I am purchasing a new PC.

My main client requires that I use Visual Studio .Net 2003 to support their applications at this time.

Does anyone have experience running Visual Studio .Net 2003 work in XP Mode?  Does it work well?  Are there glitches?

We will be running Visual Studio .Net 2003 with Crystal Reports XI R2.

While it should run on 7 in XP Mode, it is unsupported. On the whole it should work ok, although i have seen a few intermittent issues reported.

Any chance you could run it on an XP VM instead?

Yes, I can run it on an XP VM.

Would an XP VM be an exact match for running it in XP?  Or are there glitches with that sometimes?

No, it should be just as if you were running natively.
