I am using Windows Virtual PC under Windows 7 Ultimate. My VM starts up fine and goes to the login screen, but when I try to enter my current network password it says it is incorrect. However once I enter an older password I can log on fine. The problem though is once I try to access network folders I get verification errors. The VM does not seem to recognize either the network or that my password is changed. Does anyone know what is going on here?

This can be caused by incorrect network setup of either the Virtual PC Server or the running virtual pc.

I assume it is a domain login.

You need to fix your network settings.

Yes, it is a domain, and I assumed it was a network issue. I have tried all the network settings I could think of... – D J Aug 26 '10 at 22:34
Networking is a mess in Virtual PC - it can be disturbed by Firewalls. Even having multiple network interfaces can cause trouble sometimes. I've quit using it since VirtualBox works a lot better (without the networking trouble). – Andreas Rehm Aug 26 '10 at 23:05
