Windows 7: Cannot move XPmode application to 2nd monitor

Cannot move XPmode application to 2nd monitor

If I start an XPmode application from Windows 7 Pro 64-bit start menu it will start but I cannot then drag that program from the host monitor to my second monitor.

If however I start the Virtual machine XP mode then start the same application I can drag it over. Is this by design or a bug?

regards,

Ian

There is a limit to the width XP mode can support.

I run a 3 screen setup and can only have Windows on one and a half of the monitors.

It's just one of those little annoying things you're going to have to live with.

I think this is by design albeit a very bad one .
