windows 10 should have the same features windows 8 does where you just have to set the compatibility in the program properties by right clicking on it and selecting properties and then the compatibility tab. that will let you run things in xp mode
but this page would be helpful if you are trying to run the xp virtual machine on windows 10. it has a section on how to run it in both win 7 and below that instructions for win 10
are they really i thought you could get an old xp disk for under 50 on ebay but i havent looked recently. probably cheaper to buy an old xp computer at a thrift shop or craigslist and see if it has the product key on the bottom. most of the dell or hp had a sticker with it.
I would tend to agree with you. I think the xp mode was a patch thing for win 7 when it wouldnt run xp programs. they did away with it in win 8 because they didnt think they needed it. they got the compatibility mode a little bit better. for win 10 they will just say xp is no longer supported if it doesnt work.
what exactly do you need to run under it ?
got you. ill tell you at this point its probably cheaper and easier to keep an old xp computer around just to run that stuff on.
give it a shot.
