Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

just follow the link below,xp mode will only run on win 7 pro,enterprise and ultimate, And your cpu must support virtual technology[vt]

The CPU support for VT has been removed.

When you install an app within the Windows XP VM when you close the VM window the shortcut will be placed on the Windows 7 start menu under Windows Virtual PC > Windows XP Mode Applications. You can copy or move these shortcuts on your desktop as needed.
