VMware, the global leader in virtualization and cloud infrastructure, recently released the latest version of VMware Workstation, VMware Fusion (for Mac), and VMware Player (for Windows). All these software boast Windows 10 compatibility and include new features and enhancements.
VMware Player for Windows
VMware Workstation, the world-class virtualization software, has been designed to run on newest version of Windows and also run Windows 10 virtual machines. It now includes support for multi-touch for Windows 10 on a tablet or touch device, USB 3 devices such as portable storage devices and video equipment. Besides, Hyper-V has been added to the guest operating system list and also disk space management to easily recover disk space.
The free virtualization software for Windows, VMware Player, has also been updated with new user interface. The user interface of VMware player has been refined and it now conforms with Windows standards. Updated menus, new logo, toolbars, and new device icons are the highlights of new interface.
VMware Player also comes with virtual hardware improvements included in Workstation 9. Another important change is that VMware Player is now available for commercial use as well. The Player now includes license for commercial use. As you know, VMware Player lacks many powerful features present in Workstation software and provides only basic virtualization features.
Create a new virtual machine, select your Windows ISO, enter a name for the virtual machine, select a location to save the virtual machine, and finally enter the disk space you would like to allocate to start installing Windows 10 on VMware Player. And the best thing is that VMware Player installs Windows 10 without entering the product key during installation.
Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10 users who want to test drive before purchasing Windows 10 may install Windows 10 in VMware virtual machine.
