As your post needs moving to the ESXi area, I have reported it to the moderators.

You should also read this post: https://communities.vmware.com/t5/VMware-vSphere-Discussions/Cant-Download-vSphere-7/m-p/2933847#M43...

Most likely because once a new major version of a product is released, they no longer sell licenses (free or otherwise) for the older versions.

Hi,

For learning purposes the best choice is to invest 200$ per year for a vmug advantage single subscription. That's not free and yes, a year might be a short time. "Free" per definition includes the latest greatest version - that's a common endor rule.

Purchasing a bundle for each member in a company team includes tremendous advantages.

That said, have a look particularly to the very attractive offering content.
