  1. I'm not sure if the use of the VM plays a role here. But since the OP mentioned it (and it would have helped to know which VM technology, MS Virtual PC?, VirtualBox?, VMware?), make sure your VMs are using compatible virtual network adapter configurations. For example, you wouldn't want a mix of bridged and unbridged (NAT'd) for each VM or else they would end up on different subnets.

    That aside, you’re back to all the usual checks; they must use the same workgroup name, be using the same subnet, no third party firewalls, each should be using the same username/password, yada yada.
  2. hello, thnx for your answer.

    as i mentioned its 2 Fresh installs of Windows XP Professional x64
    Both are in workgroup,
    Both use the same bridged network, Default settings i didnt change it,

    and as for your question im working with Vm Workstation.

    both on class C and the same subnet, cuz if it was different i cant Ping, right ?
    and they wont see each other at the first place.

    but as u saw there is one can connect and other cant.
