Just that you need extra licence with downgrade rights to run XP mode in other virtualisation than microsofts...

XP Mode is a Windows 7 only virtual machine. It does not run in VMware Player (or Workstation). That is why you do not see it.

I did see the article below, but I have never used it. I just use a regular XP machine (not XP mode) as my VMware virtual machine.

You should be able to Import the Windows XP Mode virtual machine on Windows 7.

Have you downloaded and installed the Windows XP Mode virtual machine on the host system.

Just to be sure ... are you running '7 Pro or higher?    XP Mode is not available on the Home & Home Premium versions.    And it runs under Microsoft's Virtual PC ... not under VMware.
