Messagem for Flight Simulator 2004

I installed the FS 2004 within the XP Mode, but when I try to start it appears the message:
Flight Simulator cannot run during a Remote Desktop session and will now quit

Is something wrong with my XP Mode??..

Nothing wrong with your XP Mode.

Your host machine (Windows7) sees and treats XP Mode or any other Virtual PC machine as a remote computer, using Remote Desktop Connection to let you to use it.

If you are not familiar with remote desktop connection, open the Windows Help & Support, type Remote Desktop to search field and hit Enter. Choose Remote Desktop Connection: frequently asked questions. A more comprehensive description is here: Remote Desktop Services - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sorry to say but it seems you can not play your FS 2004 on XP Mode.
