Cant install xp mode in win7 ultimate 64 bit


Likes # 0

I have tried installing & uninstalling xp mode and vm 4 times with new downloads again and again to no avail. i have tried to install xp mode first and get the error 2203...I have installed vm first and then xp mode with the same result. Error 2203 on the web seems to be related to an installer problem yet I have installed many programs with no errors at all. I'm kinda out of ideas...anybody else have this problem, or maybe a solution? Thanks in advance

It could be either another program (Anti Virus?) is blocking the installation your user account's temp folder is set incorrectly or Windows Installer service is not set to disabled.

Check these and if you still have problems post back with what actions you have taken and your findings.

In case they are helpful there are several articles on installing XP Mode and there is a specific sequence to use. Have a look at these:

Item 1

Item 2
