Ideally,when one install a program in Windows XP Mode, the program appears in both the Windows XP Mode list of programs and in the Windows 7 list of programs, so one can open the program directly from Windows 7
In my case,programs that installed under user account from "Install a program from Network" using GPO,appears in Windows XP Mode list of programs,but not in Windows 7 list of programs

Yes - the two modes are separate, not combined. ... Thinkpads_User

Thank you all
I found solution.In windows XP mode,one has to install applications under user account,then place any icons for apps in the all users start menu profile (C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu).

Thanks for the update. That is certainly how you would do the XP programs. And Docs and Settings is an XP location, whereas Windows 7 is in an entirely different spot.

Now I use VMware and Windows 7 and XP are isolated from each other.

So are you saying you can be in XP and open a Windows 7 program from within XP?

Thanks, .... Thinkpads_User

No.  You can install in the XP virtual machine (Virtual PC with "integration").  Most apps will show up in the Win7 start menu under VirtualPC.  If they aren't there, you can go into the XP machine and add the icons to the user's start menu.  Switching back to Win7, you should see the icons in the Virtual PC window.

Nice to run IE7 or Excel 2003.  But Access2003 is a bit of a dog.  I also have an ERP app that runs better in XP, and the windows will launch without bringing up the entire XP desktop as with a traditional VM.
