Host: Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Guest: Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Office 2007 requires designating a folder as a "Trusted Location" to run Office products VBA code without having to authorize it each time. You can setup a folder on a network as a "Trusted Location".

VB Shared Folders show up in the normal Explorer browse of the Network. They do not show up when browsing the Network from within Trusted Locations.

To see the problem:

  1. Assigned a shared folder to a VM with Windows 7 as a guest and Office 2007 installed.
  2. Started the VM and then open an Office 2007 product.
  3. Open Trust Center Settings. (In MS Access Office Button-->Access Options-->Trust Center-->Trust Center Settings
  4. Click on Add New Location and then Browse. The Shared Folder will not be shown in the Network.
