I am running a Windows 7 vm with WMware player from Fedora. I have VMWare tools installed successfully and I have successfully some of it's features like Unity mode so it seems to be installed correctly. That being said I still cannot get urls to open up in my host machine's browsers, these are the steps I have taken:
- Within the vm I set "Default Host Application" to be the application to open urls.
- Within my host machine I have set Chrome to be my preferred application for opening urls.
- Enabled Shared Folders in the vm (Not sure if that really helped anything but I saw it suggested on a forum post)
After doing that when I click on a link I get the following error message:
Default host Application: Make sure the virtual machine's configuration allows the guest to open host applications.
I cannot find any option like that in my vm's configuration so I am not sure what the error message is referring to.
