make sure the virtual machine's configuration allows the guest to open host applications?

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

Hi tristian2

Welcome to the communities.

I will suggest please check the firewall & user permission if that now work then you may go with hyper -v  ?

Because now a days Microsoft planning to provide one stop solution for all like security, visualization, backup etc.

Similar setup. In IIS Console on a Windows Server 2012 system, choosing the Browse link to open a web application, causes the error you are having. I fixed the issue by changing from "Default Host Application" set for the HTTP/HTTPS protocols in Default Programs, to "Internet Explorer".  See the attached image.

I had a similar problem that was solved by changing the default handlers for HTTP and HTTPS as detailed in this post:

I hope this helps

The crux of the solution you posted was already posted by JoeGasper in his reply Re: make sure the virtual machine's configuration allows the guest to open host applications?, so you obviously didn't read the entire thread before posting a solution that was already posted 5 months ago! Smiley Wink

Does anyone know a way to change the default handlers for HTTP/HTTPS protocols via GPO?

Did you try Google!? Smiley Wink  The following blog while not specific to HTTP/HTTPS nonetheless may help get you in the right direction.  Have a look at: Windows 8: Associate a file Type or protocol with a specific app using GPO (e.g:default mail client ...

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