[McIDAS #JAV-781741]: McIDAS-X on Windows or Linux



Hi Kwan,

What antivirus package are you using?  Just curious...

The ability to mount Windows file systems in the virtual machine is
controlled by VMware Tools.  Every time the kernel gets upgraded in
my CentOS 6.9 virtual machine, I need to rerun the configuration script
that is part of VMware Tools to restore the mounts.

re:

Find and run the VMware Tools configuration script as 'root' inside of
your virtual machine.

I am not sure why you tried this as it is not necessary.

The VM image(s) are not Windows executables, so they really don't
belong under the Program Files directory hierarchy.  VMware Player,
on the other hand is a Windows executable, so it is likely that
you will find it under that hierarchy.

re:
> By the way, are you using Windows 7 or 10?

I am still using Windows 7 on my Dell Studio 14 laptop since it runs
great, and it is still fully supported by Microsoft.  I tried upgrading
to Windows 10 (after duping my system disk so I had an easy backout
strategy), and it did not support my Bluetooth card, so I reverted.
I bought a replacement WiFi/Bluetooth card with the intention of
upgrading what I have, but I simply have not gotten around to doing
the upgrade.  My current thinking wrt upgrading to Windows 10 is
why bother -- my laptop is now over 7 years old, and I will probably
buy a new one in the not too distant future, so why not simply wait.

Cheers,

Tom
