Greetings all

I rceently used MS SharedView for a demonstration, and experienced no problems.  However when I tried to use it, with a virtual PC, I had NO joy.

Any suggestions?

In advance, thanks!!

Can you confirm that Internet access is available from inside the virtual machine?
i.e can you surf web pages from within the VM?

If not, go edit -> settings -> networking and ensure 'local only' and 'not connected' is not selected (the others should work).

Good luck.

The VPC crashed - and the backup was corrupted.  We are going to have start from scratch.

So, I will close this question and re-post once we have managed to re-create our previous environment.

Thanks for your efforts!!
