Update on the settings, you don't need to use virtual PC to manage the independent XP mode.

Start > Programs> Windows Virtual PC > Manage Virtual Machines > Right click on the Virtual Windows xp.vmcx

Just make sure the VM is shut down.

Also Pining XP mode apps on the taskbar doesn't use the Icon, the pinned item only acts a a quick launch. =/

I was just pointed to something else you may want to look over regarding the XP mode. "How many Intel CPUs will fail the XP Mode test in Windows 7?" was the title for the article seen at How many Intel CPUs will fail the XP Mode test in Windows 7? | Ed Bott’s Microsoft Report | ZDNet.com

According to the information brought up there certain bios features may have to be present and enabled for both Intel and AMD cpus with certian selective models in order to see working results. The cpu in use needs to see either the Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) or AMD Virtualization (AMD-V).

I got the same issues as Wiisper above. When it proceeds to copy the VM file I get a failure saying the File cannot be Copied. It happens everytime. Has anyone else seen this and found a solution?

The download links from Microsoft are in steps 1 and 2 though. Not just the MSDN or TechNet links.

LOL, I understand that. I do like those download buttons, but you can't change the text for it so I just went with the links instead.

One suggestion here would be compiling a list of cpus that will support virtualization for both Intel and AMD. It will take some time but will make things easier for anyone wanting to try this out and only later finding they are not running a cpu seeing support.
