Hi I wanted to create a VMWARE on my laptop so I could use it during powerpoint presentations.  I wanted one instance to run on the laptop and have it connected to the slide projector, this would let webex run.  at the same time the direct monitor would be free for me to cruise the internet...possible?

    I think so since the point of focus of the webex would be the virtual machine I don't see why this wouldn't work.

    Please update your Hardware configuration and whether you intend to run Linux Virtual Machines as well

    IMHO, there are 2 options for you.

    Install VMware Workstation which is a product which you need to buy and run multiple VMs

    Install Microsoft Virtual PC which is a free product that lets you run multiple VMs as well.
