Windows 7: How to attach USB's automatically on VM running XP Mode

How to attach USB's automatically on VM running XP Mode

Hi,

I've installed WXP Mode under my system with W7 x64.
A couple of USB devices (USB2Serial and USB2Parallel converters) are installed/recognized in both OS's (W7 x64 and WXP Mode).
These USB devices are intended to be used only in the virtual system with XP Mode.

My problem:
USB devices need to be attached manually on my WXP virtual system after every hibernate, shutdown and restart event.

Is there any way to attach both USB devices automatically after launching the virtual system with XP Mode?

Thanks in advance,
Jaisol

Hi, i don't think it retains the settings...so each time it launches you have to manually attach those Usb devices.
