Linux (64-bit) host, Windows 7 64-bit guest: can't execute files from shared folders
|Reported by:||qberkenbilt||Owned by:|
With a Linux (debian 64-bit) host and a Windows 7 64-bit guest, I've enabled shared folders. Most access works fine, and the performance is great. However, I am not able to execute programs (.exe, etc.) or do certain other operations such as opening pdf files by double-clicking on them. Instead, I have to copy the folders locally in order to operate on them.
I have seen other reports similar to this with Windows host and Linux or Solaris guest that can be resolved by specifying permissions at the time of mounting, but I don't see any options like this for attaching a Windows share. (My Linux experience is much deeper than my Windows experience.) I know that when sharing a volume on Windows, you can set things up this way, so perhaps this is intentional. My shared folder is set as "full" access.
