    VMWARE and Ms to have HYPER-V and Workstation / Player to co-exist


    Hi folks

    I don't normally get involved in what is often perceived as Vaporware but this idea of HYPER-V and VMWARE co-existing is something that people have wanted for a long time -- and it looks that the next release of Workstation (16 --not out yet --current release is 15.5) will include this.

    If it's true --great stuff -- I'm not a technical enough geek to know about the implications or difficulty of doing this -- but I think in Linux using the KVM Hypervisor you can already run VMWare too. --Need to check as I haven't used KVM for a while now.

    Anyway here's the Ms / VMWare link -- and at last it points a decent direction of travel.

    VMware Workstation Zealot - Official blog of VMware Workstation - VMware Blogs

    scroll down about half way --past the 15.5 announcements and there's also a link too giving further info

    Cheers

  2. VMware is not working in Windows 10 Home edition due to "Hyper-V role".

    I use VMware Workstation Player 14 as a Virtual Machine runner. However, when I try to run a virtual machine, VMware tells me:

    VMware Player and Hyper-V are not compatible. Remove the Hyper-V role

    from the system before running VMware player.

    I know that Windows 10 Home does not have Hyper-V but VMware says it does, and I have not been able to run a virtual machine since.

    Can anyone help me?

    Enabling Hyper-V on Windows 10 desktop and laptop

    Hyper-V is not available on Home editions. You can use VirtualBox or VMWare Workstation Player.

    VMWARE and Ms to have HYPER-V and Workstation / Player to co-exist

    Hyper V or VMWare?


    I previously used VMWare Workstation 10 on Windows 8.1 x64.
    When I uninstalled VMWare Workstation 10 I found the following:
    1. Irreversible changes to Windows 8.1 system setup
    2. A huge number
    of files and folders left on my system that could not be deleted
    I had to format my C:\ drive and re-install Windows 8.1 afresh.

    My question now is:
    If I install Hyper-V in Windows 10 Pro x64, will take control of my system and make irreversible changes like VMWare Workstation did?

    VMware workstation 12 player: I have used Hyper V mainly, but have given the latest VMware a go. So far I'm liking it. Something it does that Hyper V didn't is allow me to connect USB device. I have not figured out the setting so I can see my host drives though. How do I enable that? [img] 23361

VMWARE has the advantage of not relying on RDP for all communications - RDP could be real slow on a laggy network. You can get better response by...
