windows 7 if you do not need that feature.

  • The initial setup now includes a new user tutorial about how to use Windows XP Mode.
