Hello, I am getting a new PC with W 7 but still need to use Money and other non 64 bit programs which are now out of date. If my old PC has XP can I still use the Virtual add on without another XP licence? How can I take it across?

7 is very good at running older software. Install the software. Before you run it you need to go to the .exe file and right click on it. Choose Properties, compatibility tab, compatibility mode and run as XP.

If that doesn’t work you can always run it on a virtual machine.

Just get the VirtualBox, all the other free virtualization programs are a joke in comparison.
