The group membership for <ComputerName\UserName> could not be updated : When updating an existing user, adding him to the 'Power Users group'. VoG™ i have xp home and can NOT use the Userpasswords2 applet to add or modify users in Windows XP Home Edition. This tool is reserved for Windows XP Professional Edition.
The Userpasswords2 applet allows access to the Power Users group which is NOT a built-in group in Windows XP Home Edition.
To add or edit a user in Windows XP Home Edition, use Control Panel / User Accounts, which does NOT show the Power Users group.
