    well although I managed to copy and paste text from XP to Host OS couldn't copy paste a file... I burnt the SP4 ISO's to 2 CD's when ran they extracted to a folder.....now can't see how to install the updates, hoped to see a setup.exe file..used aida64 ( says shareware but with a 39 day trial ??? ) the two unknown devices are to do with Hyper-V so nor problem....
    UPDATE
    the SP4 files are not exactly installed, they are simply copied to the installation folder, which I assume is WINDOWS....also there is another file depending on if I have XP pro K, N or KN whatever that means....have emailed for clarification.....

    I don't know what SP4 you have downloaded, but mine is a single file about 1GB that you simply run it. It automatically extracts the files in a temporary folder (takes some time) and then starts setup just like the previous official service packs. Google it again if you have not downloaded the proper file. I searched for "unofficial Windows XP SP4" and downloaded it from Softpedia. Don't worry about the unknown devices, if you don't use them anyway. Have you tried installing your software? How did it go? You should be able to copy-paste from Windows 10 and XP. You may also define a shared folder in Hyper-V so you can save to that and get the files directly in Windows 10 without copy-paste. See documentation.

    i downloaded a completely different version.....will now download the one you found, sounds a lot easier.....yes money matters installed first time and works perfectly....will try out the shared folder idea sounds good......used box.net to store files then opened in XP and downloaded them, very simple.....but shared folder would be easier......

    thanks

    How about sharing a Windows 10 folder as usual (to all computers in the network) and access that from Network Places in XP?

    will try that thanks
    but there is, I believe a built in option, the tutorials I have found start off by simply saying " create a shared folder in Hyper-V" but don't explain how

    Did you mean from a different computer to my Hyper-V XP ?......but if I want a shared folder between the Hyper-V. and the host OS on the same computer I would I assume need a ' link' between the two OS's.....which is what I need a procedure for......I am sure Kari would know how....

    I have absolutely not a faintest clue what you are talking about. Never heard about a "Hyper-V shared folder". The vm is exactly as any other computer, physical or virtual in your network and you share files between a vm and other machines in your network as you would share between two physical computers.

    There are several references on the internet about Hyper-V shared folders....maybe they are all confused !!!
    How To Share A Folder In A Hyper-V Virtual Machine With The Host
    here is an extract from such a post


    1. Connect to the Hyper-V host that you want to share a folder with
    2. Launch Virtual Switch Manager
    3. Add a new Virtual Switch (or modify an existing one), setting the Connection Type to be on the Internal network
    4. Edit the VM that you want to create a shared folder on and add a network card, connecting to the new switch
    5. From within the VM, change the IP address of the new network connection to an IP address in the same subnet as the host you want to share your folder with
    6. You may need to edit the network connectionís properties (then click on the Sharing tab) to Allow other network users to connect though this computerís Internet connection
    7. You may also have to allow File and Print Sharing in the Windows Firewall on the Hyper-V host so that the folder can be shared with the VM
    8. Finally, on the VM setup a shared folder (exactly how to create a shared folder will depend on the version of the operating system of the VM)

    The shared folders on the VM should now be visible on the Hyper-V host.

    As I said, maybe these posts are all in error or are talking about something different, it just led me to believe such a feature was possible....

    but a network shared folder on the same PC will be perfect for my needs
