Using Outlook in unison with Windows XP Mode based applications on Windows 7
Posted on 2014-03-05
We have a piece of software that only runs on Windows XP so we are running on a Windows XP mode VM on Windows 7. The customer accesses the software via a shortcut on the desktop of their Windows 7 PC rather than going into the XP Mode VM.
We are trying to configure sending information from this application which uses Outlook mail profile. The application is not able to send if Outlook is not open, testing shows that after sending the email we have to go into the full XP mode VM and open Outlook to get the email to send.
Is there anyway we can get Outlook to open in the background of the VM when we open the XP mode shortcut ? So that both application and VM Outlook open and run at the sametime and we are able to send out email using the application ?
