    Hi everyone,

    I am creating a standardized Windows 10 VM that we will deploy to multiple employees who need to use Windows on their Mac. I created a local Windows account within the VM called "ParallelsUser", which users will log in to. However, when I copy the .pvm to another Mac for testing and start the VM, Windows always tries to log in with the original username that was created when i first created the VM (see screenshot). This username is the same username on the Mac where I created the VM. Even though this "guyincognito" account no longer exists on the Windows side (i removed the account from Settings; there is no folder in the Users folder for it either), the .pvm is retaining it somehow and want to try login with it first.

    Is there a way to remove it so that the only account the end users will see when they start the VM is "ParallelsUser"?
