Installing Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3 on Virtual PC Running on Windows 7 Enterprise Edition?

    Question

  • The catch to this is that I cannot install the integration components until the service pack is installed.  Therefore, how do I move the SP3 .exe file to my Windows 7 desktop to my Virtual PC.  I was advised to enable NAT under networking in the Virtual PC settings.  What are my next steps?  How do I see the file from my virtual pc so I can install it?  That question is my first priority.

    My second, if allowed in this forum, is how to change my mouse settings so I can utilize the mouse pointer outside the virtual machine as well as in.  I believe I clicked okay by accident when this setting came up and I would like to know how to reverse that.

    Thank you very much.

  • Just download SP3 from here

    This is intended for IT pros but works as a download to a single computer when needed.  You may safely disregard the advisory.

      That should happen automatically when you install the intergration components.
