I keep getting a message that my license will expire in 8 days and that I need to add a license.  I purchased VM Ware Essentials, but how do I add the license so that it will not shutdown?

Go into Licensing in Config tab to enter your Essentials license. See KB:

Should your licensing expire, it will only stop you from being able to power-on or migrate VM's.  Running VM's will not be shutdown.

Here is a short VM vid on how too. You should be able to view this even if you're not logged in to Vmware.
