        I have the same problem with my brand new install of 2.01.  I did get Unity to work once - by accident, I think - and then no more.

        I can't go back in time to extract the old 2.0 vmtools since this is a brand new iMac which I've come to after years of Windows.

         

        Suggestions on how to get the older version of the tools?

        I'm thinking that I could download the 2.0 version since I bought it via download to start with, then try to find the part (an exe file, maybe?!?) for the tool, and then install that.

         

        I'm not geeky enough to do much more of that without help.

         

        So - ideas?? Will my idea work?

         

        Thanks, folks.

          You can either follow the directions in my reply Re: No Unity ...Can I simply downgrade?? and look at etung's reply directly after my reply or download and install Pacifist to extract the "windows.iso" file from the VMware Fusion 2.0 Download VMware-Fusion-2.0.0-116369.dmg file.

            Thank you all for the discussion.  I am using Unity finally.  I uninstalled the Fusion 2.0.1 and reinstalled 2.0.  I had to do some finagling to make it all work, but work it does.  I also found out more about the inner workings of a Mac, which I haven't really used since system 7.0!  Woody, thanks for the tip on Pacifist -  that's a great program and it makes my little Windows heart happy to be able to crack open files.  Nice program.

             

            Now - (and I'll post this in a different thread) - how do I get my guest machine to recognize my two external hard drives?!?

             

            Thanks all.
