          Windows hosts

          To locate the Workstation serial number in the Windows registry:

           

          Click Start > Run, type regedit, and press Enter.

          Navigate to Computer > HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > VMware, Inc. > VMware Workstation > License.ws.x.x > Serial.

           

          Note: For 64-bit versions of Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7 and Windows Vista, the serial number is located at Computer > HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Wow6432Node > VMware, Inc. >VMware Workstation > License.ws.x.x > Serial.

           

           

          Linux hosts

           

          On Linux hosts, you can find the Workstation serial number in the /etc/vmware/license-ws-XX-XX-XXXXXX file in the your home directory.

            Just install Workstation on the new PC and enter the same serial number.  Then remove Workstation from the old PC.
