apathy said:I can see what he means, VM's are the kind of thing you probably don't set up too often so you can forget certain things like shared folders, and IIRC you need to mess with USB settings to be able to access a memory stick (but it's been about 2 years since I last set one up so maybe I'm wrong there)
Tbh I'm not surprised the freeware stuff makes it more of a "pain" than the paid software for basic tasks.apathy said:That's pretty interesting. In VirtualBox you have to click the Machine tab > Settings, click the Shared Folders tab in the window that appears, click the "New" icon, then a new window will appear that has a dropdown that opens the file browser for you to create the folder. It's not difficult obviously but it's a bit more out of the way than what you're describing with VMWare. I've only ever had to set up like 3 VMs before so for people like me it'd be nice if they asked about it in the setup wizard.
