Hello.
As most of the software has paid or free versions, another method is to have paid licenses and free licenses.

When you install VMware vSphere, you get a 60-day Full Demo license. After this time or before you must enter either a Free license or a paid license.

You can obtain ISO image of VMware vSphere Hypervisor and Free license by clicking on the following links, if you do not have a user you can also obtain a free user. The free license has several limitations

I'm having the same issue. Can't download ESXI and if I try to go to Contact Us it just kicks me out. I downloaded an older version of 7 last year but I can't view the license for that. I tried calling and no ones home.

Hello.

Downloads are available to those who purchase a license and register it  in My VMware (Product Downloads)

If you have your user and password registered in My VMware. You can also choose:

 Trial or Free Product

For VMware vSphere we have Download Trial, which takes you to Product Evaluation Center for VMware vSphere 7.0 Update 1c where you must register to get access to the download.

Another option is the Free VMware vSphere Hypervisor product, go to Download Free Products and choose VMware vSphere Hypervisor (64 bit). You will also need to register to get access to the download and the Free license. Please note that the Free license has limitations.

Once registered and if you have problems with the download or registration it may be due to your browser, it is suggested to use

a private window in your browser, or disable all blockers installed in your browser, you can also try another browser like Firefox ESR or Waterfox (I use these browsers).
