Is there a way to install and run a 32-bit XP installer in Win 7 Home Premium? I get a message that it's incompatible. I know the Win 7 Pro version has XP mode but Home Premium doesn't.

You might try an alternative (non Microsoft) virtual machine, like Virtual Box. I dont know if it will give you a free version of XP like the 7-Pro version does.

There may be other work arounds. Do you have a specific issue, or just want XP
