You can connect to shared VMs running on VMWare Workstation 8 if you configured your VMWare correctly. Host and client are both Windows 7.
One disadvantage of shared VMs is: The clipboard feature gets disabled for security reasons.
I don't care about security in this case. There are no sensitive data.
Is there a workaround or a trick to re-enable the clipboard for shared VMs?
What I've tried
I added the following parameters to my VMX file as it's suggested for VMWare vSphere.
But it doesn't work for VMWare Workstation. (VMWare tools is installed)
isolation.tools.copy.disable = "FALSE" isolation.tools.paste.disable = "FALSE"
Can anyone help?
