I have MacBook Pro, I installed vmware fusion in it and installed windows and linux machines in vmware fusion.

However I cannot copy and paste between Mac and virtual machines or vice-versa.

Any help will be ver much appreciated.

Is cut and paste working on Window machines now?

Are you installing the tools as a super user ? If the install does not succeed then you will not have the cut and paste feature.
