Log on to Windows XP
Hi, forum. I just downloaded the free Pocket Cloud application for my iPhone 3G, OS 4.2.1 yesterday. I tried installing the companion on my laptop which runs Windows 7, but it said that, since my laptop was running 64-bit, I couldn't install it, so I installed it on my desktop that runs XP.
After I signed into my Gmail account, it found my computer, and I clicked on it. But, then I got this window asking me to log onto windows XP with a user name and password. I don't know which password and user name it's talking about. None of my user accounts have one and I don't remember ever setting them up.
I'm new to all this stuff. I was wondering if someone could help me out. Please and thank you, forum.
Are you running Windows XP Home or Pro?
If it is Pro then follow these steps:
1) Go to Control Panel > Administrative Tools.
2) Open "Computer Management".
3) Click on "Local Users and Groups".
4) Click on "Users".
5) Right click on your account name and select "Set Password".
You will use that username and password to login to your computer from the PocketCloud app. Usually the username is "Administrator" but you will see for sure once you follow the steps above.
