hi guys

I'm using Vmware Fusion to install a Windows 7 VM. I did that on a User A profile. When I log on to the User B profile, I want to be able to load that same exact VM without having to install it again. I even shared out the files from User A for User B to be able to see.

I select 'Create New' and 'Use An Existing Virtual Disk', but all of the Vmdk files are greyed out.

How would you do this?

Thanks
Yashy

Move the virtual machine folder and files out of the Profile, into shared storage space, that User A and User B can access.

I did that. It's in the 'Shared' area. I've attached a screenshot.
