the problem is of course that XP (whether it's in XP mode or a HOST on a physical machine or a separate Virtual Machine using vbox / VMware etc is that IT'S A SINGLE USER MACHINE.
(This means that ONLY 1 USER CAN BE LOGGED ON PER SESSION) -- note these can be DIFFERENT users / accounts but when you set the default login then that is for a SPECIFIC user. You aren't breaking the EULA -- you can have 10 zillion users on the machine - but only one at a time.
Since different users login and out of the VM you can't do it this way.
The automatic login will only work when the machine is booted up.
Since the XP mode VM is always operational what you want I'm afraid can't be done with that piece of software -- you need some sort of server mechanism to be able to run your XP Virtual machine in "Kiosk Mode"
This is NOT a trivial thing to implement -- suggest you read this article. You would need in any case a fully functioning INDEPENDENT VM say running under VBOX or VMWARE.
If you can get it working I'm sure loads of us would be VERY interested as there could be quite a use for this type of application. http://cyberdelia.de/2006/08/kiosk-s...th-vmware.html
