All is progressing nicely with the SL configuration.
I have found that when I was trying to install VMWare Tools from the Workstation itself, a message telling me that none was available poped up. I recalled that the unlocker was supposed to put darwin.iso in the VMWare directory so that tools may indeed be installed directly but I may have misunderstood that.
So, I had an iso from prev attempts to get SL working, called darwin_snow.iso. I connected to this iso and was able to install VMWare Tools and hay presto, a complete list of resolutions for my screen appeared. I set the resolution to be near my screen res (the exact one was not listed), but interestingly from the client I can now show full screen but I think its not as sharp as it could or should be (not being the native resolution). My monitor is 1920x1080, and the one I selected inside SL (in SwitchResX4) is in fact 1680x1050. The Workstation (8) allows me to do full screen.
I got the above iso from http://www.redmondpi...dows-7-9140301/
Trying to get into unit mode (whatever that is) I get the following message: The virtual machine cannot enter Unity mode because:
- The guest operating system is running an out-of-date version of VMware Tools.
My impression is that its not yet sleek... it appears slow.
One thing I have noticed in the client setup was that the video option you refer to are not there. This may be, I wonder, due to the fact I do not have a separate video card but I use the built-in garphics.
I use to get hangs in SL which I tracked to happen in line with my power conservation settings. I have now turned it off in System Preferences/Energy Saver and no more hangs. I have left power management on the host (Windows 7 Ultimate x64) as is.
This is an interesting one. I always see my shares on a NAS and some other network hosts. I see these in the Finder. After some time, and it may be after pausing the guest, not sure, these shares no longer show in the Finder.
Cannot get any sound going as of yet, but will read through these pages for hints and report back.
I found a couple of programs that suppose to play wmv files, such as Gom Player and VLC Player, but both do not show the actual content. So some more work required there.

Are there any benefits in any components of this unlocker for anyone with existing SL install?
Thanks for all the brill work.
