VMware Workstation 7 and Server 2008 R2 Guests

I think I found my first bug.

 

Doing a Easy Install on Server 2008 R2 – first it complains that the key is wrong (though that could just be a copy/paste issue lol) then;

But the Easy Install has finished!! Powered the VM off and back on again, still the same.

 

Oh well, no VMware tools!

VMware Workstation 7…..

November 4, 2009 Leave a comment

So I downloaded it and tried it out.

 

I like it – a lot. And it’s the subtle differences that I like.

 

For instance – the added support for Windows 7 Taskbar

I have my taskbar vertical (as you can see) – and I like the way I get “Hover Previews” (what is their official name anyway?) of all my favourite Virtual Machines – even the suspended ones!

VMware tools under Linux seems (it may not be, but it “seems”) easier to install – less of the headaches and more “pre-compiled” modules for my Linux operating systems 🙂

 

Not found any real bugs yet (the first I thought I had turned out to be a corrupt ISO download – *sigh*), but will post anything up I can find as I get to using it 🙂

Now if only I had a Mac to try out VMware Fusion 3 – but I flattened my “Hack Mac” for Windows 7 😦
