Configuring VMware Workstation
This section offers advice and information about factors that can affect the performance of VMware Workstation itself. This section does not address performance of the guest operating system or the host operating system.
Note: In addition to the VMware Workstation configuration options discussed below, you should always install VMware Tools in any guest operating system for which a VMware Tools package exists. Installing VMware Tools provides better video and mouse performance and also greatly improves the usability of the virtual machine. For details, see Installing VMware Tools.
