Librarian and Windows 7

I've been testing Windows 7 64 bit, and have just discovered that eBook Librarian can be made to run nicely.

The trick is to load in the 'Windows XP Mode' support. It installs a virtual machine running XP, in which you then install the USB driver and Librarian program. Allow the virtual machine to see the USB ports, and everything runs very well.

The nice thing is that the XP Mode support is pretty seamless, the eBook Librarian shows on your start menu and runs in it's own window desktop.

The ebook librarian works fine on my Windows 7 64 bit without the need for XP mode.
Did I somehow accomplish the impossibile?
