Having trouble with the PC user name and password step during VMWare Fushion (migrating Windows 7 home from the PC to a Macbook Air).
I receive the following message: "Converter failed to connect to remote machine. Cannot complete login due to an incorrect user name or password."
Made pw on the PC specifically for this step but it is still not working.
Is there anything I can do?
First, since you need a legal, retail windows 7 license for a virtual machine anyway, you're always better off building a VM from scratch - converted VM's are always bloated, buggy, and unstable.
But if you want to try converting anyway, use the standalone vmware vcenter converter instead of the over-the-wire wizard. It's much more reliable.
ok .. i just had the same problem... and did this to figure it out for the user name:
my user name is WOW and password is *****
and that did not work.. . IT is not the user name vmware is looking for...
in windows 7
go to control panels
to Administrative tools
to System configuration
i then double clicked the larger profile and it gave me the file path in the Change profile type.
So in mine said ..
When party mike\mikeparty logs into this computer...... etc etc
so i used the user name 'mikeparty'
and the password i use when i log in to windows 7
and that worked.. .
copying now... i also just purchased windows 8 from
web site.. downloading it now. and give you free download of windows 10 if you ever want it.
