Capturing Applications on Windows XP to run on Windows 7

Created: 12 Dec 2011 • Updated: 17 Sep 2015 | 2 comments

Is it possible to capture an application that runs on Windows XP that won't run on Windows 7 and than run that sreamed application on a Windows 7 machine?

Anu feedback would be greatly appreciated.

For most 32 bit applications this works very well.

Just look through the forums for people who use SWV to run IE6 on Windows 7.

Give it a try and see how it works.

As a general rule, regardless of technology/product, if the application does not work when locally installed, virtualization is not likely to help you.  Virutalization allows for application-to-application compatibilty by isolating applications (e.g. be able to run a product with two different versions side-by-side).  There may be tricks to certain applications that you can employ such as shims and various isolation options but virtualization is not targeted as an application-to-OS compatibility solution
