Well, I downloaded it from a torrent, of course I can't post it...

It works awesome.
In order to set it up you need two things. (four, if you want X86 and x64).
The other thing you need is "hardware virtualization", AFAIK all the Intel Core 2 Duos except the ones that have an E letter on the model have it. You must enable it in your BIOS. It's just a setting called Intel Virtualization (that of course must be enabled)
The four are on the torrent.

After you get the torrent you first install an update called Windows6.1-KB958559-x86.msu. It asks you for a reboot. After that, you then install the other package witch contains the "XP mode" thing. This installs, reboots again, and after you launch it it asks for a pwd, if you want automatic updates or not, and so on... Then it goes into a 10-15 min process of "Configuring for first time use". After that the machine boots.

You're now done.
In order to run a program there you have to install it there, so you open the machine, install it, and then you turn off the machine. It'll show on the start menu in Start > Windows Virtual PC > Virtual Xp installed apps (or something like that). You then just click it and after some secs it runs.

Everything is perfectly integrated! I got a tooltip balloon saying that I was not protected, and i Clicked it and it open the XP security center!

The apps run very nicely. Even some audio edition I've tested!

Let's see your eXPeriences with it.

You can post a torrent as long as it is not a warez. Andy already said this earlier.

I have Intel Core 2 Duo T5270 and it doesn't have VT.

If you're running Intel, refer to this table at Intel to see if your chip supports VT. All the Core Duos support VT except the ones that end in "E" like the Intel Core Duo processor T2300E .


Cya!

Actually Core Duo is not the same as Core 2 Duo. The low end models of the Core 2 (E4x00, E71/7200 etc) don't have VT.

Here you can see if your Intel processor supports Intel Virtualization Technology:

My E8500 supports it.

They all blow
The intel processors sure have the virtualisation (excluding low-end core2duo).
Problem is that almost none of the motherboards out there support it. It's an enterprise class feature that is only available on high-end/workstation/server motherboards (It was like that half a year ago, no idea if it's being integrated on new boards these days).

My E7200 doesn't support it... Sigh. Why the artificial limitations, Intel? Why?

Guess it will be one less feature I will be playing with... Grr...
