Windows 7: XP Mode Publish apps to Start Menu

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Signature Edition
XP Mode Publish apps to Start Menu

Hi guys,

I'm running win 7 ultimate and installed XP Mode. How do I access the applications from the win 7 start menu? I've been using Win 7 for awhile but haven't quite figured it out.


Can you have it publish when using Virtual PC 2007 (my mom's computer only has Home Premium on it)? I saw this update on the MS website "kb961742-v3" and thought it would do it, but when I installed it, nothing new happened.

Merry Christmas

All instructions are for latest Virtual PC not in Virtual PC 2007.
Hope this helps. Kindly search the forum before posting.
