No option to create VM

When i open the Virtual Machines folder in my account, it doesnt have the option to create a new virtual machine. Any ideas?

I'm not at all familiar with using XP Mode VM's but this tutorial seems to outline the workaround you're using. Maybe there's a step you're missing.

That is the one im using. And iv followed it before, but forgot to go through the activation workaround, so i have to do it over again, but now it wont let me create a VM.

I had an idea. Is there a way I can add a right click option to create a new virtual machine? I would just need the link info of the Create new Virtual Machine link that would normally show up.
