    VmWare Workstation 12.5.9: how to share folders between VMs?


    Hi all,

    I need to run a CMD command in a VM that would need the access of Windows folder from another VM.

    While it is easy to set host folders to be shared with the VM, how to share folders between VMs? *Confused

    Thank you.

    :)

  2. vmware workstation 12 out now - built for W10


    They no longer show VM Player at the VM ware site only the VM Workstation 12 Player when downloaded as VM Player 12.exe! The two links there are for the free to use at home 32bit and 64bit flavors of the player itself under the new name. Workstation Player is not the same as the paid for Workstation Pro. derekimo had the correct download page there.

    Vmware workstation 7 stoped working after upgrade from Win7SP1 to Win10

    Upgrade was perfect for all applications. But VMware workstation 7.1.6 went through the upgrade process but the VMs on the machine did not restart giving memory error. Reinstalled the software, VMs still do not start saying the "Authorization Service not
    started. Tried to install latest VMware Player 12, (VMware claims it runs on Win10), even that did not start. Both VMware 7.1.6 and VMware player 12 during installation gave an apparently non-fatal error message pertaining to "IRQL_NOT_LESS_NOT_EQUAL". Running
    Win10 Pro 64-bit with latest updates. Any suggestion to make VMware 7.1.6 work is welcome - PKM

    Apparently you still don't understand the difference between "try me out free" and totally free. The Workstation Player 12 or called Workstation 12 Player on the product page reveals something right there. Virtual Machines Multiple Operating Systems: VMware Workstation Player | United States

    "VMware Workstation 12 Player Free for Personal Use" is actually for trying it out at home free without any commercial application until you look down at the bottom of the page there where you also see:

    Let's read that again. "Download Free Trial" not "Download Free Version"! And what do you run into on the download page itself?

    For the 32bit and 64bit free versions you have to go to the other download page and choose which one you are looking for from a Major and Minor pair of dropdown lists. Once on the main "All Downloads" page seen at downloads you have to scroll all the way down next to the bottom but not at the bottom for the VMware Workstation Player item found under the "Desktop and End-User Computing" category and click on the "Download Product" link to arrive at the other download page where the options for choosing between free and trial are seen. free

    Whats that? "(PAID)" features? Thought this was supposed to be a freebie? As with any other Trial ware or Shareware you either have a time limit or limited options until you buy a key which then sees all the features unlocked or you simply won't run out of time. This is the information on the 7.1.2 release.

    And for the 32bit which obviously will still run on the 64bit and why it listed for both.
