Windows 7: new to find program directory in XP Mode

Windows 7 Professional 64bit
new to find program directory in XP Mode

(thread title should read "need" not "new"

I installed XP mode in my Windows 7 Professional 64 bit laptop to be able to run my older programs. I successfully installed CompuServe (my mission critical software) in XP mode, but I need to find the program directory because that's where the data files for the filing cabinet are stored. I need to upload my latest data to that directory and to be able to back it up. Without a current filing cabinet, the program is useless.

I can't for the life of me figure out where the program files are. They're not obviously visible using Windows Explorer. Any idea how to find them and to be able to access them?

In Windows XP mode, turn on hidden folders under Folder Options on toolbar

See if they are first in C:/Program files or Documents & Settings/XPM user/Application Data or Local Settings/Application Data.
Or it might just be in C:/ or My Documents

Maybe it uses a different name than Compuserve

I have not used the program so have no idea otherwise.

program directory

Thanks. Already found it within the virtual machine. It's a little tricky working with the virtual machine, but am finding my way.
