Windows 7 Searches & Indexes Virtual Machines, Too

Posted by William Diaz on July 12, 2011

I was using mmc as the application launch criteria in the Windows 7 Start WIndows_7_Orb_icon_by_skyangels > Search programs and files and upon hitting Enter, it kept launching Windows XP Mode. I had no idea up until this point, but Windows Search will index applications in the virtual machine. It took a couple minutes for me to realize this because normally I don’t visually scan the Search programs and files list. In this case, because there is no BlackBerry Management mmc for Windows 7, I had to install it in my XP mode virtual machine.
MMC.exe should work fine.
