How does the file system work for XP mode? Where is its desktop and folders located in the C drive? I've never used a virtual OS before.
What instructions were you referring to?
The Windows Explorer in XPM looks like a normal Windows Explorer with mappings of your Host drives, CD/DVD ROMs etc. You install .exe, MSI and any installer like you do on the Host machine. Just locate it and double click.
Think of a virtual OS as what is it, a virtual emulation of the real thing. All files, themes, settings are stored on one file .vhd and when you start XPM this file is used to populate your OS.
