    Hi everyone, I have a problem i am trying to figure out to no avail,so i am looking to you for some help. Here is the problem: I am trying to install a game that requires an older OS to get it to work. The game is Journeyman Project 3: Legacy of Time. It says that it was made for Windows 98 but if i remember correctly i had it working on Windows XP. So I am looking for a link i can download and create a bootable disk for Windows XP. Now i am unsure if i need to put it on a DVD or a cd. I need the disk for the virtualBox application. If someone could walk me through this step by step it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Why download a non-supported version, when there is a torrent of XP SP3:confused: that is currently supported until April next year!

    Any benefit to having vl versions? Easier to activate maybe?

    Yes it is easier with the right product key, and with VL versions, you don't need to activate, it's already pre-activated.

    I am interested, if you don't mind pointing me in the right direction.

    I know how to fetch the ISO's I will need but AKAIK the VL keys are limited to a preset amount of activations.

    UPDATE

    I found some keys, will test them.

    I always advise against VLK over OEM:SLP, VLK keys can and do get blacklisted. Lost count of the number of machines I have converted to OEM:SLP from VLK for exactly that reason.

    Of course. That's what I meant by ''Corporate Edition''. Devil's own release, FCKGW - we all know what happened to it.

    I have used 2 VL keys for about 5+ years, one was given to me, and the other I found on the net. Both are yet to be blacklisted by MS.
