Solution

This problem may be related to the Windows 95 Explorer.
Verify that the Explorer options are not set to hide MS-DOS paths.

1.Open the Windows Explorer.
2.Choose Options from the View menu.
3.Select the Display the full MS-DOS path in the title bar check box.
4.Choose the OK button.

If this does not work, make the target file a VHO file instead of a VHD
file. Windows Explorer appends the file type to the end of the file extension.
