from a VM, how do I access the host file system? I am running a Windows XP VM on a Windows XP host machine.
I am sure that I used to be able to click on "my network places" and ".hostShared folders on .host", and then be able to access the host file system - but now I just get the message "
.host\Shared Folders is not accessible".
Hi, thanks for the replies. I found out that I when I have my laptop (where I run my windows XP + VM) at work then I can connect from the VM to the host OS (via windows file sharing) - but if I am at home then I cannot connect to the host OS? What causes this? Is there some sort of effect caused by what network the host OS is connected to?
