VMware Workstation V9 Changes
Posted on 2012-08-28
I have VMware Workstation Version 9 running just fine. VMware Tools have changed and I have worked out (with help from E-E) how to get around the changes.
The VMware Workstation hardware stuff appears to have changed. My Windows 98 machine (originally made with VMware Workstation V1 and working at hardware level 5.x) failed to run. I had to make a new VM and then use the option to "Use an existing machine". That allowed Windows 98 to run. So all my machines (DOS 6.3, Windows 3.1, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT4 Workstation, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Window Vista Business and Windows 8 Release Candidate) all run. I have not yet tried any of my Linux machines, but no doubt they will run, or I can make them do so.
So then my question is:
What is really new in VMware Workstation V9? Is there something I can do now that I could not before?
I do not have a problem needing an answer, so I will let this go for a few days and award points for good information.
Thanks. .... Thinkpads_User
