      Hi,

       

      i am trying to do sharepoint 2013 development on a windows 2012 virtual machine.  when i execute a simple application using visual studio 2012, i get an error "Make sure the virtual machine's configuration allows the guest to open host  applications".

       

      So i cant complete any work.  i followed advice on found at http://web2.minasi.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=39825.

       

      That didnt work, but removing VMWare tools completely did.  I can now execute my project.  However the usability of this is dreadful.

       

      will i have to resort to another virtualisation product such as Virtual box or Hyper v?

       

      thanks
