Transfering data from a vitual machine to windows 7

I have window 7 home on my machine. I had a version of simply accounting that did not run on windows 7 so I install it on a vitual machine on windows 7. I have since bought a version that will run on windows 7 because I had some errors with my vitual machine witch will not run anymore. How do I get the data from the vitual machine. If I try to get it with windows explorer of windows 7 it does not see it.

Welcome to WSF.

You can share files between the guest and the host operating systems by enabling shared folders.

However, I'm not quite sure how to do it so you might want to have a look in the WSF tutorials, go to Google or wait for one of our VM experts to come up with a solution.

This should do it.

System Image - Extract Files Using Disk Management

The Virtual Hard Drive (vhd) file should be located in a similar location as this:
C:\Users\<user-name>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Virtual PC\Virtual Machines with the file name "Windows XP Mode.vhd".

Follow the tutorial above to extract the files.
