I'm currently running the Windows 7 RC and trying to use VMWare Workstation's Unity feature with a Ubuntu 9.04 guest. Unity starts, and I can access the Unity "Start Menu" for Ubuntu within Windows, but when I launch an application, it does not appear in Windows. Interestingly, if I exit Unity, all the apps I launched (which didn't appear) are open within Ubuntu. Does anyone know how to get Unity working on Windows 7 RC?

  • Host: Windows 7 RC (x64)
  • Guest: Ubuntu 9.04 (x64)
  • VMWare Workstation 6.5.3
  • VMWare Tools 7.8.6 (Current)

You are not alone:

Seems to be an issue with Vista x64 and Windows x64 with Nvidia cards.

It is also possible that Sprint's SmartView software (for the 3G USB modems) may also be a factor. – Chris_K Jun 13 '10 at 3:40
