I'm running VMWare Workstation 7 and I want to use the "vmware-unity-helper.exe" utility. Does this utility work in windows? I've found several articles that say that it does not work with VM Workstation 6.5 but nothing on 7.
Take a look at this article.
I tested it by using Windows 7 as host and Windows 2000 as guest system with VMware Player 3.1.2. Then entered Unity manually and drag the shortcut of my application from the virtual start-menu to my Desktop. The shortcut works well as soon as my virtual pc was started.
