Dear computer lady,
Is Windows XP Mode available for Windows 8?
Thank you in advance for your help.
Unfortunately, Microsoft has decided not to develop Windows XP mode for Windows 8.
Since extended support for XP will end in April 2014, it does not make sense for them to continue to develop it.
If you are using software or hardware that depends on XP mode to run, you are better off sticking with Windows 7 for now, but keep in mind that you will have to upgrade eventually and move to a newer software or hardware platform that will work with Windows 8 or even the next Microsoft operating system.
