Unable to Add a Vista Business Local User Account
Posted on 2009-05-03
When I try to add a local user in Vista Business, I get the following message at the end of the Add User wizard:
"The user <the name of my computer>\<the user name I'm trying to create> could not be added to the administrators group because <the name of my computer>\<the user name I'm trying to create> does not exist."
I get this error message regardless of whether I'm logged into Windows with a domain account or a local account. Note: I'm at home and therefore not actually logged into the domain at my office. Does that matter? Shouldn't I be able to add a local user even if I'm not connected to the domain?
Thanks so much....
