Hi, it's been a while since I needed use VMWare so downloaded the latest v14 and installed on Ubuntu 16.04.
Every time I start it, it asks for the license key then shows a "Thanks for using" screen. Is it really going to do that every time I try to use it or am I missing an option somewhere?
I am retired on an income a little above the National Poverty Level, thanks to Enron, so NEVER likely to be able to afford to buy it. A warning about a constant nag-screen would have saved me some wasted time installing and I would have gone to VirtualBox and try and convert over my old .VMX file.
Workstation Pro requires a license key after a 30-day trial. Workstation Player is free for non-commercial use, and does not require a license key. Make sure to download and install the Player version.
