I am about to convert my main pc to win7 pro 64bit. Unfortunately two of my main accounts programs are 32bit and will not work with 7 32 bit anyway. I decided to trial VMWarePlayer and installed it on my XPPro system without any problem. I then installed win 2000 pro onto it just to test the virtualisation capabilities. All went ok and I then installed Quicken 2000 onto the 2000. Once again no problems until I tried to enable the VMWare option to share folders on the host system. I need to be able to do that so as to access and backup my data files from within the virtual drive. The enable shared folders within "Options" is greyed out as per attached screen shot.
I would greatly appreciate any advice on how to resolve this problem.
