Hi, didn't know if "net use" work on Reactos. But to know what virtual path you must use is dependent on the Virtual Machine, so my Question to you. What for a Virtual Machine do you use? e.g. qemu, Vmware, virtualbox, boch, ...

Borneq,
the easiest way is creating an .Iso with your files in it. Load the .iso in your Virtual Machine Cd driver. In Ros, open the CD driver,u will see the Files inside ;)

An alternative is to create a physical partition on your hard drive on your computer, and map a VMWare drive to that particular partition.

An easy (but limited)idea is using your email account :D

Upload your files to ur email account from ur Pc
Then open ur email account in Ros, download them.

This process works in both ways: PC->VM, VM->PC

just use it if u dont know how to go the other options ;)

Or you could use VDK to mount the virtual disk and manipulate it that way.

VDK works only old VMware :( and no net environment in my ReactOS.
One obvious way is creating .iso, it allow to run my .exe inside virtual machine, but it works with only one direction, how take file from virtual machine? How do it ReactOS developers? In VMware is possibility shared folders if we install special tools - this tools also speedup, not works with ReactOS; I prefer Qemu - exists special tools for ReactOS under Qemu?
How works kqemu ? How can debug ReactOS?

Too much questions :D
Lets see...usually we dont copy files from Ros to Pc. We usually use PC->ROS.You can try Lone_Rifle option,or the one i told u: uploading to the Net and then retrieving from PC. You can use your email account or any free server.

About Debugging, take a look in our Wiki.The wiki is full of Debugging and Testing help ;)

hi
you can use the reactos test environment and mount the virtual disk using VDK

the slickest way might be to run an ftp server on your pc (like filezilla for example.) Then you could use firefox inside ROS to read/write any files that you decide to share.
