Settiing up WindowsXP mode in Win7 64bit
Posted on 2011-09-26
I have set up Windows XP mode virtual machine on my Win7 64bit host computer. I also have installed a program that was incompatible with Win7. Both computers use Novell as a file server. I have installed Novell on the virtual machine and it correctly maps the network drives when i logon. The problem is when i try launching the application OR launch the virtual machine, it bypasses my Novell logon every time and goes straight to the local machine login (default XPMUser) and prompts for login. When I logon locally...it bypasses the Novell login and I dont have any of my network drives availabe. If I choose to logoff at this point, the virtual machine will logoff and return me to my Novell Login and I can login again...this time mapping my network drives. I do not have the login credentials saved. How can I set this up so it does not try logging in to the local machine and just behaves like i am starting the pc from scratch? And require me to login to Novell...as normal? Or when I choose to start the virtual application and not the virtual machine to require me to login...
