Under Windows 7 Professional, you can readily install a Virtual Machine that will run Windows XP. This is referred to as "XP Mode". For more information and instructions on how to get it going, see Microsoft documentation (not wonderful) - just type "XP mode" into the Win7 "Help and Support" search box. For a rough idea what is going on, see the Wikipedia article on Windows Virtual PC. The straightforward package is not available under Windows 7 Home, though it looks from the Wikipedia article as if there may be a workaround if you have an XP licence available.

yraglac, sorry to hear it's not working for you. It's a while since I did this (and I haven't had to go back to it - the solution seems to be stable once you've set it up), but I seem to remember something similar while I was working out a solution. Try having a look at point 3 in my message above, dated 12-01-2011 01:44 PM - if I remember rightly that's what I had to do to fix a problem like this.
