Windows 7 XP Mode and Games Tags: Windows 7 Games Windows XP Last response: March 30, 2012 7:50 PM in Windows 7 Share bagwoli March 30, 2012 6:58:01 PM Would most games from the past 4 years play on Win 7? More specifically, is it worth getting Win x Pro to run XP mode to run those games? Regards, Bill More about : windows mode games Chainzsaw a b $ Windows 7 March 30, 2012 7:16:38 PM Hello, Yes most games from the past 4 years should run in windows 7. If you would like you could get yourself Windows 7 Professional which you can download Windows XP mode and run games/programs inside of "Windows XP" mode. J_E_D_70 March 30, 2012 7:21:32 PM You certainly can do that but I don't know of anyone who has had an issue with games of that vintage running on Win 7. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer dechy March 30, 2012 7:50:19 PM XP Mode is NOT made for 3D gaming whatsoever; even games with little graphic requirements like D2X / WC3 run like CRAP in XP Mode. If you find a game that won't work using compatibility mode (properties of the executable) to force XP/Vista/etc... then you're better off dual-booting than using XP Mode. Can't find your answer ?
