  1. Setup virtual PC / vmware and install an XP image
  2. alright can you like guide me through on how to do that exactly? iv never messed with vms before lol
  3. i was reading up and it looks like vb6 will work in xp mode of win7, so can i just switch to xp mode, install it and just run it in the mode whenever i need to use it?
  4. I had an issue with another program when the install failed win popped up on it's own and asked me if I wanted to install in compatibility mode and let me pic the os i wanted back several versions actually. When that failed i got yet another menu letting me pick setting as basic as 256 color, which I haven't seen since dos programs.

    My point is just try the install and win7 will walk you through it.
