Hi Experts,
I have XP mode running because of a very old application.
But I need one short cut from the desktop on the xp mode on the real desktop on the win7 installation. How to do this ?

    does this help ?  Inside xp mode, create a shortcut to your app, under, %allusersprofile%\start menu. A few seconds later, the app short cut gets published on the win7 start menu under Windows Virtual pC"->"windows xp mode applications"
