    After setting up an XP virtual machine on my new Windows 7 desktop, I
    installed the application I needed XP to run. The app appeared to install
    successfully, but when I try to start it I get the error mssg: "this app
    cannot run as a terminal services client." This is a one person computer and
    I need to run in XP. Help???

    Since you decline to name the program you're having trouble with, it's
    hard to do anything but make a wild guess. I think it's really a
    Windows 7/MS Virtual Machine issue, not a Windows XP issue.

    My guess is that Microsoft's virtual machine is coded to specifically
    disallow this mystery application. I guess that you might have better
    luck with a different virtualization product like Oracle VM VirtualBox.
