Windows 7: XP integration disabled

Virtual XP in Windows 7 Professional

Kari -

I very much appreciate your help. I had it for a day and while in the Administrator account, I saw the password screen and the option to eliminate the password. The dialog box said that if I did so, anyone could get to the system which is what I had for several months.

You know the result - I can't access XP. Is there any way to work around this?

I'm sorry I'm such a dunce and will either ask before I do anything again or, more likely, refrain from doing it.

Microsoft Virtual PC virtual machines, including XP Mode, require a password when Integration Components are installed and enabled. There are no workarounds. Simply:
  • Integration enabled > to login the user account used must have a password
  • Integration disabled > login possible also to user accounts which do not have a password
If you have removed the password from an user account in XP Mode and can't log in to it, log in to another user account with admin rights, goto XP Mode Control Panel > Users and set a password to that account with no password.

If you have removed the password from all user accounts with admin rights, boot XP Mode and when in login screen, disable Integration Features from Tools menu:

Now you can log in to accounts which have no password.

If you have problems to get in to the login screen or to disable Integration Features from Tools menu, close XP Mode and delete the hibernation file as told in my first reply, then disable Integration from XP Mode settings by deselecting Enable at startup as shown here:

Now start XP Mode, login with no password, goto Control Panel > Users and set password, enable Integration from Tools menu and everything will be fine again .

Option Two in this tutorial shows how to set a password for the built-in Administrator account: Windows XP Mode - Enable Built-in Administrator Account
