Windows Virtual Machine

I have Windows 7 Home Premium. I've managed to install XP pro on the virtual machine. But cant access the internet through XP. Also, I can't figure out how to install aps on the virtual machine/XP.

Any help is appreciated.  Thanks.

What are you virtualizing with?  In VMware workstation set your network to bridged.  The firewall could get in your way too.

As for apps, you can mount your CD drive, or connect to an ISO?

Did you try to use XP Mode?  Only works on Pro and above.

If not XP Mode, what virtualizing product did you use?  VMware, Virtual Box?  or ?

Is networking Bridged or NAT?  or other?

You need to put it on the network and make the VM network use the host network. You may he hampered because the host machine is crippled (Windows Home)

I got it going. I simply shared the network connection on the host machine.

It's working great.
