I have a windows 7 laptop, and am running a windows 7 virtual machine with vmware player.  from the vm, i ping my laptop that it is hosted on.  I get a response with all pings.  when I do a ping to the vm from the host, i get no response.  they are on the same network.  why can't i ping the vm from my host?

Are you pinging by hostname or ip address? Also make sure that the firewall is turned off.

The vm machine. If that doesn't work try disabling the firewall on your home pc as well.
