Why do I get a setup error installing Windows XP Mode on a Windows 7 Pro. 64 bit computer?

I purchased a Droid smart phone and it comes with software (V Cast media manager) that runs on a 32 bit os not 64 bit.

I am trying to install Windows XP mode on a Windows 7 Professional 64-bit laptop (that is a member of a domain).

A window popped up trying to create credentials for XPMUser:

user:  XPMUser
password:

After I type in a password and click Okay, I get the following error:

The virtual machine configuration could not be created.  user does not have sufficient access rights.

What can I do to solve this problem?

The user was not a member of the Administrators group.  I fixed that and it solved the problem.
