I have a client with a Windows XP VM (Microsoft Windows XP Compatibility Utility) running on a Windows 7 Machine. I need to move it to another Windows 7 machine.
I have followed the steps outlined here https://www.hanselman.com/blog/TransferringMovingAVHDFromWindowsVirtualPCWindowsXPModeToAnotherComputer.aspx
Specifically I merged the parent and differential changes into a single file on a flash drive and named it the same as the original parent file. I then took the combined file and placed it on the new computer here: C:\Program Files\Windows XP Mode\ replacing the Windows XP Mode base.vhd file created when I installed the Windows XP Mode VM machine software.
I then started the Windows XP by double clicking the Windows XP icon here: C:\Users\(user name)\Virtual Machines, got an error and immediately the Windows XP icon went missing leaving nothing in the folder.
What did I miss?
