    Windows 8 Developer Preview Runs on Workstation 8

    NoelC1 Enthusiast

      Got it all installed and working (Windows 8 is slick!), but VMware Workstation 8 doesn't really "know" about Windows 8 yet.  I used the Windows 7 x64 settings and pointed the CD at the WindowsDeveloperPreview-64bit-English-Developer.iso from Microsoft.  Went in smooth as silk.

       

      I'm going to snapshot the VM and try to install the Windows 7 VMware Tools on Windows 8.  What the heck!    I'll report back.  Otherwise I guess we'll have to wait for a Windows 8 VMware Tools package in order to get conveniences like copying the clipboard to/from the VM.
