I installed windows xp virtual mode on windows 7 professional 64 bit under the domain account: "administrator". Under this account the virtual machine works fine. However, i can't access this virtual machine from other domain accounts. Is there a way to access the virtual machine file created under the "administrator"  domain account from other accounts?

I installed xp mode using a domain administrator account and it works fine. My problem is to run xp mode using the same virtual xp image created under the administrator account for other domain accounts.

If it's just a file ,why not just set up a new group with admin rights to that file and make those vm users members?
