VMWare Workstation 6.5 bugs on Windows XP SP3?
- Windows XP SP3, Office 2007, IE 7, Firefox, Dell D630 Intel Duo Core with 2GB of RAM, 60 GB Hard drive
- VMWare Workstation 6.5 running Fedora 9 with X windows or Ubuntu 8.10 base OS, no other apps running
With just one VM running here is what happens to the host
- Accessing C:\ drive takes noticeably long – is there a file system filter driver in the IO path even when the VM is not running ? There seems to be a non-linear path name resolution / drive mapping logic.
I should figure out whether I can report this somewhere on the VMWare site. They’ll most likely ask for a VM snapshot of my laptop, recursive packaging of VM’s – wonder what new behaviors that will expose?
