I can't recall if there's a way to downgrade the license key itself in MyVMware, but Fusion 11.5.6 and later supports using a Fusion 12 key. (So Player 'paid' would unlock Fusion 11.5.6 'standard')
I just purchased Fusion 12 Player and entered the license key into Fusion 11.5.6.
It does not work, saying that the license key is not valid.
I copy-and-pasted the license key, so I know that it was entered correctly.
Further, I can confirm that I am unable to downgrade the license via my.vmware.com. When I select "DOWNGRADE LICENSE KEYS", no products are listed.
Is there a way to remedy this situation or should I request a refund?
It's supposed to work, could be a bug... can you email me and we can discuss directly? mroy at vmware dot com
I have no problem with a refund, but the latest version of Fusion 11 was updated to accept v12 license keys, so it _should_ work unless something went wrong.
Hi is there any solution to use fusion player 12 licence with version 11.5.3? I have same problem- licence downgrade not working and 11.5.3 not accept 12 licence key.
Looking forward for your replies.
The next version of Fusion 11, which should be shipping in Oct November, will support a v12 license key.
Edit: The date was moved to align with security updates

I use Fusion for work. I cannot upgrade to macOS Catalina, which is the minimum OS version Fusion 12 supports, and hence I need to use Fusion 11.
My Fusion 11 trial expires in 4 days.
Will the next version of 11 be released by then?
No, we're about a month out.
Drop me an email and we should be able to help.
