I have a Windows7 machine on a Server2008 domain which has a legacy application requiring XP mode.  The program requires access to resources on a network drive, however, XP mode does not see network drives, and I am unable to add it to the domain.  What might the problem and resolution be?

Change the Virtual Machine in XP Mode to use BRIDGED Networking not NAT.


    Start -> All Programs -> Windows Virtual PC -> Virtual Machines
    Right click on your virtual machine configuration file.  e.g. Virtual Windows XP.vmcx
    Select Settings from the right-click menu
    In the Virtual PC Settings dialog, select Networking on the left.
    Change the Adapter drop down box on the right from Shared Network (NAT) to the name of your Ethernet card.
    Press OK
    Start/Restart the XP VM image.
