USER REVIEWS

Relevant Issues Resolved with the Release of the Free 10.0.1 Update

By Christine Diaz

On Wednesday, June 18, 2014

My workstation is commonly known as the area or personal space where I, or any employee, work. It has a computer, table, and chair, with all the work paraphernalia that an employee needs. The area or space is usually limited within a cubicle or office partition. In the information technology world, a workstation is very different. It is a special computer with the main purpose of managing and operating scientific or technical applications. VMWare’s Workstation is a popular brand with such functions.

In the 10.0.1 update, VMWare was able to resolve some known issues with their Workstation. Its Easy Install function was added with support for release to manufacturing (RTM) versions of MS Windows including 8.1 and Server 2012 R2. The problem with the VMWare Player, that comes along with the Workstation, where it freezes whenever other apps freeze was resolved as well.

What makes VMWare’s workstation so popular is perhaps its support of many operating systems. What’s more, in the release of the 10.0.1 update, VMWare improved the compatibility of their Workstation with CPUs based on AMD.

Pros

  • Supports many operating systems from various developers
  • Resolved many known previous issues

Cons

  • It requires high computer specifications

Install more Operating Systems on your PC without any risk

There are sometimes that you need to install a virtual machine, and you have no clue about how could you do that. Fortunately, VMware Workstation offers an easy solution for that problem bringing an application for installing these VMs on your own computer. Rest easy, it looks more complicated than it really is. Follow the simple steps that will show you the wizard included in the application and in not son long time you will have finished the process.

Some of the things that users claim about virtual machines is that they take too many resources in order to run them properly, and that is something that is kept that way no matter how much time passes. With more or less recent computers, VMware Workstation works fine since it optimizes the available resources and allows choosing the resource settings you want use for it.

This VM software supports Windows versions up to the new Windows 8 and other kind of OS. I’ve tried many similar programs, and I think that this VMware application is good enough for general users. The same company counts with a good variety about this kind of utility, so if you check that this one does not fit your needs try a more advanced version instead.

Pros

  • Easy installation of Virtual Machines
  • Support for advanced 3D graphics

Cons

  • Some functions are not available in this version

VMWare Finally Released a Free Update to Resolve Important Issues in their Workstation App

By Rose Sincro

On Friday, June 20, 2014

Though not entirely in charge of the server room in our office at work, I do know a thing or two about workstations. VMWare has done a good job when they released their first Workstation. Reviews were great until some computer enthusiasts noticed certain problems with the software. My friends from the IT department at work have similar stories about it. Thankfully, VMWare was finally able to resolve these problems.

To resolve the problems that users encountered with VMWare’s Workstation, they released the 10.0.1 update. It included fixes and enhancements that made their workstation a better choice. First, release to manufacturing versions of Microsoft Windows Server 2012 and 8.1 is now supported by the workstation. Second, the built-in player no longer freezes whenever other running software freezes. It also fixed the problem where Workstation hangs during shutdown.

Lastly, improvements were implemented to make VMWare’s Workstation a better one. It is now compatible with AMD CPUs. It can now display correctly across multi-monitor hosts running in Windows, and it even when its Legacy Floppy does not work properly, it will boot from DVD or CD.

Pros

  • Can support various operating systems
  • Problems were resolved and improvements implemented

Cons

  • Host computer must have high specifications

VMware Workstation is an operating system utility designed mostly for professional users who can develop to develop different activities according to their needs. With this program, you can create a cloud in your computer to access whenever you want, and use the highest demand applications.

With this software you can use 3D graphics, run with the support of Open GL 2.1 and DirectX 9.0c Shader Model 3, and in virtual machines such as Linux or Windows.

Create virtual machines

VMware Workstation runs security scans and analyses your operating system. It will keep everything under control and offer a huge amount of possibilities. Everything that could damage the integrity of your computer and its perfect functioning can be controlled at any time.

The main intention of VMware Workstation is to create virtual machines. What’s best is that there is no limit to the amount of virtual machines created, only what the hardware supports. It could seem quite complicated and, in fact it can be, depending on your user level. Nevertheless, if you’re a beginner you can still use it without taking advantage of all it’s tools.

VMware Workstation 11.1.2 Build 2780323 Features

The features of this software are listed below:

Special requirements

For running the program you need to have a processor of 1 Ghz and also a RAM memory of 512MB. But, if you want to virtualise this system you also need to have a processor up to 3.0 Ghz and at least a RAM memory of 1GB.

Other possibilities

Other alternatives to work in a virtual computer include VirtualBox. You can connect it with your personal computer and use it without disturbing the second, thus creating another version totally independent from Linux or Windows.

If you like VMware products, don’t hesitate in trying VMware Player, which also allows you to use several operating systems at the same time. It also detects all the hardware that your computer could have installed, such as video, networks or sound cards.
