I have created a simple ACE deployemnt with WindowsXP SP3 to a flash drive. (Default ACE Options other than the required admin password).
I had an ACE lisensing issue at home, launched the pc and used a TechNet key to activate the pc, and repackaged the portable deployment to flash.
The machine on the flash ran from home.
Took it to work, instsalled VMPlayer 3, and opened the vm to get the smae error msg as before with ACE licensing.
I am suspecting that it may be the key type? Or did I miss a free ACE key that comes with vmware workstation 7 ?
