I am trying to test an issue in an application in which the error only occurs on Windows XP. I have set up a Virtual PC XP instance on my Windows 7 machine. The application I am trying to test is a click-once .NET application that auto-logs-in the current user based on their network username and password.

Is there a way I can either link the XPMUser to my network user ID or just use my network user account in my Virtual PC instance?

Join your test VM to the domain and log in like you would any other machine. Don't treat a VM any differently than if it were a separate physical machine under your desk.
