Hmm, I have virtual installed at home on 7. I don't remember if there is an icon in there as part of the setup or not, I would have guessed that there is. In any case, does the program work correctly after you install it?
If it works as it should after the install, we can just create a shortcut in the start menu > Programs to use.
Is the XP Mode icon there or is the entire Windows Virtual PC Folder missing from the Start Menu?
What version of Win 7 are you running?
32 or 64 bit?
Does your system support hardware visualization and is it enabled?
If not, did you install the 3rd component so hardware virtualization is not required?
Are you by any chance installing this while logged in with a Standard Account, and providing Admin credentials when prompted? On my system it installed only for the current user (I don't recall if there was an option to install for all users), so it might be on the start menu of the Admin account whose credentials you used, rather than the account you were logged in under.
