Windows 7: Virtual XP mode.. how to become Administrator?

@crimson, to login in to Windows XP, the integration features is using Remote Desktop and to log into a Windows machine from the network there must be a password unless..."Accounts: Limit local account use of blank passwords to console logon only" is set to disabled. You will need to turn off integration though the Tools menu. The Administration account probably does not have, "Allow log on through Remote Desktop Services" permissions. Turning off integration will use a more conventional virtual machine means.

What do you mean? How do I set that "Accounts:" thing to disabled, and how do I turn of integration? There is no tools menu. What do I have to do?

No there is no menu for that. What are you using?
I'm using the download from Windows:
Download Windows XP Mode

Here is what it looks like fullscreen:

I'm using Windows Virtual PC, I installed it before I installed "XP Mode" however.
Are you using the latest version?

crimson, you are in Full Screen Mode..

Just click the middle button between the the "X" button and the Minizme button it is called "exit full screen"

(it will put XP Mode in a window instead of full screen) .then you should have the tools drop down menu..

Hope this Helps..

It won't do anything when I click it. It just stays in fullscreen. How do I get out of fullscreen?
