Default Windows 7 Professional question


On Windows 7 Professional there is an XP mode. Will I be able to install games or programs that aren't compatible on Windows 7 on my computer to be used on XP mode? I'd like to get Fallout 3 but I notice people are struggling to run it sometimes on Windows 7 so I'm hoping I could run it on XP mode.

Thanks for the help.

So far so good with windows 7 for me. I haven't had any issues with software. Even with older stuff. I wouldn't worry, but yeah when you right click and go to the properties of you can do that "Run as XP,2000" and such
