VMware issue

Ever had an issue where the guest OS has trouble copying files from the host OS? It will start, and then cut out.

Check the event viewer on the host. If you see bunch of Denial-of-Service warnings/errors, then you have found your problem. You need to turn off DOS on the host as follows. Now I am sure some would say that you are opening yourself up to some security problem, but I always trade security for convenience, so here is what you do.

1. Launch regedit, and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanManServer\Parameters

2. Create a new DWORD Value called DisableDos, and set its value to 1.

3. Maybe reboot to make sure.
