I wanted to know if we can create a virtual environment for an application (Counter Strike game in this case), so the application thinks it is in another OS(WinXP) rather than the HostOS(Win7).

Please let me know if that is possible using any software such as vmware. And I have tried using vmware, but i am having trouble in connection and graphics.
ThankYou in advance.

Hi. CS 1.6 works fine for me in Windows 7, why do you want to run it as XP?
btw you can use 'compatibility mode' to achieve what you want. Right click the CS shortcut, click Properties, click the compatibility tab.
Check 'run this program in compatibility mode for' and select Windows xp from the list.

Well, custom-spray isn't working. I figured from comparison, (of my friends' PCs) that they all have winXP and they can run custom-spray.
Basically that's it. Any solutions ???

Custom spray? Maybe you need to put the spray image in some particular folder in the CS directory? Haven't used custom sprays much.
