Since no one has offered a suggestion, I guess the question is just not technical enough. Never mind... I found the answer in another forum.
Need your help to find a step-by-step, 'dirt simple' way to place an icon on the Win 7 desktop which will open the My Docs folder created in XP Mode. This folder also needs to be shared across the LAN we use.
All our critical programs run in XP Mode. What I am trying to do is create program and folder icon 'links' on the Win 7 desktop which open with XP Mode directly from the 7 desktop. Otherwise, I will have to open the XP Mode window first. I'd like to make this simple for my wife, who is just now getting accoustomed to XP. If she is required to jump back and forth from 7 to XP, it will get confusing (Meaning: It will be My Fault.)
I find numerous threads which seem to address this, but end up requireing you to rebuild the Registry, or something similar. What astounds me is that it appears Microsoft did not plan for this. Why allow XP program icons on the 7 desktop, if you can't also access the results from those programs?
