Both suggestions are on our TODO list. Though drag'n'drop is not that easy to implement.

    initial v1  
    33A couple of suggestions, though not sure how hard to implement:

    5 * Ease the mapping, possibly something automatic: 
    6 Currently for windows guests, you have to share the folder as a temporary or fixed share.  Then in addition to that you have to go into windows and create a mapped drive for that share.  That second part I didn't know about because on the mac, from what I recall it maps the share automatically in parallels and vmware fusion.

    8 It would be nice if something default could be done, like a share automatically created and a shortcut created on the desktop of the windows guest.

    10 If not that, at least give information in the window that creates a share that additional steps are necessary to see the share on the guest, maybe a link to help or some verbiage in the window itself.

    12 * Be able to drag and drop files - in addition it would be nice to have a way to drag and drop files between guest and host transparently.  Again, not sure how hard this is, but I recall that vmware fusion did that on the mac.  It's extremely nice :).
