inside the VMware virtual machine I'm running Windows 7 as guest OS. Since my computer is not very powerful,I can't hear mp3 songs using winamp there,because it is resources hungry. So,I would like to play mp3 songs launching winamp from the command line inside the guest OS and I want that it run outside the VM,on the host OS (Windows 7,too). I'm using psexec.
I tried this :
c:\temp\psexec \\MARIETTO2008 "c:\program files\winamp\winamp.exe"
but it run winamp with the gui and I don't need it,I want that winamp play an mp3 song by invoking the mp3 file name from the command line,like this : winamp.exe e:\downloads\mp3\rock\go go go.mp3.
it should be something like this :
c:\temp\psexec \\MARIETTO2008 "c:\program files\winamp\winamp.exe e:\downloads\mp3\rock\go go go.mp3"
but it doesn't works because the syntax of the file name of the directory or volume is incorrect
c:\temp : it's the location of the ps tools on the guest OS
MARIETTO2008 : it's the name of the host OS
c:\program files\winamp\ : it's the location of winamp on the host OS
e:\downloads\mp3\rock : it's the location of the mp3 on the host OS
"go go go.mp3" : is the name of the mp3 to play
the guest OS shares drive C: and the host OS shares drive C: and E:
