You can also just double click on the .vmx files of whatever VMs you want to start up. What I've done is set up Shortcuts in my Quick Launch Toolbar for my frequently used VMs. Each Shortcut targets the respective .vmx file of the VM it is to start.

Hope this helps

Hi Eric,

Welcome to the forum.

On my XP machine, I just need to start another VMware Player instance and select the VM I want to run. Isn't it possible under 7?

Regards

Franck

right now I run 30 VMplayer VMs at the same time - so yes- it works - just do it

Hi Franck, continuum, and gbullman,

I didn't know I can run multiple instances of vm-player until read your postings. Thanks very much for your help.

Appreciate all your helps.
