Publisher's Description

Windows XP Setup Simulator is a program that teaches you how to install Windows XP, without having to worry you will mess up your hardware or software. It just simulates installing Windows XP as if it was the real setup. It reproduces every step exactly as it is in the real setup, and it does not restart your computer. This program can also be used as a guide for learning how to install Windows 2003, because the steps are very similar. The package also includes an e-book that explains every step of the Windows XP Setup and some other Windows XP Basics. You can also find the simulation with every step explained in several languages.

I'm keeping the same rating everyone else used because I think this is a false positive.

However, the latest Norton AC Corp (both Vista and XP versions) detect this as a Backdoor.Trojan and won't even allow it on my filesystem.

I am an educator who often finds herself working with home computer learners and presenting computing demonstrations. It takes quite a bit of preparation and time to demonstrate new installations to students with real computer equipment, so I am going to find this utility invaluable in my work.

I would give it an overall "5" if the spelling errors and a few minor bugs are tidied up. Aside from that tho. I give the developer top marks for their creativity!

Very nice app. Though I think it should be more like build 0.5. ;)

Lots of bugs.

Not a bad idea. I give it a 4 for creativeness. This kind of software is needed, especially for people who aren't necessarily familiar with installing/upgrading to a newer OS and would otherwise pay someone to do it for them. Good job!

I noticed one or two spelling mistakes in the program.

This could be useful for schools, but the average person is not likely to need it. In most cases, the software will be installed when one gets their machine, and anyone planning to upgrade from Win98 is likely to have done so already.

My only concern is that someone who doesn't know what they're doing might try reinstalling the real Windows program or fiddling with their BIOS.

It's a little late for this program, but a trainer for the next version of Windows could be useful.
