Enable Auto Publish on WinXP VM

Hey Guys,
I've installed a standalone copy of WinXP Pro and am doing all the updates right now. I'm checking the Auto Publish Settings and it says that "required updates are not installed in the virtual system"

are there any special updates i need to install to be able to enable auto publish or just update the VM system to the latest windows updates?


Thanks

Hi Icenine,

What auto publish are you asking about?

The auto publish of VM installed apps to the win7 start menu


Icenine,

I haven't got VM installed atm so I cant give you precise instructions, but once you have the XP vm running, select the tools menu at the top of the page and the integration options are there.

When i click Tools there are only 2 options
Disable Integration Features
Settings (which brings me to the settings menu for the VM system)

Also clicking the Help Link at the bottom produces a Winhelp file with NO information because VPC is beta. lol

As they already seem to to enabled, try disabling integration features reboot the vm and enabling them again.

TBH I've only played with the MS supplied XP image, which of course worked fine. - http://www.microsoft.com/windows/vir.../download.aspx
