xp mode works fine on my machines. I guess you need to be smarter then the software sometimes.
I have Windows 7 64-bit professional on a gigabyte GA-H77-DS3H motherboard with 4gb of RAM, a 500 gb hard drive, and add-in pci-express parallel card and hard drive card Diamond modem. XP professional is on the old hard drive but it is not part of what I am trying to access. Exerything works independently, nothing can be shared or used in XP Mode. I sold the computer new to a customer and he needs to use the XP Mode for his printer and scanner.
Your answer sounds like one that Bill Gates would give instead of fixing the problem.
