There is an offering today that has some mention of XP and EOL in April 2014. I never download any of the offerings but usually check everyday ... sometimes there are some good offerings but usually someone will post about a free or several free alternatives that are just as good ... without having to go through all the hoops and registration stuff.
Giveaway of the Day
Click on the yellow-gold box "Proceed to Download Page"
Today the giveaway is Paragon Virtualization Manager 14 Compact (English). This is their description ...
"March 13, 2014
Still need to run Windows XP as a virtual machine? Paragon’s Virtualization Manager is the solution. Microsoft discontinues Windows XP support by the 8th of April, which exposes your XP system to serious security threats. Use Paragon Virtualization Manager 14 Compact to save your Windows XP and run it as a virtual machine inside a new Windows 8.
* Use several operating systems on your PC;
* Create a virtual clone of your old PC before migrating to a new computer. Programs, files and user
settings are transferred automatically with zero user downtime. Take advantage of an up-to-date
powerful computer, while still having access to your favorite applications from your old PC;
* Even if you moved from PC to Mac, you can continue using your Windows as a virtual machine on
a new Mac;
* Evaluate any third-party software without threats to your PC. Run all new programs in a virtual
environment before installing them to the main OS.
If you scroll to the bottom, there are 15 comments so far as I post this, should be many more through the day. There is some XP discussion going on and maybe someone here want to try the offering.
May be some mention of other programs as the day goes on.
Additional ... a few more comments have been posted and this may be a good program to try out ... Paragon is a good name and a few have said the "registration part" went smooth ... that seems to always be a complaint with some of the daily offerings ... registration doesn't work or is a hassle.
