Yes. It is enabled.
I can share a file from the Vista machine to the C drive of my 98SE machine
(entire drive is shared) by just grabbing it and dropping it on whatever
folder I want it in using Explorer. But when I try to drop a file from
Vista on the Host machine, or another XP Pro machine running on VMWare
Workstation 5.5, I get that darn Destination Folder Access Denied error. Why
can I drop it on the 98SE machine but not the XP ones?
My VMWare XP Pro machines can see all machines EXCEPT the Vista machine. My
98SE computer also cannot see the Vista machine although it sees the other
machines on the network.
So, currently, I can share a file from the Vista machine to the 98SE
machine, but not to the XP machines, and no machine can see the Vista
machine while it can see all the other machines.
