Cannot access account in Parallels 10 / Windows 8.1 environment
Attached images: Users&Groups.tiff and LostAccount.tiff will illustrate the issues. Users&Groups.tiff is the 'missing' account as here.
Parallels 10 / Windows 8.1
Program Name: User Accounts Control Panel
Verified Publisher: Microsoft Windows
File Origin: Hard drive on this computer
Changes to the above account [Jim Lacey] require administrator password - which is uknown. Previously a system malfunction (crash?) required a new account to be created using http://kb.parallels.com/en/114193 as a guide.
Now any changes (e.g. program upgrade) to JAMAROSX$, local [non-Microsoft] Account require a password for the 'missing' account. Also, Outlook 2007 requires 'Enter Network Password' before downloading mail.
LostAccount.tiff illustrates the login issue for the Users&Groups.tiff account - I don't know the password.
Seems there are 2 accounts, only one available at Windows 8.1 login from Parallels; the other I presume is the Mac account.
On Mac side (see Users&Groups.tiff) 'Would you like to change the password for "Jim Lacey", or begin using your iCloud password to login and unlock this Mac?' is offered as option. As there are only 3 Mac/Windows login passwords I use, since I work in a home office, I changed to iCloud password which was accepted, but did not help.
