Using VMWare Fusion 8.5's shared folders feature, which creates a Public desktop shortcut file to "\\vmware-host\Shared Folders". Opening this shortcut file takes me to the correct location, however if I try to use explorer to go to "\\vmware-host\Shared Folders\", it does not work at all.
How is this even possible? I know that .lnk files can be kind of weird, but this just seems strange. To further complicate things it seems like I can
cd '\\vmware-host\Shared Folders' in PowerShell just fine. Maybe .Net is somehow aware of this "network" location, but COM/lower levels aren't?
I should also note that this is on macOS Sierra, the guest VM is Windows 10 build 1607.
