Hello, I'm thinking to install Windows 7 Ultimate x64.
I know that I can enable (or install) Windows XP Mode x32 inside Windows 7 x32,
I know that I can enable (or install) Windows XP Mode x64 inside Windows 7 x64,
but can I enable (or install) Windows XP Mode x32 inside Windows 7 x64?
In case that the answer was not, I want to know if I can create a virtual machine an then install in it my Windows XP x32 in order to can run inside it all my x32 (and x16) applications and games.
Thanks a lot fot the answer

I believe you can alway do a 32 in a 64 and never a 64 in a 32. hence the X86 file for the link between the two and almost 64 bit programs. So yes it can be done. now con you do it. I think so.

XP Mode in only intended for running older Applications. Most of your games should run just fine in Windows 7. If you have any problems with your games, try using "Compatility mode".

Absolutely - I run 32-bit XP mode in my 64-bit copy of Windows 7 Ultimate.

I'm actually not so sure that there's a x64 version of XP available for Windows 7 - at least not one whose license is included with the Win7 license the way the 32-bit XP mode license is.
