Windows 7: mapping in virtual xp mode

mapping in virtual xp mode

my 16-bit clipper application software is installed on a dedicated Windows 7-64 bit system-C drive. (CompA)
the .exe file is TIMELOG.EXE (clipper 16 bit file). the folder name is TIME
(since it is installed on a dedicated system, i do not need to run the software on CompA.

CompA is networked to 8 other systems (2 XP, 2 Windows 7-32, 1 Win2008-32, 3 Windows 7-64 bit)
The C: of CompA is mapped as Z: to the client systems.

this is where am i stuck
The issue is with the Windows 7-64 client systems.
on the 64-bit client systems, when i click on the icon on the 16-bit clipper application, it does not run.
the properties-program of the icon in the 64-bit-systems are: Cmd line:Z:\TIME\TIMELOG.EXE
Working: Z:\TIME

so, after doing some r&d, i am going to install XP-mode-virtual-pc on the Windows 7-64 bit systems.

can i map the C: of CompA to the XP-mode-virtual Pc & designate it as Z: (after mapping)
will my 16-bit clipper application run after the mapping to the XP-mode-virtual-pc (in the 64-bit systems)
should the properties-program of the icon in the 64-bit-systems be: Cmd line:Z:\TIME\TIMELOG.EXE
Working: Z:\TIME


and secondly, where can i find & edit the CONFIG.NT file in the XP-mode-virtual-pc

thanks for reading.

yes

>> will my 16-bit clipper application run after the mapping to the XP-mode-virtual-pc (in the 64-bit systems)
it should

>> where can i find & edit the CONFIG.NT file in the XP-mode-virtual-pc
in the same place that you find & edit it on a real XP computer

The answers to these questions might be more obvious to you once (if) you get the KB to install...
virtual pc - XP mode
...and you open the XP Mode Virtual Machine.

While this seems like a slightly different topic... we could have easily handled all of your questions in one thread.

You better compile the application 32bits using xHarbour.org quite easy. But you need all sources to do that
