Other than that, your best source of support for VM Lite will be from VM Lite.

Here's a shot of my Windows Explorer under MS VM-XP. Note that the "Local Drive (C: )" is the XP C: drive and that "DVD Drive (D: ) is also available to the XP machine. I can also elect to assign a USB drive to XP but I don't think VM-Lite supports USB of any kind.
Hello,

Hope is the right one i just opened VMLite XP Mode.
Hope is the one.

One way is to create a shared folder in Windows 7 and move your DOS programs there. Start your XP and copy the files from the shared folder to a folder on your XP machine then run the DOS programs from there. You'll only have to do this once. After that, the DOS programs will be on the XP machine.

the host folders are there, look at H: drive inside your vm. Your screenshot already shows that.

click c: d: e: to access host files, you can also do control-c/v for files between host and vm. VMLite runs much faster than ms xp mode. File transfer is also much faster.

you can try to create a shortcut to xp vm's Start menu, vmlite will auto add a shortcut on your windows 7 host. Just play with it, and you will get an idea.

in your host windows 7, delete that shortcuts folder for your xp vm, when you restart vm, it will try to regenerate the shortcuts.
