Now we want to configure the VM to access files from the Base Computer. For that purpose we will use the folder icon located below the start button.
Fig6: Accessing the folder to the base computer
We can create an access to a folder on the computer by right clicking on the folder icon. You will get the following screen.

Next select the drive letter you want to give the share, the default is Z, but you can select others not already in use. Find the folder that you want to share. In our example, we want the downloads folder that is on the C:\ drive of the local machine.

On the local machine, the drive letter will be “Z." You can use the start button, explore and access the material. In the same vein, you can access the local CD Rom drive to install other applications. Now you are ready to configure your VM to run the application that you want.
