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?
