|SOLVED !!! (was : Running EMU41 16-Bit MS-DOS Programs on new 64-Bit Windows 7 Laptop)|

In a recent Thread (which seems to have vanished somewhere, and by the way, WHERE ... ???) I recently reported my inability to run EMU41 on my new Windows 7 64-Bit laptop.
Thanks to information obtained here and there - including from this Forum (thanks again to you my Friends) I simply purchased the (expensive) Windows 7 PRO upgrade to my former "Family" Windows 7 Software. I then downloaded from the Internet the (free) "Windows Virtual PC" software which enables to run under "Windows XP Mode".
Under this "Windows (virtual) XP" mode, I was then able to run EXACTLY AS BEFORE ON MY FORMER WINDOWS AND VISTA laptops, both EMU41 and HrastProgrammer data exchange software between HP48GX/49G and laptop without any problem through my USB converter.
For my applications, i.e. running EMU41 as well as both way data exchange between Calculators and Laptop, I do not even need anything else. Therefore, although I downloaded a trial copy of the "Tao ExDOS 2009 Trial Version", I am not planning to register and use it all because it seems no longer necessary to me .... unless one of you recommends it for some reason (no longer immediately obvious to me).
Thanks again for the nice Info I could find once again on our HP Museum Forum.
Meanwhile, Best Regards to you all from Sunny Mauritius Island.
