Will software that work’s on windows xp now work on the new windows?
Do you mean the new Windows Vista or Windows XP Service Pack 3? Either one, your existing software should all work.
most of it should. legacy programs designed for win98 and before…maybe. havent done much research into this yet.
Well, there will always be some odd software packages that won’t work with a new release (new release being Vista, in this case), but by design, all software that worked with XP should work with Vista.
