I created a VM guest by virtualizing my company laptop. I then copied this to my personal laptop and I'm running it in VMWare Workstation 15.1. I used the virtualizer free from VMWare and pointed to by their product. I deployed it on the company laptop, ran it, copied the results to my personal laptop via thumb drive and then opened it with VMWare.
Both my host and guest are Windows 10.
I can't copy and paste files between the guest and host and I'm guessing it's because VMWare Tools isn't installed (at least I think that's the issue). When I to install them the option is grayed out and I can't.
Is there something special/different about an image that comes from a clone? Neither had a DVD so neither can be fixed with the trick I've seen posted about playing with the CD/DVD options.
