    I have a VMDK I have been using for a while under VMWare Workstation in Windows, that I am now using in VMWare Fusion 4.1.1. I cannot get the VM to see the shared folders on the host. I am on a Macbook Air, using Lion 10.7.2. I have different user names in the VM and on the host, and am not sure if that is an issue.

    Windows says it cannot access the folders, and if I try to diagnose it says I don't have authority.

    Any suggestions?

    Added: If I am running a different VM under VirtualBox, I am able to access the shared folders in that VM.
