VMware Workstation v7.1.5 and Windows 8

Hi!

Can the latest Windows' v7.1.5 Workstation run Windows 8 or is that only with VMware Workstation v8.0 (will have to wait at a later date to buy a new license)?

Thank you in advance. Smiley Happy

Unfortunately WS7 will not work.  You can download VMware player 4.0 for free and that should work.

So, future v7.x will never have W8 support? Smiley Sad

It is possible.  I don't think VMware has made any announcements.

In fact WS8 does not support Windows 8, but it works on it.  When VMware works on support for Windows 8 they may update WS7 or they may not.

Thanks. I was hoping 7.1.5 would add W8 support.  Smiley Happy

If VMware is still supporting Workstation 7.x, then they should support Windows 8 at one point.
