Hello Everyone,
I just bought a brand new windows 8 pro computer. But, I need to run a windows 7 virtual machine in it for legacy applications. I don't want to buy a seperate windows 7 license.

Any tips or ideas?

Thanks,
Ben

you need to have a license for that virtual installation; it doesn't work like XP mode did earlier

Seth2470 is right a separate Windows 7 license is needed to run Windows 7 in a virtual machine.
