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.
What is FRAPS Geoff as our estemed LEa have denied me access to the domain?
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.
Unfortunately that did not work
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.
VM -> Capture Screen on workstation.... I haven't got player running at the moment.
