I have installed Ubuntu 13.04 in Vmware workstation in my windows7 OS. I installed VMware tools in Ubuntu.

I have configured the shared folders in settings. Using the below command, I am able to get shared folders


But the shared folders are not present /mnt/hgfs

I tried to install Vmware tools multiple time but no luck.

What problems did you have installing VMWare tools? I had a similar problem. After installing VMWare tools, I followed these instructions: How do I mount shared folders (win7 host) in Ubuntu (guest) using VMware(tools v6)

Running the vmware-config-tools.pl ( sudo vmware-config-tools.pl ) again, then rebooting solved the problem. The files are in /mnt/hgfs/[shared folder name]
