The keyboard I'm running on my Win7 (host) machine is styled after a laptop keyboard with a touchpad & no 10-key. So there's a numlock to use the 10-key which falls over the "U, I, O, P, J, K, L & M" keys. Every password I created during attempts to get this to work contained at least one of those letter & by default the numlock key must be on at login screens so I was getting random numbers in my passwords. There's no real way to tell because for security reasons when you enter your password you just get bulletpoints rather than characters. So basically I changed the password to "fast" which doesn't contain one of those letters & POOF, it worked. I did re-install Win7 with no luck & that's when this came to me.

Thanks for letting us know how you solved it.
Sometimes it's the easiest thing that causes difficult moments.
