the vmlite program is successfully working with windows xp running on a windows 7 host.

the host physical system is a laptop

the guest os does not recognize that i have a wireless adaptor on my laptop.. so there is no sign of wireless connection on the xp guest os... how can i make this appear?

and how come there is no H:/ drive? (for connecting to HOST OS C: Drive)
thanks

you don't use those physical network cards directly inside vm. The vm uses emulated devices, instead.

If your host network is working, your XP guest OS should have network too. You can change network adapters from Device > Network adapater menu.

How did you create this vm? from VMLite Wizard?

you can try to run this command inside vm:
net use H: \\.host\sfs

i try to change my adaptor to the one my laptop uses, but it is under "Bridged Adapter". does that make a difference?
under Devices -> Network Adapter, it says Adapter 1 is enabled and is attached to Bridged Adapter and the name is Atheros AR5009 WiFi Adapter.

in VMLite Workstation under details it says "PCnet-FAST III (Bridged Adapter, Atheros AR5009 WiFi Adapter)

and in the actual Guest OS itself, under network connections, there's only one icon that states that a network cable is unplugged

*created from workstation, (New VM, then used windows cd)

as for the command, thanks al ot, the command completed successfully and worked!

another question, can i run programs that are located on my Host C:/ drive from the Guest OS? by the way, under Devices -> Sharing Folders -> Machine Folders, there was nothing located under Machine folders

yes, that's the correct network settings. Your vm's network should work even when attaching to NAT. Can you browse internet from vm?

unfortunately, no again.
the guest os thinks that there is cable not plugged in and that there is no wireless adapter.

by me typing this right now to reply to your post signifies that my wifi works well..
