    I have installed VMFusion Ware and then Windows XP. When I insert the CD to install Microsoft Office, nothing happens... I'm a very new MacBook Pro user and LOVE it but I need to use some Microsoft products for work. Any suggestions -- maybe this is something simple, I hope. Thanks!

    Try and open the cd drive from my computer. It should show up and have the setup or install file there.

    You need to make sure the CD drive is connected to VMware. From the VMware Fusion menu, go to Virtual Machine > CD/DVD > Connect CD/DVD. Now the CD icon will disappear from your OSX desktop and be accessible from Windows.

    Thank you! It worked!

    I did this and it was simple. I can see I have a lot to learn. How awesome to have virtual assistants out there.
