I am having a strange problem as I have Installed Windows 7 RC Build 7100 for using Windows XP apps in it,

For this, i have installed the Virtual XP Mode in Windows 7.

And then i have installed MS Office 2003 and Astro-Office 2002 in Virtual XP,

Then as the Microsoft Claims that in Windows 7 using Virtual XP Mode given by them we can access the XP Apps from Win 7....it should show the Virtual XP Apps in Windows 7 Start Menu under Virtual Machines...

but it is only showing MS Office 2003 Apps and it runs fine....but it is not showing Astro Office 2002.....

whereas in Virtual XP i can use Astro-Office 2002 just like normal XP.

Pls Help me solve this problem....as i wanted to run this Application in Windows 7(and secondly, it can't run under Compatibility Mode i have tried it in Vista and also in Win 7)

Create a shortcut to the application in '%allusersprofile%\start menu' in the xp virtual machine. Restart the xp virtual machine. The application should appear in windows 7 start menu.
