Question by : Does Windows 7 starter have windows xx compatibility mode?
I’m planning to buy a netbook (usually has a win7 starter preinstalled within)
I want to play old games like RA2- Yuri’s R , SC2, B. Realms etc.. and I heard that win 7 starter has no “Windows Xp mode”.
I’ve done a trick on my win XP desktop PC before to enable the system to run those programs compatible of older window versions. – (right click exe file>properties>under compatibility tab> set to: win98/me compatible)
I just want to ask if I can do the “compatibility trick” on win7 STARTER again just like what I did on xp before?
if not, Are there alternative ways to play those old games under win7starter ?
What is the difference between “windows xp mode” and “windows xx compatibility mode” ?
Thanks in advance

XP mode is a virutal PC session within Windows 7 where the software is actually running in XP. Compatibility mode is where the OS “lies” to the application to make it think it is running in XP.
All versions have the compatibility mode. Only Professional and above have XP mode.
