I did find the folder you mentioned but copying anything from the virtual drive to the logical drive only copies the info as in the virtual drive so the directory path does not link the two.
Ie: in the virtual drive the winrar shortcut shows as this:
In the "all users" folder the link to the same file looks like this:
%SystemRoot%\system32\rundll32.exe %SystemRoot%\system32\VMCPropertyHandler.dll,LaunchVMSal "Virtual Windows XP" "||a1ff403c" "WinRAR"
I assume a1ff403c is a designation for the virtual winrar folder but I have no idea what folder the "reminder 99" is listed as.
I made a shortcut in Virtual XP from the exe in reminders 99 and put it in the winrar directory and tried that but it didn't work.
But running that link did open winrar but showed the contents of the desktop (which does have a reminders shortcut) clicking on that link does work to activate reminders 99.
What I need is a single link rather than many to do the same thing, It's easy enough to open the virtual XP and run it from there but it would be better to have a macro do this when I start Win 7.
