Hello,
If I have a VMWare workstation 10.0.3 volume license and just buy the upgrade license for workstation 11 for $149, will it work? Also, will I need both keys for 10 and upgrade 11 ?

Let me know.

Thank you

You can go to the VMware myVMware, and select the keys for 10, and select upgrade to 11.

Not that I've seen from the MyVMware Store, the 10 Key becomes a 11 Key. (The 10 Key is Upgraded to an 11 key).

So you then install VMware Workstation 11 and use the new keys.

You do not have the old keys for 10 anymore, because they've been upgraded, and you should not use 10 anymore!

i just went through this yesterday
selected upgrade (instead of full) and it asked for the key for vmware 9 or 10
since i owned 10, it had my key there; i selected it, purchase completed and gave me my 11 key
when you install 11 with 10 already installed, it will uninstall 10 first then install 11; you can put the key in during setup
