    This has probably been discussed before but a search doesn't bring it up.

    Here's the setup:
    I have an exe installed in Win7.
    I'd like to be able to run it from XP mode (and also from 7).
    I set up a shortcut in XP mode. It works!
    I reboot and it no longer works!?

    The shortcut properties in the target text box before reboot shows:
    "\\tsclient\C\Program Files (x86)\..." and it works.

    But after reboot that same text box is empty and read only.

    Why? And is it fixable?

    Thanks
