    v87 v88  
    100100  ''(Fixed since !VirtualBox 1.5.6)'' 
    101101 
    102 == Windows Vista guests == 
     102== Windows Shared Folders == 
    103103 
    104  * There is no networking in Windows Vista guests initially because, unfortunately, with Vista, Microsoft dropped driver support for the virtual AMD PCnet card that we are providing. See "Troubleshooting" -> "Windows guests" in the [wiki:"Downloads" User Manual] for a solution. 
    105    The !VirtualBox Guest Additions contain the AMD PCnet driver.[[BR]] 
    106   Starting with !VirtualBox 1.6.0 we provide an Intel Pro PRO/1000 device emulation which should be recognized by Vista. 
     104 * I cannot see my newly created shared folder under "My Network Places". 
     105   Under Windows 2000 they're visible, but not under Windows XP / Windows Vista. This is because of the standard settings of these two. 
     106 
     107 To get it working the way it was, just do the following steps: 
     108 
     109  1. Open the Explorer 
     110  2. In the menu go to "Tools" and select "Folder Options" 
     111  3. Under tab "General" activate "Use Windows classic folders" 
     112 
     113 Now the "Entire Network" as well as the shared folder entries are visible again.
