VMWare Fusion 8

Jump to solution

I'm trying to download an older version of VMWare Fusion (8.x), for an older MAC. I am registered and I had to google a link but it says "Content not available". Is there a link to download that version?

Thanks for the reply. That download did work, however what I was attempting to do originally was use the personal license that was given with VMWare Fusion 12. The generated key doesn't work with the Fusion 8 download. Is there a way to get a personal license for Fusion 8, or is that just for VMWare fusion 12? Thanks for your help.

Fusion 8 was a paid-only product, so the free personal use license wouldn't allow downgrading.

The concept of Fusion Player and it being free for personal use was new to Fusion 12.

All installations of Fusion 8 must be licensed with a purchased key, you could buy a Fusion 12 Pro license and downgrade it to give you a Fusion 8 key if you really wanted to.

Ah ok, no problem. I'm just using it for school, but I do have a windows machine capable of the free license, so I will default to that. Thanks for your help.
