Hello All,

1) I have installed esxi and vcenter.
2) I logged on the vcenter server and uploaded win xp iso to local data store
3) Created one virtual machine using vsphere client.
4) I installed the vmware tools on win xp. By right clicking on vm -->Guest --Install/Upgrade VMware tools
4) The win xp is up and working fine.

Question: Suppose if i want to install ms office/any third party application on VM(win xp). How to upload a software or folder to vm(win xp)?

This can be achieved in vmware workstation by clicking on VM --> Settings-->Options--Shared Folders -->There, we will select always enabled and clicking add button.


Please suggest me

You can simply admin share to your VM (\\vmname\c$\path_to_place_install_files)

If you have an ISO or something like that, you can upload it to a Datastore (rt-click on Datastore > Browse Datastore), then click the 'upload file' toolbar icon and upload the file. You then configure your VM's D: drive (rt-click on VM > Edit Settings > CD Drive) to use an 'ISO' then browse to the ISO on the particular Datastore you uploaded the ISO to. Your VM's D: drive will then 'see' the ISO.

Regards.
