VMware Player 7.1.0


VMware Player has a nice start-up screen. You can see all the possible options which you can choose and work with in this version of the program listed to the right. By creating a new virtual machine you basically create a computer inside your computer. Of course the virtual machine needs an operating system which you can install with or after you create the virtual PC. Usually it is called "Guest operating system" and users have the freedom to choose among all popular operating systems like Microsoft Windows, Linux, Novell NetWare, Solaris, etc. Each machine can be given a name, a maximum disk size and how much of the memory and CPU power to use.

Basic Operations

Keep in mind that if you want to run VMware Player 7.1.0 inside another virtual machine this will result in degraded performance for both. Once you have installed your desired operating system version you can treat it like a real one; you can Power On and Off, Suspend and Reset the virtual environment, stretch it to full screen, and select which of the removable devices to be used by the virtual computer. Once created, any virtual machine and its settings can be changed upon the user's wish.


During our tests of VMware Player we did not experience any kind of problems. To be honest with you we can tell you that all programs reviewed by us are tested on a virtual machine too. If you think that this version cannot answer your requirements, there are other versions available for purchase for advanced users and professionals.
