As usual, XDA-Developers is the spot – mamaich just announced a new tool that allows you to run x86 Windows applications on Windows RT (ARM) powered tablets.

The tool emulates x86 instructions and passes the Windows API calls to the Windows RT kernel with some necessary modifications. It’s currently in beta version, but it has an installer and a GUI launcher, the number of the emulated Windows API functions is increased too, anyway it’s still very far from being a perfect solution.This tool supports only 32-bit Windows native applications and it will not allow you to run any type of drivers, .NET apps or DOS programs.

Note: Launching one x86 app from another is not supported yet, installers that decompress themselves and launch additional .exe files would not work at the moment.
