I have a VM built in Windows XP SP2 .  I have opened the VM in my Laptop .  I  am able to ping  from the VM to my Laptop , but I am not able to get the shared files from my laptop ( Infact , It doesn't even identify the Laptop)  . I tried  VMWare setting for Network Adapter as Bridged/NAT/Host only . But all give same result

My Laptop OS  is Windows 7
In the IpConfig /all , I don't see any IP address  assigned ( This might be the fundamental reason)
Please see the attachment for the Ipconfig

Any help to have the  fileshare possible is highly appreciated
