    VMWare Player 7.0 Released.

    So far the difference I see with the W Ten latest build VM as compared to Player 6.x is it gets to the Welcome Screen faster. Also it seems that W Ten is a bit more stable. Although Explorer Windows still open slowly. Firefox Portable 32 bit seems to run fairly well once loaded(I'm running the 32 bit W10 ISO.)

    Edit: Also I did not notice any Explorer restarts or Desktop reloading as it did under Player 6.x.

    :)

  2. Free VMPlayer compatibility with Windows 10 as the host OS

    At this point in time, none of the VMWare players are compatible with Windows 10 host. I have tried all of them up to and including version 12. There are no errors but all guest OS will be painfully slow. Hopefully, VMWare will release a Windows 10
    compatible player. I went back to Windows 8.1 host and all my machines are running fast again.

  3. Free VMPlayer compatibility with Windows 10 as the host OS

    I did the Windows 10 update not knowing about any potential issues regarding VMware Player version 6. At first it seemed to work ok but I could no longer connect from my XP virtual machine to my SQL Server running on the Windows 10 host. After reading
    this and other similar messages I found VMware Player version 7 that is still free for non-commercial use and have so far had no trouble with any network connections or SQL Server connections between Windows 10 host and XP virtual machine. (Link to VMware
    Player 7:

  4. VMWare Player 7.0 Released

    Thanks Jeff. I have tried to run VMPlayer 6 under build 9879 and not having complete success.
    I have found that you cannot defrag the virtual drive.
    Also had problems getting it to shut down.
    Also found just lately that Virtual Box will not work at all.
    I have a Dell OptiPlex 760 and yesterday did a upgrade to the processor to get virtualization feature. works fine normally but feel there is some problem with windows 10 tr.

  7. Player 7 does not seem to work well on defrag of a virtual disk.
    I can create Linux machines and Vista but cannot defrag them. otherwise they seem to function OK

  8. VMWare Player 7.0 Released

    This is on the first time out? I noticed Player 6.x only seemed to defrag the first time using VMWare tools. I haven't set up a new VM in 7 yet. Just running the inherited VMs for now.

  10. I just completed installing VMPlayer 7 and then set up Ubuntu and windows 10 TR 9879 and both allowed defrag successfully. also did some updates on w 10 tr.

  12. Just for grins I tried the original W10 US English 64 bit ISO that would not install for me using the 6.x Player. It went right on. VMWare Player recognized it as a W10 x64. After install, VMWare Tools install, and defrag, it seems stable. No jumping windows or long delays loading Explorer folders.
