Unable to acess file system of host from guest vmware image

opike asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I'm unable to access shared folders of the host (windows 7) from  a guest vmware image (also windows 7). However I am able to do file sharing the other way (host can access guest). Networking for the vmware guest is set up using NAT. The windows login is what fails; I try to login with the same account that I use to login to the host OS when it boots up.
