The quickest method to do this is to create one virtual machine - configure it to how you want it to look like (e.g. install applications), convert it to a template, and then use the template to create your 100 virtual machines thereafter.

Here is a link to a guide on how to do this.

Template is the quickest and easiest.

But it's still going to take you some time, to finally check and manually configure each VM.

Also make sure your vSphere infrastrucutre can host 100 VMs.

using a template is a lot quicker and can have a lot of pre configured options like service packs and kb's and as the setup is done which takes time then thats why it's a lot quicker

what version of esx / vsphere are you using?
