Bio

What I love most about being an IT Pro is educating and enlightening the folks that attend my events. To see them lighten up when I talk about the new technologies that is being presented, it brings me satisfaction in my role. I like to talk face-to-face with our customers and work with them towards finding problems and solutions.

Description

In this session, Microsoft's own Blain Barton will explore the Windows 7 add-on feature known as "XP Mode".

 

Although this is not an official hands-on lab In this hands on lab, you may bring your Windows 7 Machine (Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate only) and Blain will walk you through the process of setting up windows XP mode and getting it working on your computer.  In order for XP-Mode to work, your computer must have hardware virtualization built in.   We will have a DVD with all the files you need so you just need to bring your Windows 7 LAPTOP.  (Laptops only please). 

 

Note: We are unable to set up tables or power in this room to support this as a "hands-on" lab.  So get here early for a seat near power, or with a full battery if you want to "do" instead of "watch".
