Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit) *** Windows XP SP3 (32-bit), OSX 10.6

From another thread I responded to:

Ok I think I understand better now. In fact, I happened to find something that might work for you, if you can handle a bit of registry editing: C# Snippets: Creating Shortcut to Application Inside Windows XP Mode

Note: Always backup important data before performing a registry edit.
Let me know if that helps!
