How to copy Windows XP Mode Image

Hi, I'm wondering if there is a way for me to copy the customized XP Mode image that I have on one machine and transfer it over to another machine, with everything intact. Thanks in advance.

The easiest way to do that would be to copy the vhd file XP Mode.vhd, located in C:\Users\Your_Username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Virtual PC\Virtual Machines, install XP Mode and Virtual PC to that second computer, and replace the original XP Mode.vhd with your copy using XP Mode settings.

To do that, open XP Mode settings, choose Hard disk 1, browse to that copy of your XP Mode you want to use and choose it.

I'm running cmd as Admin with UAC and QuickEdit Mode enabled, but when I try to select something it beeps repeatedly as I hold down the mouse button, then deselects when I let it up disallowing copy. Anyone else see this behavior or know of a solution? This is really quite annoying. Thanks
