Windows 7: accessing software in Win 7 while in XP mode

accessing software in Win 7 while in XP mode

I had read that the software I want to use in XP mode has to be installed there.
I had already installed Microsoft Office in Windows 7, but I need when I am in XP mode.
If I install it also in the XP mode, Microsoft wants to activate it, but gives me an error that it is already activated.

Any suggestions.

Why do you need Office in XP Mode?

You can run other software(from Windows 7) while you are in XP Mode. XP Mode is only for programs that do not work in Windows 7 (that's what it is designed for) Most programs can work with Windows 7 (Did you try using Compatibility mode?)

Just minimize XP Mode and open up your other programs in Windows 7..

Hope this Helps,
