Windows 7: xp mode on premium version

Important:

Note   Note
When you install Windows Virtual PC, it always adds the Start Menu item Windows Virtual PC > Windows XP Mode even if you have not installed the XP Mode, as now in your case. As you have the Home Premium edition, Windows XP Mode can't be installed on your host system even though the Start Menu item is added by the Virtual PC installation.

This Start Menu item is in your case, in any case when XP Mode is not installed, an unnecessary confusing "dead" link. Please remove it from Start Menu by right clicking it and selecting Delete.

You do not have Windows XP Mode, you have a self installed Windows XP vm. The Windows XP Mode shortcut in your Start Menu does and will not work.

I'm up and running. I was able to load my simulator that I needed, and it is working! I wish I could create a full screen, but my reading here...Full screen in Windows Virtual PC? is not possible. I just changed the resolution within and was at least able to make it a little bit bigger. Thank you for all the help.

Did you install the integration components? Full screen should be possible when integration features are enabled. See this tutorial: Windows Virtual PC Integration Features - Install, Enable, and Disable
