I understand.
Comprehension isn't my forte neither.
TO reiterate, WIN XP MODE IS ONLY AVAILABLE FOR WIN 7 PRO or ULTIMATE. YOu don't get this feature in Win 7 HOME. You need a license of Win 7 PRO OR ULTIMATE before you can use XP MODE.

I like win xp too. I have it as a dual boot on my play computer. But I rarely use it since XP MODE does EVERYTHING that Win XP o/s does. I'm just trying to point out that for those using pro or ultimate, your suggestions to install a dual boot and then downloading drivers to create a virtual comm port isn't required.
Relax dude...I'm not out to flame you. I'm just trying to show that there's an alternate way of doing this w/o creasting two o/s and eating up all the hard drive space.
