Diskeeper Corporation Offers Complimentary License for XP Mode on Windows 7
Diskeeper Corporation announced today that their End User Licence Agreement (EULA) has been updated to allow an additional complimentary license of Diskeeper 2009 for Microsoft’s elite and business customers of Windows 7’s XP mode.

The latest Microsoft operating system will use desktop virtualization in its Professional, Enterprise and Ultimate editions so that customers will be able to run Windows XP compatible applications on their Windows 7 machines. Windows XP mode will be delivered as a free, out-of-band update to encourage users to make the switch to Microsoft's forthcoming operating system.

“We are following suit with Microsoft,” said Michael Materie, Diskeeper Marketing Product Manager, “by offering an additional complimentary license of Diskeeper 2009 for Windows XP to users of high-end Windows 7 editions. That ’feature’ is called XP Mode. So all of our current and future products (Diskeeper, HyperFast®, Undelete®) will include an allowance to install a second instance of that licensed software in XP Mode.”

Diskeeper Corporation’s recent EULA update signifies additional help to Microsoft and hardware OEMs to support customer upgrades. In the future, Windows 7 customers will be able to purchase Diskeeper Corporation’s products together with a complimentary licence specifically for use on XP Mode only.
