My friend needs games for Win XP but my computer is Win 7.
1) How to determine games which downloaded from Win 7 are working in Win 7? 
2) Where to find out free games for Win XP?

Most all of the games I had with XP ran in 7. I can't remember for certain, but it seems like I didn't have any problem with XP games and Win7 computers. If you get a game and have problems, right click on the game icon, you should be able to change the compatibility mode from 7 to XP. It's been a few years so I'm not positive that's how to change compatibility, but pretty sure. Hope I didn't confuse things more... :crazy:

Only requirements are that your computer's processor allows virtualizaton.
