    Is the XP licence you've installed retail, oem, or volume?

    XP- mode is supposed to be pre-activated but I guess only for 7Pro or better. If you install on 7Home you have to supply a key!?

    I do not have any XP disc any more

    I was saying earlier I do not have any XP disk or key - if I had the problem would be fixed already!
    I have exactly 1 older software requiring the VM to work properly coz it's slow as a turtle in 7HP.

    I do not need VMware as it is already up and running in the MS VM but it will expire in 30 days without activation.
