Dear Pavel        Thanks for your explanation , Firstly I installed spice-webdavd-x86-2.0.msi in my guest (XP 32bit)        Secondly , I modified the xml file as the webside description .        Then I shared one local folder in my host.        But, the 'Preferences' function was still useless, couldn't be used .....

I didn't use virt-manager to create guest , just start  guest  with libvirt then use virt-viewer in my host (Win7) to enter it ...... 
I have read the   'Folder sharing tutorial ' from the http://www.spice-space.org/spice-user-manual.html#_folder_sharingBut I am not  sure whether I should  perform  the below processes step by step (1.Using virt-manager ->Add Hardware 2.modify XML 3. run  qemu command  )  or  they are respectively three different methods for enable folder sharing function .... just need to select one of them to execute, it's will be Ok ..

Please teach  me the detail operation .Thank you very muchBest Regards

Folder sharing works with SPICE. You need to have spice webdav channel

and spice-webdavd in the guest. Please see [0] for more details.

You can download spice-webdavd for your Windows guest
from https://elmarco.fedorapeople.org/spice-webdavd-x86-2.0.msi
