In windows xp mode

On a computer with a windows 7 O/S and with a 7 x 64 BIT C-P-U. If I run it in windows xp mode, Will A 32 bit driver for my -: 'mustek 1200 plus' Scanner work? As it will not work in the new 64 bit computer? I/E Will windows xp mode allow me to down load DRIVERS

  1. It should thou you'd only be able to use the scanner while in virtual XP mode which is where the drivers would load as I understand it at least. Yo do need a cpu that supports virtualization to use XP mode in case you didn't know.
  2. The problem as i see it is-: if I down load virtual XP mode will this automatily then kick the CPU in to 32 bit mode from 64 bit so that scanner will work with the software that i got with the scanner. ''it worked on my old 32bit PC''
    As there is no point in down loading virtual XP mode if the XP O/S is not going to some how see the drivers and use them.!
    Yes I did know about the need of a CPU that supports virtualization to use XP mode, and it needs to be turned on in the BIOS.
    Thank you for your reply.
