    I have a MAC OS X 10.6.2 (Snow Leopard) virtual machine on an ESXi server and I need to be able to emulate the Apple keys (option, command etc) because I'm accessing it from a Windows machine. Is there any way to do this? I'm using the full version of VMware workstation 8 and the guest is a WS8 machine. The problem I've come across with not being able to use this so far is the Command-K shortcut to connect to a network share. I have the arrays of the main server shared across the network and need to be able to connect to them from the OS X VM.

    Command = Windows key
    Option = Alt

    You can change them in system settings to reflect the positions as they would be on an apple keyboard if you're used to apple keyboards..
