Installing VMware Workstation

Installing VMware Workstation

The following sections describe how to install VMware Workstation on your Linux or Windows host system:

Selecting Your Host System

Selecting Your Host System

VMware Workstation is available for both Windows and Linux host computers. The installation files for both host platforms are included on the same CD-ROM.

Your serial number allows you to use VMware Workstation only on the host operating system for which you licensed the software. If you have a serial number for a Windows host, you cannot run the software on a Linux host, and vice versa.

To use VMware Workstation on a different host operating system - for example, to use it on a Linux host if you have licensed the software for a Windows host - purchase a license on the VMware Web site. You may also get an evaluation license at no charge for a 30-day evaluation of the software. For more information, see www.vmware.com/download/.

To install on a supported Windows host computer, see Installing VMware Workstation 4 on a Windows Host. To install on a Linux host computer, see Installing VMware Workstation 4 on a Linux Host.
