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

You’ll need to download the XP Mode installer from the Microsoft website. After it is installed start the XP OS within the VM and it’ll open a window on your machine running Windows XP. Install what ever software is needed then simply close the Window. On your Windows 7 start menu you’ll see “Windows Virtual PC” then “Windows XP Mode Applications” which will have what ever applications were created on the Windows XP start menu in it. You can then move these icons to other locations in the start menu if you’d like.
