    I need a windows xp pro 64 bit download to use with win 7 (virtual xp mode), can I find it here. I got the license but never bothered to activate but now want to use some of my xp software while running win 7 pro. Can anyone help please it would be so much appreciated. I am not sure how it is done but from what I understand I had to have a win xp product key which I have, in order to do it.

    Windows 7 Virtual XP is 32bit only. AFAIK it cannot do 64bit at all. Note that if the host OS is 32bit or 64bit does not matter.

    Yeah, but she is going to make her own virtual xp x64 mode, she will need a 3rd party VM software though, cause Virtual PC only supports a x86 OS.

    VirtualBox or VMWare Player come to my mind...

    Once you said there is 32bit only I stopped looking for 64bit and downloaded it from Microsoft. I got it all done but I must say they have some messed up directions I couldn't make heads or tales of them. If you try to follow the directions given, you would die trying. Thanks for your information Carlos.
