Hello,
I was wondering if I will be able just open in Vmware workstation 11 the VM that I created using VMware converter P2V for Vmware version 10? In VMWARE converter 5.5.3, I dont see the option to select P2v to VMWARE workstation version 11. Please advise if I need to do additional steps for opening v10 in v11 or I will be able to open without any issues. THank you

it's backward compatible so if you have a virtual machine using an older hardware version it will open fine in the newer product version

vmware workstation 11 was just released about a month ago so that's probably why you don't see that as an option in the converter

You do see a virtual machine version though so make this the lowest version.
