A program installed in Win XPmode did not result in a shortcut appearing in Windows xpmode applications in the (win 7 Pro) start menu.
The program runs fine with XPmode open. Inside xpmode, short cuts are apparent
Does anyone know how to manually get win 7 to see an xpmode short cut?
Failing that, in a last gasp at functionality, could anyone tell me the command line code for accessing the host machine drives.
off hand, any code has to work as preamble (sent to DOS) providing a context for the legacy program.
The legacy program is an old version of Gauss that worked in win 98 and NT4.

By default, applications installed under ‘All users’ profile are auto-published to the Windows 7 host. So, if an application has created its shortcuts in ‘All users’ profile, no action is required from user. There are applications which don’t install for
“All users” and get installed for current user only. Follow the steps as below to publish such applications
Click on the Start Menu button
Right Click on Programs
Click open. You'll see the start menu open up as a folder. This is the start menu folder in the user's profile
You will see the application folder/shortcut appearing here. Copy that folder/shortcut (Ctrl+C)
Right Click on programs again and then Click on "Open All Users"
Now paste the above folder/ application shortcut to this folder (“All users” start menu)
In a few moments the application will get published to the host start menu
Let’s take an example for publishing command prompt. To publish it simply create a new shortcut to
cmd.exe at "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs" inside the VM. That is all you need to do for publishing the command prompt (Fig 2).
Did this solve your problem?
Sorry this didn't help.
