Can't open Virtual XP RRS feed

  • Question

  • HI there, I'm very new, so be gentle :) I have been using virtual XP with my windows 7 ultimate since July with no problem ( I have a program I use that is not compatible with anything past XP) Today when I attempted my XP open, it stays at the screen where I open xp and shows it's running. When I pass my mouse arrow to the taskbar window, it displays the screen I want ...the XP desktop. I cannot get it open. I have done a system restore, and of course restarted many times. If this isn't the right forum, if someone could guide me to the right place, I'd be so thankful.

  • " I cannot get it open." Do you mean the application?

    Have you shutdown and restarted XPMode?  A system restore on the host will not affect XP Mode.

    You can restart the VM from a cmd prompt

    type "shutdown /r /t 0" and press enter.
