    quick question, have a pc using xp/sp1 for port scanning proxies it has to be that and nothing
    else or port scanning TCP wont work, i can still run a few basic proxy testers, scrapebox
    but, i cant run gscraper. it requires xp/sp2 , that has to be installed on another pc.

    is it possible to install a vm on my xp/sp1 machine aka a vm xp/sp2 so gscraper can run
    in that instance?

    even if the answer is yes,

    will the vm install overwrite any of my main install xp/sp1
    thats all im worried about will vm sp2 over write or interfear with my sp1 of my main install
    if it does, tcp scanning will be blocked, just a yes or no

    You can use VMWare Workstation to install an XP SP2 virtual machine. It is a completely isolated machine and will not alter anything on your main computer (XP SP1). It's completely safe.

    It's installed on a virtual disk. A virtual disk is a large file that contains the data of the virtual machine. You will not be able to see or interact with the files inside the VM from the host system (XP SP1). The host OS is not affected in any way.

    Long answer: I am using virtualbox (from oracle), and you can have as many OS's you want, your stuff won't be overwrriten. Every VBox has it's own "hard disk". The "hard disk" is actually a file that is stored somewhere on your computer. If you want to make a backup of your VBox, you can easily do it by just copying the VBox files, in a safe place. Can't tell about VMWare, but for VirtualBox (linux), the files are saved into /home/username/VirtualBox VMs

    Sort answer: No, sp2 won't affect sp1.

    Virtual disks are not mapped to drive letters. You will not be able to do that and there really isn't even a need for that. The virtual disk will and should only ever be accessed from within the virtual machine.

    VMware Workstation is what I got. I find it very easy to use, although, it may be just me :)
    If you want, I can guide you through Skype. You'd just need to share you screen with me.

    also 230GBP a year to use it seems steep, i could buy a cheap pc for that
    and pass files back n forth and requires Windows XP SP3 to run

    Possible solutions:

    1. rent a VPS, install Gscraper on that.
    2. Try to build a Windows XP SP1 virtual machine on your gaming machine, test to see if you can TCP scan there OK. If all goes OK, rebuild old machine with newer windows and have the TCP scanning run on a virtual machine there and gscraper on the desktop. (You could backup the old machine beforehand with http://clonezilla.org/ so if it all went t**s up you could restore the image)

    Hope this helps.
