    I'm having an issue with VMware and Windows 7 64-bit. I was running VMware with Windows XP 32-bit, but having since installed Windows 7 64-bit. I am not able to get VMware to work with the 64-bit version of Windows 7. I believe this is because when I installed VMware I selected the 32-bit OS option because this was what I had when I was running Windows XP via boot camp. Is there anyway to get VMware to work with Windows 7 64-bit without reinstalling VMware. It's starting to get a little annoying booting into 7 with Boot Camp.

    Okay so Windows 7 boots but a number of things don't work. For example the sound and wireless network. Any idea how to fix this?
