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: http://communities.vmware.com/thread/170546

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
