We have an old XP computer that has a lot of complicated programs installed on it, but the hardware itself is starting to show signs of age.
We would like to create a virtual of it and run it as a virtual on a new Windows 7 machine.
We're familiar with VMWare Desktop (that's free), and the VMWare utility to let's you create a virtual machine from a running machine.
What's the best way (free way?) to create a virtual of this old XP and run it in a virtual environment on a new Windows 7 box?
