Is there a way to create a Windows 7 Pro XP Mode Virtual Machine without a password

I am stuck and need some help.  And, I can't move on until I get it.  

I am running Windows 7 Pro (64bit).  I want to use XP Mode and Windows Virtual PC which is a feature of 7 Pro.  I am in the process of creating the machine.  The below screen shows the dialog box I have.  I do NOT want to enter a password.  I don't use one on my Windows 7 machine and I don't want one for the XP Mode Virtual Machine.  But, as you can see, the NEXT button is not an option.  It stays grayed out unless you enter a password, which I don't want to have.  Is there any way to add this Virtual machine WITHOUT entering a passwored?  Or could I enter one and then delete it somewhere so there isn't one?  

I figure I can add a password and then set the XP Mode to remember it or not ask for it.  BUT, I PREFER, if it is possible, to create the XP Mode machine with no password.  Is this possible?  Thanks!  Gary

It gets stored in your credential manager, so you will not have to enter it when launching xpm....

Just enter a password. You won't have to enter it again if you keep the 'Remember Credentials' box checked.
