VMware Communities

Problem with shared folders in Linux Guest on Windows7 host.

I installed the VMware tools in a Linux Guest. During installation the system complained that it could not find the kernel headers of the running kernel, but at the end there was a message " The configuration of VMware Tools 8.4.6 build 385536 for Linux for this running kernel completed successfully", so I suppose that it is installed correctly.

For testing I specified a shared folder TEMP corresponding to c:\TEMP on the host. It seems to be OK in the settings, but the problem is that I cannot see the shared folder in Linux. According to the documentation it should be in /mnt/hgfs by default, but this directory is empty.

Is there some additional step I have to do or did I miss something?

Thanks for any hint.
