Windows 7: XP Mode downloaded but does not appear under Start menu

12 Oct 2011   #1

Windows XP Professional 32 bit
XP Mode downloaded but does not appear under Start menu

I have just made a fresh install of Wondows 7 Home Premium (after having XP Prof) and then upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate. All appreared well with that process.
I am new to this forum and not really sure of where to go next. I have followed the Forum instructions (XP Mode - install and set up) until no 7: Open and Run XP Mode
At this point there is no Windows Virtual PC folder visible.

How can I check that everything has downloaded correctly?

I had the same problem once. I had to uninstall XP mode, reboot, reinstall it, and reboot again. Try a reboot and see if it shows up in your Start menu then.
