After a recent upgrade to the Veertu virtualization software, many users – including myself – have been surprised to find out that the Shared Folder with the Mac OS X host has all but disappeared into oblivion, re-installing the Guest Additions did not at all resolve the issue.
Browsing thru Veertu’s Knowledge Base I came across an article that described this particular problem and relates it to having the newer share folder driver signing done with SHA256 whereas Windows 7 only supports SHA128 out of the box (or at least, without much updating whatsoever).
Fixing it (thus getting back the Shared Folders) is rather easy:
- Fetch and install the respective updates from Microsoft:
- Reinstall the Guest Additions in your Virtual Machine
