    Yes, that's the virtual part of the story.

    But this thread is about the vmnet editor that can set up host network adapters used by the virtual network adapters:

    This is also the case if you want to alter (add/remove) the default network adapters added by VMware to your Control Panel -> Network Center during install.

    I think VMware took out or changed something from the Workstation 11 download. I am unable to find a *.msi file. I downloaded the trial version, which is 11.1.2. Any ideas where it is located now?

    The .msi file wasn't in the temp folder but I did find a work around. If you open up cmd and move to the folder where the install is located you can run "<workstation file name here>.exe /extract .\vmware"<-- destination folder.

    The .msi file is located in the newly extracted folder.

    Thank you for mentioning.

    That was also described in the first post, for previous Player versions (v3-4).
    However they seem to change something with almost each installer.
