How to Add Limited User Accounts to Windows Virtual PC XP Mode

This will show how to add a user account with limited rights to Windows Virtual PC XP Mode.
Note   Note
Default user account in XP Mode is XPMUser. When adding other user accounts, if you choose account type as Computer Administrator you can use this account to log in.

If you want to create a Limited user account with no administrative rights, you have to add it to a group called Remote Desktop Users before being able to log in to XP Mode. Limited users not belonging to this group can't log in, instead they get an error dialog telling they have no permission every time they try to do this:

Here's how to give permissions to new users:
  1. Create limited user account(s) you want to using Control Panel > User Accounts
  2. Open Start Menu, right click My Computer and choose Manage
  3. Click and open Local Users and Groups on the left pane, click Users and double click the limited user account you want to grant right to log in

  6. Close Management Console
You can now log in to XP Mode using this limited user account. Please notice XP Mode does not allow user accounts without passwords.
