Subject description: Running a Virtual XP
 

I'm curious,

I installed XP on 4 gig img file, boots and runs on Qemu ok. I was just toying around with it really. Does anyone have XP set up to do anything at all?

I just ran it for spits and giggles but I don't really have a use for it past the spits. I have win 7 on another partition but rarely ever boot that either.

Thought maybe someone else might have used it before, playing around with old win or DOS software would be about it for me.
Other wise I would just use Hirens boot cd

Just wondering..... Thanks

In the early 2000's Cisco made bunch of routers that you managed via an http interface. It was dependent upon IE and that goofy MS Java Virtual Machine. No other browser/java combination would work with them.

So now I have an XPP SP2 VM sitting around somewhere with IE6, and the last version of the MS JVM, just so I can login to those particular series of routers when I encounter them ..

For slapping together a video Movie Maker for the XP remains the quickest and easiest application. You can't do anything fancy, and it can use clips with only a couple of formats (or converted to those) but what it automatically did was separate the source clip into parts. [I think it used a change in overall luminosity to determine where one part ended and another began; but as indicated, the separations were under the programs control]. The parts showed up in one panel. You dragged the ones you wanted to wherever you wanted them on the time-line-panel. They could also be deleted from the time-line. Only what remained on the time-line was rendered into your final product. Movie Maker only runs under XP.

More flexible was the combination VirtualDub and CutAssist. VirtualDub, which runs under both Wine and Windows, works like Avidemux in that you mark the beginning and end points of each part of a clip you want to use (or delete). But CutAssist only worked under Windows*. It functioned as a front-end to VirtualDub and enabled you to create a 'play-list' of all the parts you wanted to save or delete, generating the final product using that list.

p.s. I wasn't certain whether CutAssistant would work under Window 7 (& above?). So I booted into Windows 7 and set it up. It opened via terminal but reported some error, But I had forgotten to transfer any vids to the Windows' partition. Embarassed So, that's as far a I got. But while configuring Preference to find the VirtualDub executable, I was surprised to discover that it could also be lined to Avidemux and so serve as a front end for it.

Because of all the plugins and filters which have been created for VirtualDub, it remains one of the most configurable and versatile video editors. But, without CutAssistant, workflow using VirtualDub is seriously hampered.

I use WinXP every day in a virtualbox VM for work.

We have custom built windows software that won't run on modern WinOS (the software creator claims, but I did get it to work in a win7 VM).

It provides a perfect platform to have a hardware-less solution for running WinXP but can be run on new hardware.

FWIW I run Carolina VG as the host system, which is used for getting online, picture editing etc, and the XP VM for sales and ordering.

I have just started the process of setting up a new machine to run another instance of XP VM which will run Xenial64 as the host, so I'm looking forward to seeing how well that will pan out.

I thought about whipping out my old bbs software just to play with it. Thought that might be fun to look back at. I think it was 95ish when all the locals started to shut down. Ah the memories of waiting days to get crappy porn picks. Smile

....I digress

Thanks for the input!
