We have a Windows 7 workstation which we need to setup and run a virtual XP session on.  We need to run Quickbooks 2006 on this workstations virtual XP mode.  We went through the wizard for XP mode and it created a session.  We loaded QB within the sesssion but when we try to open the data file which is on the network it fails.  Since I have never set up this XP mode before I dont know if it was done correctly.  I want to be able to login to the network through the XP mode in order to gain access to the network drives.  When the seesion starts it defaults to a xpuser login with no domain listed.  If I try to login with any other user name it does not work.

Need some help on this one.

Thanks,

Ray

Your network drives from the host computer will be available on the xp mode virtual machine. They should show up as "C on PCNAME". They can also be access using the UNC path. For example "\\tsclient\c\Program Files"
