How do you transfer an XP-Mode VM from an admin Win-7 profile to another Win-7 user profile?

A new system shipped with Win-7 w/ XP Mode.
XP-Mode was configured under the Win-7 admin profile.
XP apps were installed and configured in the VM under the admin(win-7) profile.
The laptop was then configured with a Win-7 User profile.
The win-7 user needs to access the XP-Mode VM that's located under the Admin profile.

I see similar threads online but no final answers.

Yes, you just need to create the shortcuts - did you look at http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/w7itprovirt/thread/83fbae15-c60b-4483-8727-6e9ec97da6e9? 

"Publishing applications is a matter of putting an an application shortcut in the correct place. If you want to have an application appear under All Programs for all users, place the application's shortcut under C:\Users\All Users\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs. You can set things up the way you want for one specific user and then copy or move the application shortcuts from, for example, C:\Users\John\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs to C:\Users\All Users\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs."

Likewise you can use %USERPROFILE% path instead of All Users if you just want the single user to have access to the applications.

Good Luck

Thanks for the link above but the thread seems slightly convoluted however, I think we’re on track.  What are the specific steps involved with publishing applications for all virtual machines on a workstation?

If you want them for all users, then copy or move the application shortcuts from the admin user startup menu to C:\Users\All Users\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs - then anyone who signs on to the machine will have them in their start menu.

XP mode isn't so much about a virtual machine as it is an application that runs in an xp vm. It is the application you publish.
