Connecting to the internet using VMware


For some reason, I cannot find the Quicken CD in Virtual Windows.  Joe suggested I activate the CD icon at the bottom of the screen, which I did, but VW is still not recognizing it or not letting me see or find it.  Any ideas?  Thank you.

When you use VMware to run windows on your Mac, you do need to use the cd icon in the lower right of the vmware window to allow either operating system to control the optical drive.

You can also use the same window to select CD/DVD settings then choose to have vmware control the CD right at start up. Unless the disc is damaged, the Quicken disc should show. You may also try testing with a different disc to eliminate whether it’s the Quicken disc or software related.
