Copy-Paste / file sharing between Ventura and Windows 11 ARM doesn't work

Jump to solution

Hi  everyone, 

discovered that Copy/Paste between macOS Ventura and Windows 11 ARM doesn't function properly.

I gave up after many reinstalls of VMware tools. The same - for files ands folders drag and drop...

May be there's some workaround to solve this issue? Also cannot find where I could report this problem to VMware.

Any suggestions are welcome here and thank you in advance!

Just found an unofficial paper from VMware here

https://communities.vmware.com/t5/VMware-Fusion-Documents/The-Unofficial-Fusion-13-for-Apple-Silicon...

So these functions aren't working by default. 

Hope they'll be activated soon.

Fusion 13 running on Apple Silicon Macs does not implement the following features found on Fusion 13 running on Intel Macs: • Import and export of .ova and .ovf files • Conversion of virtual machines from Parallels • Virtual printers • Nested virtualization (Apple hardware and API restriction) • Copy/Paste and Drag/Drop for Windows 11 ARM virtual machines • Fusion shared folders for Windows 11 ARM virtual machines • 3D accelerated graphics for Windows 11 ARM virtual machines • Virtualization of any version of macOS

The only current workaround that the community has discovered is to use a Remote Desktop session into the VM. That will allow copy/paste to the VM.

This requires the VM to be running Windows 11 Pro or Enterprise, as Remote Desktop sessions are not supported by Microsoft for Windows 11 Home.
