Adding win 7 fonts to win xp mode

How can I get all the fonts installed in win 7 over to my virtual environment? I have copied my font folder over there, but I still cannot see them. Pleaes help? I am absolutely desperate after this upgrade to Win 7! In have an urgent deadline using PageMaker 7 and I need to see the fonts there. Please, no abuse regarding the fact that I use PM. And my new pc can definitely handle the toll on memory and resources. I'm purchasing InDesign to solve the problem, but my problem is immediate. Help, please!

I don't think you can. Have you tried running the program in Windows XP compatibility mode on Windows 7? Here is how to do that: Compatibility Mode

Well, that apparently won't work. Here's what I get:
"Compatibility modes cannot be set on this program because it is part of this version of Windows" which is BS, because it is cleary NOT "part of this version." I just feel there MUST be a way to install fonts in virtual mode. I am so frustrated, but I appreciate your effort. Thanks, anyway.

Did you run PageMaker7 in compatibility mode? That was what I was talking about, not Virtual PC.
