Hello, I just installed XP mode on windows 7 and installed the apps that I would like to have.  Logged off and closed the pc but the folder for xp mode apps never shows up.  I have tried adding exta icons to "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs" but nothing shows up.  Also made sure that auto publish is enabled.

I'm confused, is that a question or a statement?  I'm confused, I would like to run IE6, and Excel 2007 with a plug-in under XP mode.
