After installing Window XP mode. I don't see under All Programs the Window Virtual PC software. I see that it was installed under Programs  (see attached).

I started the install went to the bathroom and returned to my computer. Nothing was on the screen. I rebooted the computer and checked to see if I could see the Window Virtual PC. Nope!
Should I uninstall the Window Virtual PC program and reinstall?
If you have any ideas, comments or suggestions they are welcome!
Thanks!

yeah one thing about xp mode you have to reinstall all your apps under the new xp mode operating system. If the software is only installed via windows 7, windows xp mode will not necessarily think that the software is installed.

I realize I need to install the Virtual assistant first before installing Win XP mode.
All is well!
