Cannot access account in Parallels 10 / Windows 8.1 environment

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
CLSID: 86D5EB8A-859F-4c7B-2BD819B7A850

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.

How do I proceed to gain access to these items - or bypass the password requirement? As you have guessed, I really don't know what is going on!

A further complication: I changed by password to iCloud password [see attached Users&Groups2.jpg] and now Application history (e.g. Dreamweaver CS4) is lost!

Surely, my password issues have not done this! As there are only 2 accounts and I am the only user of this OSX/Parallels/Windows 8.1 installation, this Application data must be somewhere - but where?

So Far OK - have two accounts, each accessible with password.

However, I can no longer copy text from OSX, using CMD/C or CMD/X and paste to Windows App with CMD/V.

Also this copy process would work with CTRL/C, CTRL/X & CTRL/V.

Combinations of these commands also worked to copy OSX --> Windows. No More - this is a severe limitation.

For example, copying the KB URL below from MSIE to OSX Notes cannot be done.

In addition, Windows Outlook 2007 now requires a password to retrieve email from server. Here is a Microsoft KB: http://support2.microsoft.com?id=290684 I perhaps can use.

Still investigating...

This is how it works for me

Cut-and-Paste operations with OSX and WIN 8.1

In Parallels 10 / Windows 8.1 / NoteTab Pro...
