Checking for Product Updates
VMware Workstation checks automatically to see if updates for the product are available. By default, it checks once a week, at the time you launch Workstation. You can change the interval for the automatic checks, and you can check manually at any time by choosing Help > Check for Updates on the Web.
To have VMware Workstation check for updates automatically.
1. Choose Edit > Preferences > Workspace.
2. On the Check for software Updates drop-down menu, set the interval.
The choices are: Never, Daily, Weekly, or Monthly.
Note: This check works only if the host computer is connected to the Internet.
