Applications :: Moving / Copying Files From Mac OS To XP VMware Fusion

Sep 19, 2008

How can I get files from the Mac OS side over to the VMware/Windows side where I can work on them with Windows apps?

Moving files from Windows XP/VMware Fusion to a destination on the Mac OS side is as easy as dragging files over to Finder and dropping them when the Finder window becomes active. However, I haven't been able to do the reverse operation.

There's got to be an easy way to move files from the Mac side over to XP/VMware.. But I might lose my mind before I discover it.

Windows On Mac :: Transferring Files From VMWare Fusion To BootCamp?

Nov 23, 2009

I've been looking everywhere for an answer to this question and I'm really stumped. I've installed Bootcamp as I've realised Fusion is no good for gaming, however. I can't download all of my games again off steam due to a cap on my internet.

I've looked everywhere and is there anyway I can copy and paste the program files from my current virtual machine onto my new bootcamp machine?

Applications :: How Do Open A DVD With VMware Fusion

Sep 27, 2009

I have a DVD for my physics class that only can be opened in Windows for whatever reason (I also have a game I want to use). OS X recognizes it, but when I boot into Windows 7 (RTM Build 7600) in VMware Fusion, I see no sign of it.

How do I open it?

Applications :: VMware Fusion Performance ?

Jan 10, 2010

Running Fusion on my 2+ year old MBP has become a near hopeless frustration. When I first got the machine, it ran pretty well, but it hasn't for quite awhile now. It tends to be sluggish to the point of uselessness. Currently, I'm doing a trial of Fusion 3. I'm a licensed owner of the prior versions.

I don't need it much, but when I do, I really need it. I gave up on using it with Windows 7, which is fine, XP will do. Once in awhile, I'll run it and all will be well. Other times, most of the time, it's unusable. I see no pattern to what makes it run well or not. Earlier today, I rebooted and started Fusion all by itself and didn't run anything else. Didn't help much.

Anyone had these problems and found a solution? I see lots of people with problems and plenty of others without. But not many who've bridged the gap.

OS X Yosemite :: Finder Moving Files Not Copying?

Dec 5, 2014

I have been using a mac for over 15 years but this one has me stumped. 

When coping files I have always held down 'option' to copy the file. A small green plus symbol appears and the files then copy into the target folder, or hard drive. 

I have a Mac Pro, with the latest updates of Yosemite .... but now the files are moving and NOT copying.  

So when I back something up, they are no longer in the original location, only where i have copyied them to. They disappear. 

Should I be using cut and paste instead?

PowerMac, OS X Mountain Lion

Windows On Mac :: Moving Windows 7 From Fusion To Boot Camp Without Losing Files And Software?

Oct 24, 2009

Last night I installed VMWare Fusion and Windows 7 on my Unibody MBP running SL. When I use Fusion, my computer slows to a crawl. I spent a few hours getting Windows set up and installing software last night.

I would like to try using Boot Camp instead, but do not want to lose all of the software and files that I have installed. Is it possible to set up Boot Camp, and keep the same Windows setup?

Mac Pro :: Using Boot Camp And VMWare Fusion Together

Jan 29, 2008

Hello, everybody. I just discovered this forum, having finally taken the plunge and bought a Mac Pro to replace an aging Dell PC. (My wife has had a MacBook Pro since early last year, which is what convinced me to switch.)

My main use for the new machine will be photo processing, including astrophotography. I will obviously be able to use Photoshop natively, but will have to use Windows for one or two astro packages (and also for occasional use of an old Windows version of Mathematica).

So, my questions:

Am I right to think that it is possible to install Windows with Boot Camp and then also use the same Windows install under Fusion? If so, is there anything special that needs to be done when first doing the Boot Camp install?

OS X :: Internet Not Working With VMWare Fusion?

Apr 23, 2008

I did a search on these forums, but came up with nothing. I have two virtual machines set up with VMWare Fusion, one is my Boot Camp partition for Windows XP Professional, the other is Mandriva Linux. In both of these virtual machines, the internet doesn't work. I tried changing the network settings for VMWare Fusion to both NAT and bridged, and neither of them work. It's a little annoying because there's not too much you can do without an internet connection.

OS X :: Installing Windows 7 RC Through VMware Fusion?

Jul 29, 2009

I have the Windows 7 RC .iso (it's 64bit, I should have that one, right? Macs are 64 bit not 32 bit?) file and I want to install it through my VMware fusion app. Please note, this is NOT the beta for Windows 7, it's the newer RC.

How in the world do I do this? Some online guides say to set it as Windows Server 2008 x64, others say Windows Vista 64.

Could someone take me through the process of installing it? Or link me to a video or proven article? Setup goes through usually but the next time I boot into Windows 7 it tells me there was an installation error and Windows could not find the startup disk.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: VMWare Fusion 3 Won't Run After 10.7.4 Update

Then I could recover some files from WinXP.  (Last backup of WinXP is a couple weeks old).Other?

Windows On Mac :: Can I Boot From A VMWare Fusion Instance

Oct 9, 2010

I have Windows 7 installed in VMWare fusion. Is there a way to directly boot from that installation into non-virtualized W7? Would bootcamp or something be able to read and boot from that installation?

I want to boot directly into W7 for gaming. The virtualized performance isn't really cutting it.
