Might be good for some Squirrel,but why would someone want 95 on an xp machine i dont know.

Got to agree with skidzy :-) why would you want to run Win 95? I mean it is not even USB compatible!

but hey good for you I hope you have many years of really exciting computing from your achievements :-(

fair point :-)

If Windows 95 on XP machine seems a pointless exercise, then how about Windows 3.1 on a Windows Vista Machine. No....hang-on, that would be an improvement that might prove useful!!!

The reason I am running Win 95 on an XP machine is because, some of the hardware I work with can only be programed by applications running under Win 95, and, howmany 'new' Win 95 machines are there out there???

Fasinating things these computer things!

Why not use Win98? It's everything 95 compatible.

I am on an iMac. I have Parallels installed and VM's of W98, XP, Vista and Fedora.

The Vista and XP can run in "Coherence" mode which basically allows them to run seemlessly with OS X. I can exchange files between them and I can have a graphics prigram running in OS X and click to a game running in XP.

This knocks spots off of any other Virtual Machine software I have used. The only downside currently is Parallels poor support for 3D games - although this will soon be remedied.
