Vmware - Question on USB device passing.

1 post in this topic

Posted

On Vmware (Workstation or ESXi) you can send a physical USB device directly to the Guest machine as though its plugged into it and this generally works great.

However if the Host OS (in the case of Workstation) or the computer running vSphere client (in the case of ESXi) is for example Windows 7 x64 , and there is no driver for the USB device available on that computer. But the guest OS is Windows XP x86 and has drivers for that device, is there a way to pass the 'unknown' USB device to the guest OS and have it recognise and use it ?

Thanks in advance.
