Date: Tue, 8 Apr 2014 13:15:21 -0400 Window's 7 system has XP-Mode and I've used it before, but it was
easier for me to run the old XP system until it died. If you do run programs
in XP-Mode, realize that you need to have a separate anti-virus installation
for XP-Mode. Your anti-virus and any other protection you may have for
Windows 7 will not protect the computer when it's running in a virtual mode.
When I found a work around for the Nikon software problem, I no longer
needed the XP system or XP-Mode.

W7 Pro includes "XP Mode," which is essentially a XP virtual computer. It's
probably just as vulnerable to attack as the XP PC, but it will only be
running while you are using the XP program and the rest of the time the
system will be W7.
