Run VHD/VMCX without admin rights? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Is it possible to run Windows Virtual PC without Admin rights?

    My goal is to have basic users running a Windows XP VHD. I can install the application and set everything up using my admin credentials, but I want to leave the other users as basic or power users. 

    I've added the users to the power users group and given that group all rights to both the VHD and VMC files. The error the users get is that VPC cant write changes to the VHD. 

    To add, I'll need to use the integrated features as well. So even if there is a work around for the admin issue, I still need to ensure integrated features works too. 

    Can this be done?
