- It looks like GPSL 2009 will take place in Topeka. I was offered a job at the Kaw Area Technical School, a post secondary technical school. I'll be teaching electronics while attending evening classes at KU for my doctorate. I'll post more information as I figure out the details.
Onwards and Upwards,
- If this is a 64 vs 32 bit problem, Win7 Pro and enterprise and Ultimate will
be equipped with a Windows Xp compatability mode that creates a full XP OS
in a virtual machine. I haven't checked out if this is available to RC
copies but, I believe the RC is an Ultimate copy so, ...
First check this page and download and run Securable unless you are
ABSOLUTELY sure your processor has hardware virtualization capability. There
are a surprising number of current chips that do NOT.
Then, assuming your CPU is VM capable, go here:
and download the XP Mode VM to install into Win7.
Probablilty of Liftwin running in this environment ... SWAG 99.9%. But a VM
is going to appear to Liftwin as a 32 bit OS.
Actually, I don't do this cause I'm coming from it from the other direction.
I have a Mac and virtualize all my Windows machines. So, I'm not going to
run a virtual Win7 and they try and run a 2 deep virtual machine inside Win7
to run XP Mode. Actually, wouldn't work since the virtualized Win7 is
running on a "virtual" chip. Or at least I think that is how things would
look to a 2 deep VM manager. So, ... good luck. But, should work ok.
