Windows 8 Clients forgets credentials to Windows 7 after restart

Hi guys,

I'm using Windows 8 under VMWare Fusion on a Mac to access Windows 7 machine which acts as a file server. Both are part of Workgroup. The problem I experience is that after every reboot Windows 8 forgets the credentials despite checking the box "remember". Anybody else have this problem? How did you resolve it?

Thanks.

Found the problem. Apparently, it happens to Windows 7 users too.

One needs to go to Control Panel -> User Accounts and Family Safety -> Credential Manager -> Windows Credentials and add a Windows Credential. If done this way, it will be saved and assigned Persistence: "Enterprise", whereas if done after reboot it will be "login only", last only current session and won't be saved in the system.
