VisualRF Plan: Mac OS with VMware Fusion hosting Windows VM (RF Plan Initialization pop-up)

Goal:
You want to run VisualRF Plan tool off a VM from a Mac laptop.

Setup:
Mac OS with VMware Fusion. The VMware Fusion hosts either WinXP or Win7 VM.


Errors:
1. RF Plan Initialization (Please specify or create a data root directory for plan data).

Resolution:
1. From Mac side, go to VMware Fusion and disable folder sharing. This will cause the Windows VM to restart. Once VM comes back up, try to start VisualRF Plan.


Errors:
2. C:\Documents and Settings\(username)\.vrfplan.pref doesn't exist.

Resolution:
2. Attached is a zip of that file which you can drop into place, it will set C:\Program Files\VisaulRF Plan\data as the destination for VisualRF floorplans (granted you have access rights to write to the Program Files directory).
