In some situations you may find it useful to restrict a user's ability to reconfigure virtual machines and to simplify the user interface for inexperienced users.

Administrative lockout is a global setting for VMware Workstation itself and affects all virtual machines. Restricted user interface affects only the specific virtual machines for which the setting has been made. These two features are available on Windows hosts only.
