Windows XP mode no more

Today I discovered an odd problem. I wanted to make one last check of my virtual XP-machine after finally having completed migrating all info out of it, before shutting it down and removing it.

As it turned out, it wasn’t possible to even launch it any more. The error message stated lack of hardware support for virtualization, which simply cannot be the case since it’s been working great for many years. And the only thing I can think has happened since last time used are either the latest round of security updates, or .Net Framework 4.7

But I won’t spend any more time on troubleshooting it, since I did after all finish the migration, and so I won’t need the XP-machine any more. So I’m just writing this up as a memory note of what happened and have already completely uninstalled the OS support for Windows XP Mode on the Windows 7 machine.

Next up will be migrating of Outlook, which isn’t just as simple as it sounds…
