Disable Smart Card Sharing

Posted by: martinl | January 25, 2013 |

The ability to share smart card reader among VM is supposed to be a good thing. But the implementation in VMware workstation 8 seems imperfect. With the virtual reader enabled, my smartcard application frequently failed to access to the smartcard. Fortunately, you may disable the sharing by modifying the config file at,

C:\ProgramData\VMware\VMware Workstation\config.ini
