In previous versions of Windows, any program that you wanted to run needed to be installed on that operating system, even if you dual-booted two different operating systems. For example, if you dual-booted Windows 2000 Professional and Windows 98 and had Office 2000 installed on the Windows 98 partition, you still had to install Office on the Windows 2000 Professional partition in order to run it.No longer. Now if you dual-boot, for example, Vista and Windows XP, and have Office 2000 installed on the Windows XP partition, you can access that program while running Vista.

In some cases, the program will appear on the All Programs menu in Vista. If it doesn’t, you can locate its executable file in an Explorer-type window and double-click its shortcut to start the program.
