    Hi,

    I need to connect my laptop to a virtual machine via HomeGroup. I can use any Virtual software but need to do it ASAP.

    Tell me what details you need and you can have them.

    Do you already have W7 installed into VMware.

    I assume networking connection is already set to "Bridged" and both the bridged VM connection and the laptop are connect to same router ? (or better hosted on laptop)

    I think both the VM and the laptop need to be "Home" network in the Network and Sharing window. Sometimes when I move my laptop it gets set to Unidentified Network (breaks HomeGroup).

    Gonna need more details if you want I do more than guess. Do not make me infract you :D

    Lol. I set it to bridged and they both connect to my Wireless router. They were both set to home. I disabled my AV for some reason. Its a pain!

    ok hard part is done, now go to network for sharing window and create the homegroup. Then you have to join homegroup from the second computer. That is all is to it. Very easy.
