I got mdg laptop/pc having Intel core 2 duo processor inside, and Windows 7 professional 32-bit o/s on it, so i want to use windows XP Mode on this Laptop, i already read a lot on microsoft site & tried many things no success at all.I don't have special type VT compatable processor in my pc/laptop, but both are having win 7 pro.

    i tried both of this patches unable to install
    Windows6.1-KB977206-x86.msu & Windows6.1-KB977206-x64.msu

    So if you can let me know from where i have to start from the begining then i will give a try.

    Now i just stick to my laptop, on my laptop Win xp mode is working fine, and resion to instal this mode is to get work my old printer & web cam. both of the i install in win xp mode still this things are not working, so i like to know how the printer (old canon printer) & webcam (old Lebeca webcam)get work on this.

    is there any more things i have to install to get this things work,.

    For sure both are in working condition, still i am using by installing their drivers on my old Win XP PC, so webcam & Printer are in working condition,. but i want to use them in Win XP Mode on Windows 7 Pro system.

    Please let me know is there any thing else i am missing on my Laptop to get this things in work
