Default What software

My plan was to get planet 2000 and run it on my very old laptop i have had lurking in the loft for years, which runs xp. The laptop runs so slow so i have not got a new laptop with my new phone contract, but it runs with windows 7.What is my best bet now, i would just like to keep windows 7 and to beable to run the software with it.

what type of windows 7? home, pro, ultimate? windows 7 has thing called xp mode, so you could run your software from it. or just install xp and make it dualboot

Don't think Planet will run in "XP Mode"

Best bet, is to partition the hard drive, install XP on the partition, and make it a dual boot machine - normal for Win7, but with the option to boot as XP for Planet.

You could also run XP as a virtual machine within Win7, but this hasn't proven to be as stable as a dual boot option.

What's the make and model of the old laptop? I have a big box of laptop parts so might be able to ramp up the memory for you.
