Additional Install Of Security Software For XP Mode ?

Hi,

I have just installed Windows XP mode on my Windows 7 Ultimate PC and have a message popup in the XP mode window indicating that Anti Virus may not be installed on my PC

I have McAfee security software installed on the PC via the Windows 7 environment, do I need to install this software additionally in the XP mode environment?

Thanks for the link, it explains it all.

I assume that if I have a Win XP mode and use Microsoft Office in it then I have to install Office into the XP mode environment even though it is installed in the Windows 7 environment or is it possible to share some programs between both environment on the same PC?

Think of XP Mode as any other computer connected to your network. If you for instance have a game installed on computer1, you can not play it on computer2.

So yes, your assumption is correct; the software you want to use in XP Mode, have to be separately installed. The same thing as it was with the AV and firewall applications, XP Mode can not access those installed in host.
