Don't understand Enable Integration Features
I installed Virtual PC and XP Mode but my drives weren't shared - I could not get to my host computer's files and My Documents folder was not on the XP mode desktop. In settings, Auto Integration was on and everything was checked. (Maybe "Enable inegration feature" was not enabled I don't know-wouldn't that have been on automatically?). After first installing was there something I needed to set up to share drives or would it have been done automatically? I tried to attach my printer and it looked for the printer software but couldn't find it. Do I need to install the printer software on XP?
ANyway, I thought it has something to do with the 2 computers needing the same name so I changed XP mode's computer name. Now I can not login when Enable Integration Featuers is on. I did set up a password when setting up XP mode in the first place. I tried changing that password that does not work. Any suggestions? Should I just unistall and start over? What will unistalling to do the software I installed in XP mode? I have Windows 7 64-bit OS. thanks

To start, here's what Wikipedia has to say on this subject:
Virtual Machine Integration Components
To facilitate the exchange and sharing of files, folders and data between the host and guest operating systems, Virtual PC provides an optional set of Virtual Machine Additions. These can be installed in the guest OS to provide the following functionality across the host and guest:
Virtual PC integration components have to be installed in order to to enable integration features. To install integration components, run XP Mode or any other Virtual PC machine, where you want to enable integration.
To install integration components, start the virtual machine and go to Tools menu, choose Install Integration Components. Notice that this menu option is not visible if the integration components are already installed:
When integration components are installed, you can enable or disable them from the Tools menu:
You can also change virtual machine settings so that integration features are automatically enabled. This can be done from virtual machine's settings, for instance XP Mode's settings:
If you enable integration features automatically at startup , be sure to scroll down the list of host computer's drives and check the last item: Drives that I plug in later. This way you don't have to manually enable a new drive when it's plugged to host:
Hope this clarifies the issue a bit. Keep asking if you have questions.
