VMWare Desktop version 9: Not able to create a TEAM?

I tried the “free download” of VMware Workstation 9.

After installing, it gives the selection as the followings:
1)      Create a New Virtual Machine
2)      Open a Virtual Machine
3)      Connect to a Remote Server
4)      Virtualize a Physical Machine
5)      Virtual Network Editor
6)      Workstation Preferences
7)      Software Updates
8)      Help

From the above selection, I did not see “How to make a Team”

My Goal:
To Create a team which consists of the following machines:
1)      DC1 (Windows 2008 server) is at LAN 1 [LAN 1:; The IP of DC1 is “; DC1 functions as Domain Controller, DNS and DHCP]
2)      BobaFilesrv (Windows 2008 server) is at LAN 1
3)      Win71 is at LAN 1
4)      RRAS (Windows 2008 server)
5)      Win72 is at LAN 1
6)      Win8 is at LAN 2[LAN 2 is]

I want to create a TEAM called “Windows 2008 & 8”

I try one by one the above 8 selections, but I could not find any “selection” to create a Team

Then, I click “File”, “Edit”, “View”, “VM” and “Tabs”
-      None of them will give me the selection to create a “Team”

Note: I am used to with version 6.5; it seems version 9 is "bad"

My question: Would somebody show me how to create “a Team” please? (Unless, This FREE VERSION of Desktop version 9 do not allow it?

Thank you
