    first of all, thanks for all those who have aided me in getting to my virtual pc xp mode

    now please, a couple of NEW queries:

    query 1
    I have installed a 16 bit DOS based application in the C: of the virtual XP Mode
    (it is a DOS based application, so there is no installing procedure)
    An icon (TIME.pif) is created with properties-program Cmd Line: C:\TIME\TIMELOG.EXE
    Working : C:\TIME
    The XP-Mode setting is set to ‘hibernate mode’ (on closing down)


    After I close the XP mode to return to the Win7 desktop, the shortcut/icon I created (TIME.pif) is NOT appearing on the Win7 desktop.
    WHAT AM I DOING WRONG ? (it is a DOS based application, so there is no installing procedure)


    query 2
    A 16 bit DOS based application is installed in the C: of my server (win server2008-32 bit).
    (c:\accounts\payroll.exe)
    In my virtualpc XPmode Win7 system,can I MAP the C: of the server (win server2008) as Z:
    (i.e the C: of the server is tagged as Z: in the XP mode system)
    Now since the application in the server is 16 bit DOS based , will the application run in XP mode of the virtual Pc.
    (I will create an icon in the XPmode with properties:Cmd Line: Z:\ACCOUNTS\PAYROLL.EXE)
    (the virtual Pc XP mode is the client NOT the server)

    thank you all for reading
