Unfortunately, after all this, I restarted both VMs, and cannot log on to either. Won't take the user-id and password under which they were created.

I shutdown the VMs, disabled Integration Features at startup and was able to login as XPMUser.

So now I am looking for the thread on how to re-enable Integ Feat.s

Did you ever manage to log in to XP Mode? or did this happen the first time you booted it?

I started up both XPModes at the same time, and did not need to login. I shut both down, and left them overnight. This AM when I started both, I was asked to login with my Windows 7 credentials, and that of course did not work. I shut them down after several tries (they went into hibernation for some reason.) I logged off windows 7 and restarted.

I turned off Integration Features and when I started both, the credentials to login were set to XPMUser, which let me login.

Now I've logged onto each with XPMUser and enabled Int Features. Updated and logged off. Both were visible on the Windows network while running.

This is enough for right now. I am going to backup everything before proceeding any further.

Thanks again.

Thanks

Top left of the XP Mode window you have Action, USB, and Tools menus. Integration features ON / OFF is first item in Tools menu. Notice that Tools menu is not visible in full screen mode.

I just reread your posts and found possible explanations to your login problems.

If you add standard, non-administrator user accounts to XP Mode, by default they are not allowed to log in. Read this tutorial to add standard user accounts to XP Mode: Virtual PC XP Mode - Add Limited User Accounts

The second thing I noticed (or did I misunderstand you?) is that you told you tried to login to XP Mode using Win7 credentials. This of course does not work. As in any Windows computer, you can only login using user accounts and credentials of that particular computer.

I hope you can solve your issues.

Like I said, I was able to start both XPModes without credentials a couple of times. But when I started up the AM I was faced with login credentials.

I did not add any credentials, during the install and the first couple of working sessions. WXP installed some updates to both boxes, and I shut them down.

Then I tried starting them up in the AM. WXP presented me with my regular Username (lets call it Win7) as a prompt when WXPM started, which was very odd. Even though I entered the legitmate password for Win7, I would get an error message. I tried XPMUser and same thing.

I then shut both VMs down, then changed settings to disable Integration Features, then I was presented with XPMUser to login with and the password worked. Logged in and have enabled Int Feat manually.

Odd stuff.

It is indeed odd stuff.

It's simply not possible to use host's (Win7) credentials to log in to the XPM, as it is not possible to use computer1 credentials to log in to computer2. Only exception to the rule is the situation where user creates an user account in XPM with same username and password he uses on host.

It's a complete mystery to me how in earth XPM by itself asks other than XPMUser credentials, when no user accounts are yet created. I really hope you can sort this out.

Keep us posted, this is an interesting issue and at least I am very keen to learn the outcome.

Been using one of the XPMs for almost a week with no other issues.

Keeping fingers crossed.

Still psyched about trying some of the other products from VMWare.

Also, have a Linux distro CD I was wanting to try.

But those are for other threads!

Cheers you'all...

Had the same proble and found a simple solution

If you're saying the XP Mode screen is just black and wont run, try
deleting the file "Windows XP Mode.vsv" file in the folder
C:\users\[your user name]\appdata\local\microsoft\Windows Virtual PC\Virtual
Machines.

It worked perfectly for me.

Hope it does for you too.
