Hey guys, sure this question has been asked a million times but didn't find a solution to my exact problem.
My company just bought a new PC that has Windows 7 on it. My previous pc had XP and 9.1 worked great with it, however it died a couple months ago. We couldn't get Mastercam 9.1 to run at all on Windows 7. It never would recognize the hasp, which is the new USB style one. Did finally get X to run but it has graphic issues and I loathe X compared to 9.
So we upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate to get the XP Mode. Got 9.1 to run under that mode but there are stability issues. Takes forever to load prints, data with surfaces or anything with lots of "stuff" on the screen. Or even getting back to main menu. For example if I delete something, then hit escape, takes a long time moving back to main menu.
Is there anything better out there then "XP Mode"? Or is our best best to bite the bullet and do a fresh install of XP?

Rates a 4.8 on Windows Experience. So seems to have enough to run everything fine. Has more power then my old pc and other pcs here, one that runs WorkNC and other 9.1, with no problems on either. So only difference between those three is this one having Windows 7 and those two XP.
