    Hi Paul,

    thanks for the Information i found out, that i cant use them.
    I run different Linux (Debian/BSD/Suse/Gentoo) flavors on
    our systems for testing purposes with virtual HDs. Now i wantet
    to listen to some music (starting broadcast with vlc to our other
    developers in our network from the Debian System running as
    SMB Server). So i wanted to load ogg files from a directory
    shared by guest and host system but this is in our situation not
    possible. They could be shared with Samba but i want them to
    be streamed from a virtual HD. I solved this by moving some
    files to a Virtual HD with Samba and vlc is streaming from it
    now...

    Thanks...

    Best regards

    VM Additions are included with VPC 2004. For a default installation,
    they are here:
    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Virtual PC\Virtual Machine Additions

    Once you have a support Windows OS installed, you can simply launch
    the VMA installer from the Action menu.

  6. Assuming you are running a Windows guest, use the Action Menu/Install or
    Update Virtual Machine Additions on the virtual machine's console (while the
    vm is running), as Steve indicates.
