Can I use Windows 7 software with Windows 8?
By Rick Maybury7:00AM GMT 11 Mar 2013
A friend has just purchased a Windows 8 laptop, but cannot now afford to purchase updated versions of all the software she uses. I know that W7 had a facility called Virtual PC, whereby you could partition your hard-drive and load an alternative operating system but I can’t find out if this is available in W8. Is there a Virtual PC solution for W8? Following on from this, can you access data files on partitions other than the one that you have booted-up from?

New versions of Windows often cause problems with older applications but this time around there have been fewer casualties. Before your friend gets too involved with Virtual PCs and partitions she should check the Windows Compatibility centre (http://goo.gl/uAvZo), which has a large and growing database of products and where available, links to patches and upgrades.
