My father in law recently was gifted a new Windows 7 Laptop. He however persists in using his practically dead Dell because it has some apps which he is dependant on.
If I put that drive, into a usb case - could these apps be executed on Windows 7 from that external drive? I realise that might require XP Mode. I am unsure whether either Windows 7/XP/The Apps would be disturbed by this change in hardware.
