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?

Otherwise more information provided on your part may be more helpful then the brevity of your current query!
