Try this: Open the XP Mode computer by going to start and typing XP Mode and hit enter. In the virutal machine, go to C:\documents and settings\all users\start menu. There right click and create a new shortcut, and browse to the Hyperterminal exe. It should be at "C:\Program Files\Windows NT\hypertrm.exe". Then see if the shortcut shows up under the XP Mode applications.

I have used this processes before to add Paint (dont ask) to a users desktop. But when I tried it just now, I could not add hyperterminal or paint. So I don't know if my computer is acting up or what.

After a little more work I was able to get the above method to work with an Internet Explorer shortcut, but still not with hyperterminal. Maybe the XP mode has exempt software that cannot be virtualized in this manner.

I was able to get Hyperterminal to work by copying the entire exe to the all users programs folder, not a shortcut.

This works great for opening the program, but I'm still having issues with saved sessions. Looks like I'm going to have to use Putty.  Thanks for your help!
