can't use chrome in vpc xpmode

long story short.
I installed chrome in the vpc xpmode and then installed chrome. It doesn't show up under "Windows XP Mode Applications"; i.e. I can't access the app in Win7.

I installed opera in the vpc xpmode and it IS available under "Windows XP Mode Applications"

So you installed chrome in Xp mode, and tried to launch it from W7? I installed itunes in XPM and have not tried launching it from W7...can't do it now either cos i'm downloading top secret stuff from my XPM...

Well it's a feature. Like I said, Opera works fine using this method. I'm trying to get around whatever it is that crashes Chrome so much in 64-bit 7
