The docs say this :

Check permission settings. Permission settings on the host computer determine access to files in the shared folder. For example, if you are running VMware Player as a user named User, the virtual machine can read and write files in the shared folder only if User has permission to read and write them.

My host is Windows 7. I am running another Windows 7 guest under the username Fake. According to the docs, I have to share my intended folder, say c:\share, by giving Fake the read permission, no? But I am unable to do that as the host says no such user is found. What am I doing wrong?

Ensure you have a matching user name ("Fake") and password on the share's host computer. Then you can apply the share/file access to that user account.
