Moderator: Thread moved to the Windows guest area, your 2 questions are not related to any VMware product (they are questions for Microsoft).
Fusion is the VMware product which runs on MacOS.
Workstation is the VMware product which runs on Windows or Linux.
Both products have a Pro version and a Player version.
Sounds like you are running Fusion Player on your Mac.
Thank you for the clarification.
Thanks, and can you tell me where to find the Windows guest area?
Also, my question -- which I guess wasn't very clear -- was more about whether upgrading the OS would cause any problems with Fusion running on a Macbook? I know basically nothing about virtual machines and was concerned to not start an update that would be unstable or cause problems in the VM environment.
You replied to this thread, so you found the Windows guest area. It is also accessible on the screen you see if you click the All VMTN Forums tab towards the top of the screen.
Fusion will not be impacted by you upgrading the OS - as a VM is just a bunch of files an appropriate analogy would be that Microsoft Word would not be impacted by you editing a document.
Probably a good idea to backup the VM before you start, just in case the OS upgrade itself has an issue. To do that, read the first paragraph under the Resolution section of this: VMware Knowledge Base
Thank you kindly!
