VMware Fusion Player - Personal Use License

Jump to solution

Hi,

I've been trying to sign up for the free personal use license, but the Register Here link or Register button on the page, just gives me a Content Not Available page.

Is there something I'm missing to complete this registration?

Thanks Mikero​,

I was already using FireFox, but ended up having to use a guest Chrome window with no ad blockers or anything.

All working now!

Try using Firefox or Chrome.

Following that, incognito or private browsing... The service is functioning, but we suspect there's some cookie/cache collision happening.

I am also unable to register for the free license. 

Will some one please post a link to the page where I can do so, and then a VERY explicit description of what link to press. So far, trying to follow the instructions using ANY browser leads me on a fruitless chase.

I was able to register and download the VMware Fusion 12.1.0.DMG and license key ...

However, system requirements shows I need v11.x DMG for use on MOAC OS Mojave.

Is there a place to download VMwre Fusion v11.x (I found standard download, assume the same image, just different license key?)

If I use this, then will the provided license key for Personal Use (v12.x) work with v11.x image?

Thanks in advance... Grant

Hi, Grant.  I found the 11.5.7 version for my Macbook running Mojave here:
https://my.vmware.com/group/vmware/downloads/details?downloadGroup=FUS-1157&productId=798&rPId=55757 

I noted in the install that it would not accept my license for VMWare 12.  The instructions I found here states use the Try Free for 30 days option.  I'll try to get a personal use license for this version later.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

The Free personal license option is new for VMware Fusion 12.
You cannot use the free license for VMware Fusion 11, you also cannot downgrade the free license.

If you cannot upgrade Mojave to -at least- Catalina then your only option is to buy a VMware Fusion 12 license and downgrade the license to use it for Fusion 11.

Sorry for the bad news.

That is indeed bad news.  Can't upgrade to Catalina.  Old 2012 Mac processor just won't handle it.  Even with a new SSD hard drive and more RAM.
Fusion 12 won't install on Mojave.
Dang it.
Thanks.

Thank you! These instructions worked for me; in particular, using Incognito finally got me past the roadblock where I would sign in, and it would tell me that my account wasn't activated, so I would activate my account, and it would navigate me away from the personal-use-registration page.

Anyway, much appreciated.
