Windows 7: No "Remember Credentials" choice in XP Mode Setup Wizard!

No "Remember Credentials" choice in XP Mode Setup Wizard!

Hello,
I've just freshly restored the Windows 7 Ultimate Edition image from the restore DVDs for my Thinkpad. Once I had completely installed all relevant Lenovo and Microsoft updates, I set up Windows XP mode while still logged in as the administrative user, an error. There was the option to remember user credentials in the second panel of the XP Mode Wizard which I selected and verified that the resulting XP Mode VM did autologin as required (integration mode was automatically started as well).

So I logged off that Windows 7 account and started the XP Mode Wizard in my usual standard user account, but this time there was NO "Remember credentials" option available in the second panel of the XP Mode wizard.

I logged back into the administrative Windows 7 account, deleted all the XP Mode files, and started the XP Mode set-up wizard again, and this time there was NO "Remember credentials" in the second panel.

In each case, the VM's "Delete credentials" button in the relevant VM settings page is greyed out, as is the ticked option to remember credentials lower down in that settings page. Integration is auto-started as well.

What's going on? How can I restore the "remember credentials" function for XP Mode?

dont know if this will help for you but i had a similar problem with not being able to login, the way i got around it was,
to turn integration off start xp mode (you shouldnt need to log in now) then go to your user accounts and set up login details.

Ach, I haven't been clear: I can login manually perfectly alright in the XP VM, it's the option to have the Windows 7 Host remember and automatically login to the XPMUser XP Mode user that is missing! The "Remember Credentials" choice is missing in the initial XP Mode Setup screen where you type in a password for the new XP Mode VM.

I want to know: how do I get that option back? It appeared the first time I setup an XP Mode VM while logged on as an Administrator, but no longer appears in XP Mode Setup on the second and later XP Mode Setup (I had to delete the first VM) as either an Administrator or Standard User.

i had to re install xp mode a few days ago and im sure that option was there, seems odd that it would be missing for you.

once your logged in can you not go into 'user accounts' and set up your admin passwords in there?

im petty sure when i set mine up it was asking for a log in each time and i changed mine in 'user accounts' as you would in a normal XP set up

Thanks for trying to help me! I really appreciate it.

Just to be clear: the password fields in the second panel of the XPMode start-up wizard are present and work exactly as expected (i.e. the credentials are set up in the XP Guest VM), but the VM host-side "Remember Credentials" tick-box in that second panel is not present, and no credentials ever get stored in the host-side "Credentials Manager". I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1 with all current updates.

What would be the correct set of credentials for VM name "VirtualXP-64805" and user "XPMUser"? should I set up Generic or Windows credentials? Maybe I can set up the credentials manually, but not being an expert on Windows credentials, you'll have to be pretty explicit--but I've used the credentials manager for other things before... although the absence of the tick-box in the set-up wizard leads me to think that the connection between the various components (VPC, RDP and the credentials manager) simply is not configured. It all makes XP Mode not very seamless at all.
