27 aprilie 2012 18:47When you create a new XP Mode machine in the all programs window you should see an XP Mode Applications folder from which you can run virtual applications within Windows 7 without having to actually go into the XP Mode machine. I had to make a new XP Mode machine from an existing VHD and place it into the C: drive so that all users will have access to it, so it is no longer within the start menu. I still need to get access to this applications folder but cannot locate it. Any ideas?

Auto publish is enabled and I set the specific programs that I need under C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Shared Documents
When I was dealing with running applications from the start menu before a few applications did not show up in this folder so I had to place a shortcut for these applications within this folder in order for them to show up in the windows 7 - xp mode applications folder. But, I'm still stuck on getting finding these applications.

Please try the following suggestions.
1. Install the following update on XP Mode: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=8690
2. In XP mode, naviage to [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Virtual Machine\VPCVAppExcludeList], right click VPCVAppExcludeList and choose export. Save it to desktop as a backup. After that, please delete VPCVAppExcludeList key.
3. Put the application or folder to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu in XP Mode
4. Use Atl+F4 to close the XP Mode completely (Note Hibernated).
After that, you can view the virtual application from %localappdata%\Microsoft\Windows Virtual PC\Virtual Applications\Windows XP Mode on Windows 7

30 aprilie 2012 15:10Thank you for the response. I found a problem but am a bit confused with it. On the XP Mode machine I looked for the extension [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Virtual Machine\VPCVAppExcludeList], but once I got the Current Version, there was no Virtual Machine extension. Obviously this should be present, and I'll have to check and see why it is not.
1 mai 2012 18:46I'm having a similar problem but I can not get any program I install in XP mode to show up in the start menu in xp mode???

Are you using XP Mode or your own Windows XP installation?
XP Mode is not just Windows XP installed in a VM.
If you installed your own XP in a virtual machine, you will also need RemoteApp to publish apps:

4 mai 2012 14:25I am running an XP VM then I suppose. My issue started when I made the VM aside from XP Mode within the start menu, because when you start XP Mode, it doesn't allow you to create it from an existing VHD file. I've installed the update that you provided already and I'm still getting this problem. So I guess the question is, how do I create an XP VM within XP Mode from an existing VHD.
