hi, thank you for the link.  i am new to this, is it correct to say that a virtual machine for workstation 17 will also work in fusion on a mac?  if so, which fusion version is required.  i have latest 11.5, but not 12.  will it run a windows 10 virtual machine created for workstation 17?  thank you.

If the VM is configured to use the latest compatibility, then only Fusion 13.x+ can run it.  However, Workstation (and I assume Fusion as well) can create/modify a VM for specific version compatibility - So the answer depends on what version the VM was built to be compatible with.

Also, I forgot to mention - this ONLY applies to x86/x86-64 architecture VMs.  If someone is running an Apple Silicon based Mac, then they will never be able to run any VM created by Workstation, or even an Intel-based Mac.
