VMware Workstation 4.5
VMware Workstation now 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 also change the interval for the automatic checks. You can have VMware Workstation check once a month, once a week, once each day or never.
Choose Edit > Preferences > Workspace. Use the Check for updates automatically drop-down list to set the interval.
You can check manually at any time by choosing Help > Check for Updates on the Web.
This check works only if the host computer is connected to the Internet.
