Hyper-V and Windows XP

Reference: Greg Shultz - Make USB devices accessible to a Windows XP virtual machine 26 July 2013

I have setup Hyper-V on my PC running Windows 8.1 Pro. As per Mr. Greg Shultz several instructions, I installed three Virtual Machine (VMs); Windows 10 Technical Preview, Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit and Windows XP Home Edition 32-bit. The three VMs have access to the Internet. My PC and the three VMs are configured to use the exact same workgroup. In each of the three setups, I see my PC and the VM and vice versa.

I have problems with “Enabling Remote Connection” on two setups; Windows 10 Technical Preview and Windows XP Home Edition 32-bit.

Windows 10 Technical Preview. After the VM remote connection and the remote desktop connection are set up and I try to make the first connection, I enter my password, my user name being already there, but it said “Your credentials did not work”. I know I have the right name and password because they are the ones I used to log in into the Windows 10 Technical Preview VM. It happens to be my Microsoft Account credentials. My guess is that it is a Windows 10 issue, being a beta OS. I still can trial Windows 10 except I cannot have access to local resources such as USB flash drive or local PC drives.

Windows XP Home Edition 32-bit. When trying to enable remote connection under system properties, for some reason, I only get haft of that windows, i.e. the one about “Remote Assistance”. I do not see the “Remote Desktop” part as seen in above reference.

Answer anybody? Thanks
