Laptop came with Win 7. I need to refer to not-so-recent emails. What are the options? Re-format hard drive under Win 7 and re-install XP? Not for me! Solution? Zinstall. It takes a while to set up, but once it's done, it's brilliant. Zinstall team - you have a great product!

I've been using Windows XP for many years, and I like the look and feel of it.  While I'm sure I could get used to Windows 7 after some time, my big issue is that I have 7 or so years of archived emails under Outlook Express, and I need to refer to these from time to time.  Windows 7 does not support Outlook Express, and the effort of exporting all those archived boxes to Windows Live Mail is far too much. 

I have a new laptop for traveling - it came with Windows 7 Home Premium installed. On my travels I will need to refer to recent and not-so-recent emails.

What are the options?  Reformat my hard drive under Windows 7 Home Premium and re-install Windows XP?  Not for me!  Install a Windows XP partition under Windows 7?  Doesn't work unless you have Windows 7 Professional edition!!

Solution?  Zinstall.  It takes a while to set up, but once it's done, it's brilliant. I had a problem with the installation - turned out to be a missing file, and it was quickly rectified in a live remote session.  When I needed to re-install Zinstall and the problem recurred, the technicians emailed instructions on where to find the missing file and where to place it.

Thanks to the Zinstall team - you have a great product.
