Windows 7: Copying files into "Windows/System" folder used by XP Mode

Copying files into "Windows/System" folder used by XP Mode

Hello Everyone,

I am working in Win7 XP Mode, trying to install and run a Microsoft utility called:
WT1230: Batch File Converter for PowerPoint for Windows 95

(see WT1230: Batch File Converter for PowerPoint for Windows 95 )

Yes, the utility is intended for Win95, but I'd like to see if I can get it running in XP Mode.

The utility installation instructions ask that I copy 2 files to the "Windows/system" folder. Of course, these instructions were written for Win95, not XP, let alone XP Mode.

Still... if I copy the files, the core executable runs fine, but it can't find the 2 files that should be in "Windows/System". So, I gather XP Mode must have its own Windows/Sytem folder.

Any ideas?

Cheers,

Jay

Windows Installation skips "Copying Window Files"
Everytime I try to install windows, it skips the "Copying Window Files" within a couple of seconds to 100%. I've tried burning the disc image from another computer and even at a slower rate since I thought the disc was corrupt but this didn't help either. I even tried a bootable USB, no luck too....
