Help with the xp mode and win 7 ultimate 64bit

Help with the following

* I have some software that does not install and just unzipp and ready to use. These are on my Win 7 Ultimate 64bit desktop or documents folder. How do I get them from the win 7 desktop into xp mode virtual machine on the same hd?

* Once you have a word software working in xp mode how do you move the docs (rtf etc) from the vr hd of xp mode to the win7 desktop?

* How do you exchange graphics (jpegs etc) between xp mode and the win 7 desktop?

* How do you view the contents of the xp mode vr hd with win 7?

TIA
John

Go to My Computer in XP mode and you should see the Hard Drives of the Host OS (Windows 7) under the network drive section. This should enable you to do all the 3 things you have listed above.

* How do you view the contents of the xp mode vr hd with win 7?

I am not aware of a simple way. However I believe that if, within XP mode, you share the drive over the network you should be able to access it from Windows 7

I assumed it was Microsoft Virtual-PC because of the mention of "XP Mode"

Oh! I was confused by that, as I've only used VMWare and Virtualbox. By XP mode, I'm used to that phrase in the OS Win 7.
