Yeah, I know what you mean with being worn out. I also slept a few hours, for me it's now Sunday morning and my rigs are online again. Staying home but not necessary on Seven Forums all day, just come back to tell how it went and I'll check in every now and then to see if you got it.

After reading your bio I noticed I owe you an apology; I made the instructions as if I was making them for a newbie but I noticed you know your stuff pretty well. Noticed also you've been an exchange student in Sweden. Talar du fortfarande svenska?

Hey, remember that I was only 17 at the time, and the guy and girl that the parents had were my age - the main thing we did was teach each other the best ways to swear. :)

I had been mapping a drive letter from within the xp virtual machine, to the "tsclient\c", so that I could write out of the virtual machine into the "real world" pc drive some important data that was then incorporated into a MS publisher document template via a macro, to create a "record certificate" for an archer that had set a national or world record. It occurs to me that I could probably do more maps, and then create shortcuts on the desktop, so that the entire set of data records existed on the "real" drive all the time. That would make it more readily available in the future, especially if something went south....
But your suggestion to make the second drive letter point to the old ("good") virtual database space, worked perfectly. First thing I did was to copy and paste ALL the folders to the new virtual machine, so I have essentially TWO copies of the important data....then I recreated some desktop shortcuts that established the right memory provisions and emulation rules. YAYYYYYYYYY!
I am back up and running, and have caught up on a lot of registrations I had fallen behind on! The tournament will be saved!

You have saved my sanity and I am very grateful! How may I repay my debt to you?

Just wait, I'll send you my bill. :)

Quite simple solution, happy it worked to you.

Oh my God.
I come to this point, "
"11. If the login is OK and you can enter XP Mode, go to XP Mode's Control Panel and add a password to XPMUser account, or create a new user account with password. After that, you can re-enable automatic integration from XP Mode's settings"
Oh no. Because I get the loginprompt. I log in, everything looks fine until it says "Integration disbled". But I CAN logon to windows!!!
