IPX Windows 7

I have third party software that requires the IPX protocol. Is there a way to use the IPX protocol with Windows 7?  

Thanks.

IPX is no longer available from Microsoft for Windows Vista and Windows 7 - see the response here by a Microsoft Employee.

Aside from using "XP Mode" or Virtual PC containing Windows XP with IPX/SPX, then I'm pretty confident the answer is "no"!

seems the answer already provided, IPX is not supported in Windows 7
you will need to install XP Mode or VPC 2007 to work around it
