Shared Folders inaccessible from Windows 7 guest on Windows Vista 64-bit host -> fixed in 2.1.2

Description

I have Guest Additions installed. I have created a shared folder called MySharedFolder. I am unable to access it from within the Windows 7 guest.

I have tried attaching it to a drive letter by typing "net use d: \vboxsrv\MySharedFolder". This works under a Windows Vista guest, but not under Windows 7.

I have also tried navigating to \vboxsrv\MySharedFolder in Windows Explorer. This did not work.

I also have Windows 7 in a guest with additions installed, and I cannot see ANY of my network shares.

Please attach the VBox.log for the session where you are trying to access the shared folder.

correct me if i'm wrong but i've noticed that shared folder resides under .VirtualBox folder in AppData, in Windows 7 filename starting with dot(.) is not accepted.

just a wild guess... coz i'm also suffering from the shared folder problem...

This issue will be solved in 2.1.2. In Windows 7 filenames started with a dot (.) are definitively supported.

Please report back if 2.1.2 is not working for you then.

I've given a look at [15967] and tried it on 2.1.0, but with no success. Is really changing the VBoxGuest service properties all what is required to make shared folders work under a Windows 7 guest?

Forgot to mention: it's the x64 flavor of 7, running on a x64 Linux host.
