Maybe this version will work better. Currently Cyberlink DVD won't let me play a dvd through XP Mode. I like to pause and step forward to examine mistakes made in movies. Cyberlink has this function where Media Player doesn't. However Cyberlink runs very buggy on Vista and WIN 7.

I would not waste the money for virtual xp if you are going to move to Win 7. Me i have Vista 32 home premium and will stick with it.

 Depending on what version of Win7 you get, you don't necessairly have to pay for it.

From what i have read you have to atleast buy pro (cost more) to use Virtule xp. I have no need for PRO and if a program won't run on win 7 home premium i would'nt use it. Me myself i will not buy win 7 unless i get a new computer in a couple years.

Wah, my Core 2 T5500 doesn't support it. :(

 When I was using it, I noticed that there was a fair bit of lag. And no, I wasn't gaming. Even with dedicating a core and 2GB of RAM to it to see if that'd make a difference, it didn't...
