*Microsoft provides common features like Virtual PC and Windows XP Mode
*There in no need for hardware assisted virtualization viz, it works without VT-x or AMD-v
*To running application from xp mode it offers seamless integration with host desktop.
*In the xp mode we can access host files.
*Control-C/V are using for coping files from other context between host and virtual machine.
*Xp modes supports the third party images like VMDK, VHD, VDI, HDD

Re: Without virtulization XPmode in windows 7

You can dowload wndows xp mode .
Download "Windows XP Mode":
Save the 7-.zip file
you can get it on official site.
Then extract the file \sources\xpm from the saved file with 7-zip.
And now extract file VirtualXPVHD from xpm with 7-zip and vhange the name of the file to VirtualXP.vhd
Now you use this vhd file as hard disk image in VirtualBox or VMware.
When you start this hard drive image file , you find the installation questions and you have to agree with the EULA .
