5580 - Shared Mac Apps Wont Populate?

    This build seems to have fixed all of my issues except one. I can no longer get shared mac apps to populate and be seen in the windows vm like I could previously (e.g. dont have option to open a .doc file in the VM with iWork app). Odd thing is that I can open mac side docs with any windows VM app no problem.

    I've uninstalled and reinstalled the tools with no joy. Am I missing something to force mac apps to be seen in the VM now?

    Let me know if you find a resolution.

    A co-worker resolved this by uninstalling and reinstalling tools a couple times. This has not worked for me. At this point I seem to be depending on this forum for help.

    I was experiencing the same problem. I was able to resolve it by:

    1. Shut down VM.
    2. Disable Mac Application Sharing in VM Settings
    3. Start up VM.
    4. Shut down VM.
    5. Enable Mac Application Sharing in VM Settings
    6. Start up VM.
    7. Select Populate from Applications, Shared Mac Applications menu option.
    8. Wait a moment.

    Shared Mac Apps worked at this point.

    actually shared mac applications never worked for right me. neither on 10.5.1 nor on 10.4.10 i recently used with 5560 or 5570/5580.
    redsta's possible workaround hasn't helped either. kinda strange.
    it was working to an extent on 10.4.10 sometimes where only a few of my applications got registered in windows but never all of them i wanted to use.
