Re: How to properly mount your home folder in VMWare Fusion for doing development work

2018-04-13 Thread Bob Sneidar via use-livecode
I have an issue with Parallels and their folder sharing feature. I *think* they 
are using a kind of folder redirection. It takes forever to do anything in a 
Windows app in the VM. It runs much better on a real workstation, although I 
must say not as fast as on MacOS. Not sure why the engine is so much faster on 
MacOS.

Ahh…good to know. Glad they are aware of the issue. Nice to have a workaround.

The person I worked with had personally talked to the person responsible
for that feature. They are working on it but it is not a simple fix so I
wasn’t given any sort of timeline.

Did they say untying about fixing the shared folders feature? Or is this 
intended behavior? This used to work years ago.
