This is my first post on this forum and hope Kari or someone can help me.
Still having troubles after mostly following the steps Kari listed. Kari wrote:
Easy and straight forward procedure. Like this:First, set XP Mode to use the NIC of your host machine to ensure they belong to same subnet. To do this, open XP Mode settings, choose Networking
from the left pane, and choose your host's network controller from drop down list. Click OK to save settings:
I cannot find the XPMode Setting page to confirm the above. Would someone please tell me how to get to this page ?
Secondly I followed the other steps re simple file sharing and same computer name and workgroup and now I cannot even get XPMode to start up.
Since I made the above changes, when starting XPMode I get a User and Password box and then a box saying "Logon Message ! You are attempting to connect back to your own computer. The requested operation is not allowed."
I have found the whole XPMode exercise so far to be infuriating and will be very pleased when I have found a way through all this. My particular problem is my lost Address Book and Emails from Outlook Express, which I used on my XP hard drive.
As I have removable hard drives, I can place my old XP C drive in as a slave to the new Win 7 C drive. This way I can see most of the files, but can't get to Address Book as I do not have OE running to export it. I want to transfer all over to Outlook 2010. I am using Windows 7 Pro 64bit system. It does not help that I cannot run XP and Windows 7 together, even though I had been able to switch between the two, as they do no see each others files. Is the 64bit system a problem here ? Should I have bought a 32bit version instead as it appears to be much better supported ?
Any advice most welcome please.
