    XP Mode in Windows 7 requires hardware-assisted virtualization intel VT or AMD-V technology based processors.

    Is there any Possibility to Emulate these Technology in Dual Core Processors without VT by using Software?

    Plz don't tell that i can use VMware bla bla.

    I m using VMware but i want to try XPmode by using Software emulated VT technolgies (Software that can use one core for emulation).

    Software emulated VT technolgies:
    the closest you can get is vmware - sorry.

    did some research and nope, it can't be done.

    derausgewanderte is right, closest thing is using VMware to run a virtual xp within win7. U will need a cpu supporting VT to run XPmode.

    You're beating a dead horse here. We've already told you this won't work. VT/AMD-V are technologies implemented at the processor level. You can't just go about emulating that. You'll either have to set up a more traditional VM using VMWare or VirtualBox, or just go get a new processor that does support hardware VT.
