VMWARE and Virtual Box on same machine Adapter Settings Change

I had been running a few virtual machines on Windows 7 host using VMWARE, under bridged mode. However after installing VirtualBox, I couldn’t access local network machines from VMWARE Guests.

It turned out that the Virtual adapter settings changed. The VMWARE virtual ethernet adapter was not used by VMWARE Bridge protocol anymore. Ticking them to be used by VMWARE Bridged protocol again solved the problem.
