    Hello Mike,

    XP Mode is indeed a virtual machine, distributed by Microsoft in the form of VHD (Microsoft virtual disk). The VHD is licensed for use only on a computer running at least one of the following editions of Windows 7: Windows 7 Professional, Windows Ultimate or Windows Enterprise.

    XP mode requires hardware virtualization feature to run. This CPU feature virtualization is not supported by Parallels Desktop, so XP mode will not run inside a virtual machine.

    Regards,
    Max

    Omen, but you can install WinXP in another Virtual Machine if this application is critical for you and.

    Have you tried running in 'compatibility mode', also running as administrator?
