How to Install XP Drivers in Vista

Now a days most of the computer are shipped with Windows VISTA (any version), but we can’t deny the truth that still today most of the people prefer Windows XP to Vista. Even I believe that XP is more than enough for any home user, and for any personal computer. Due to software differences, Windows XP drivers are not directly compatible with Windows Vista. This technical challenge can be overcome if you install Windows XP drivers in Vista so that your old XP devices work with the new operating system.

Steps to Install XP Drivers in Vista

1. Download the respective installer package for the driver you wish to install on Windows Vista.

2. Right click on the installer package for the driver.

3. Click "Properties" from the pop-up menu. A preferences window will appear on the screen.

4. Click the tab that reads "Compatibility."

5. Click the check box next to "Run this progam in compatibility mode for"

6. Select "Windows XP" from the drop-down menu and press the "OK" button to apply the changes and close the window.

7. Install XP drivers in Vista. Double-click the XP driver's installer package. Windows Vista will now open the driver in Vista Compatibility Mode. The Windows Vista operating system will tell the XP driver that it is running on a Windows XP machine, thus allowing the installation process to continue where it would otherwise have stopped.
