A new maintenance release for VMware Player resolves many issues with the software

Having VMware software in my laptop is crucial to my work as a webdeveloper. Currently I’m using VMware Player and I have encountered issues with the software. However, a new maintenance release has been launched by VMware, which is VMware Player 6.0.1. This update solves many of the problems I have encountered with VMware Player.

One of these issues that I encountered is that, there are instances whenever I shut down my computer, the virtual machine also stops functioning. I normally had to restart the virtual machine process once again at system startup, which can really be annoying whenever it happens. This new update includes Worksation 10.0.1 and I have not experienced the “hanging up” issue since then. Another problem I encountered is that whenever VMWorkstation or Player is interfacing with another program and that program suddenly hangs, Workstation or Player also hangs up. Not a problem anymore with this release. Yet another issue that this new release also resolves is the non-functioning “Download All Components Now” button. This new update erases that concern.

Overall, this resolution release for VMware Player is a welcome respite for developers like me.

VMware Player is an excellent application for running several operating systems on Windows.

This may seem impossible at first sight, how to execute an operating system inside another one, without affecting the state of the partitions and the memory? Because to install an operating system in a computer, we must prepare the hard disk with partitions compatible with that system and generally the operating system runs when the computer is turned on.

With VMware Player we can run 32 and 64 bit operating systems, such as Linux in all its versions, Solaris in all its versions, Windows in all its versions and any other OS we want to try, given that the hardware of our computer is adequate.

Some characteristics that stand out of VMware Player are:

- Possibility of installing an operating system the regular way, creating virtual partitions that do not modify the state of the disk because they are stored in special files.

- Shared computer memory use among the resident OS and the containing OS.

- Support for 64 bit OS.

- Automatic detection of all the hardware of the computer, such as sound card, video card and network card.

With VMware Player we can use tools from another operating system inside Windows, without the need for restarting the computer for accessing another operating system.
