    It made those files by itself. I just erased them all and copied the VHD file over and re-installed while pointing to that file.

    Sorry for being bothersome but my current problems are:
    1. I can't get sounds working.
    2. I can't copy from the 7 desktop to XP desktop. But I can copy the other way around for some reason.
    3. I can't find a way to access the C drive of my host machine.
    4. Scroll doesn't work in IE or Firefox.

    seems some kind of bugs on clean up when failed to create the vmlite xp mode vm, and resulted in those extra files. We definitely need to perform more testing in 2nd choice.

    Did you use the 2nd option to create this 2nd vm? If so, our guest additions should automatically installed to your vm, and the vm should be integrated with desktop, can resize, etc.

    Just in case something went wrong, you can re-install the guest additions, going to menu Devices > Install Guest Additions...

    Also check the settings on Audio, I attached my vm settings, you can compare.

    Yes, I used the 2nd option. Guest additions seem to be installed now but were not before. It shows up as D: in XP mode, but when I click it, it tries to install itself again.

    I still can't access my Win7 C: drive. Also, when I try to copy a file from Win7 desktop to XP desktop, it says...

    4 is a known problem with some mouses, we fixed in our new build, will release soon. if you use the fresh vhd, issue 1-3 won't exist.

    For now, you need to do the following:
    (1) install guest additions, as I described in last reply
    (2) you need to add C: to your shared folders, goto menu Devices > Shared Folders, then add C: and more drives
    (3) inside vm, you need to map a drive, say, H:, to \\.host\sfs
    your host drives will appear as subdirs of H:

    After I map my drives to \\.host\sfs, it shows the drives, but when I click on them, they still refer to my C: in XPM.

    Did you add your host C: to the Shared Folders? go to menu Devices > Shared Folders ..., the add your host C: as permant

    Our HowToGuid.pdf file has some instructions

    yes, the 2nd option has room to improve

    Ok, I can access my Win7 C drive now. The problem happens when you try to rename the folder name when adding shared folders.

    Still, when I try to copy something from my Win7 desktop to XPM desktop, it says "Cannot copy file: Cannot read from the source file or disk". (Not a very big deal)

    More importantly, after I installed a theme pack I reset the machine and now it keeps crashing on me. Hmm...

    you mean that the vm can't boot now? or just the application crashes after boot?

    After I installed BricoPack Vista Inspirat Ultimate 2, which is a theme pack for Windows XP, it just closes itself when logging in. It boots, then when it starts logging in, the program just closes itself.

    I've tried restarting, but no luck. It happens when it says "Windows is starting up".

    It's too bad I can't roll back to before I installed that...

    Anymore suggestions? Maybe I should just go back to Windows XPM and wait for a few months before I switch again.
