If applications need to be packaged during the period that the customer is migrating from XP to Windows v7 is there any way to avoid having to do the package twice i.e. once in XP and once in Windows v7?

Yes. Any feature/component which might be different under W7 can be conditioned using the built-in OS property 'VersionNT'.

When you try to deploy your XP production applications onto Vista or Windows 7, you need to do a lot of testing to make sure it works fine. I have not worked on Windows 7, but in Windows Vista, there are a whole lot of issues to look out for like Standard User Mode, File and Registry Virtualization, UAC etc.

What they're trying to say is:
- find out what's not working with the XP-comaptible MSI on W7 by testing and using the "Setup Analysis Tool" in the ACT Toolkit.
- build your MSI with feature conditions that will prevent XP-only bits going to a W7 box and vice-versa
