    VMware player and XP

    Hi gang

    Happy new year

    right this probably cannot be done but here we go.

    i currently have windows XP running on vmware player. It works fine but the problem i have is, i would like to take a screen shot in the vmware player and then switch to the host machine (XP pro SP2) to paste the screen shot in to MS Word or MS Paint.

    I have installed the VMware tools which has allowed me to drag files and folders from the vmware player to the host machine. i can however copy text and paste in to MS Word on the host machine.

    hope that makes sense. so what i need to do is take a screen shot of something in vmware player and switch to the host machine to paste in to ms word.

    at the moment i could just save the image and then drag across to the host but that will take to long.

    cheers :?

    Screen shot/video grabber. It's designed for games (because they grab exclusive access of the video card and/or draw directly to the video buffer).

    Funnily enough, this is exactly what VMware does too.

    apparently vmware player should allow me to do a screen capture and paste in to ms word on the host machine. no in fo on the vmware forum to sugest a fix to the problem.
