Windows 7: Can't share host drive on Virtual PC

Can't share host drive on Virtual PC

Hello everybody
I have Windows 7 64 bit and tried to create a whole new virtual pc through the build in function in windows explorer. I have not used xpmode that works perfect also with sharing

I have then installed a windows 7 OS on the virtual pc and installed the integration features as well and here comes the problem. After restarting the virtual pc I can't share my host drives. I have set the checkmarks in settings but when I enable integration feautres in settings on start I get this annoying credentials prompt

I have not chosen any credentials at all when creating this so I can try with different pwd's but it does not work so I will never be able to share host drives or do anyone know how to solve this?

Found out this just now and will give you the same tip. If you use workgroup on VM remember to enter workgroup\username and pwd in credentials then it works perfect.
