Hi all

This seems to be a good LEGAL way of getting the stand alone vmplayer 4 (for creating W8 VM's under vmware).

Download the vmware TRIAL WORKSTATION software

This incorporates the vmware player version 4 (which should be availialable as a stand alone free product later).

If you start it up you will see that unlike WORKSTATION it doesn't have an expiry date.

So for those who don't want to pay 140 or so USD you can get vmware player simply by signing up for workstation TRIAL and just use the vmware player.

It should be available later as a stand alone download but for those who can't wait !!!!

Cheers

Vmware Player already has the update to 4 available through the older Vmware player program since 5 days ago.

No need to get Workstation to get to the new Vmware player 4. Just update within your existing Vmware player install, or download Vmware player 3.14, and check for updates with it.
