Okay, this may be a stupid question, but I'm going to ask it anyway. I have recently made the move to Windows 7 SP1 for my primary development machine, with only a few "hiccups" along the way. I've finally gotten all of my development tools installed, but due to the fact that I have a number of legacy applications written in VB6 that are still requiring programming modifications from time-to-time, I've found that the best solution for my environment is to install the Windows XP VM with a copy of the VB6 IDE for compiling new executables from that code. Yeah, I know that there's a "backwards compatability" library available, but this method really seems to be a better solution for my situation for now.
Anyway, to the question. After a bit of shoe-horning, I was able to get the XP VM joined to the domain to provide access to all of the network resources I require for development. The only thing is that, anytime the window for my VM is "refreshed" (e.g., when the full screen window is restored down, or vice-versa), I'm prompted for my domain credentials over and over again. Is it possible to simply have the VM use the domain credentials from my already logged on Windows 7 machine? I can't really have it save the password due to password security policies in place that will require a password change every few months, so I'm trying to find a more effective solution. Thanks for your input.
