This is mostly a matter of opinion on the user.

I use VMWare products at work and it has a nice polished look and operation to it, and very few issues.

I did try the Microsoft virtual PC 2004 version and the configuration was a little quirky at first, but in the end you get the same result. I have not seen or tried the newest 2007 version though.

You could try both, I know VMWare supports importing Microsoft Virtual PC drives into VMware products. So you could try one then the other with the same image.

Error vmware does not open Virtual Machines.localized/Microsoft Windows XP 1 1.vmwarevm/Microsoft Windows XP 1 1.vmx" is not a valid virtual machine configuration file


Thanks for contacting Fixya Support, I am glad to assist.

What appears to be the issue, is that your .vmx (Virtual Machine File extension) which is what how your Windows XP virtual machine terminal launches and works, may possibly be corrupted. I have been using VMWare Fusion for my Macs for nearly 3 years and it is not uncommon for this type of file to become corrupted and fail to launch for no apparent reason.

The usual way to correct this inability to launch issue, is if you can use the VMWare Fusion console to revert back to a previous Snapshot (saved backups or "snapshots" of your previous Windows XP virtual terminal sessions) of that Windows Virtual Machine terminal in order to recover the functionality of the vm.

If you are not familiar with what a Snapshot in VMWare is, then that would mean chances are you have not used that function and therefore you would have no snapshots of any previous Windows XP sessions to revert back to.

If this is the case, the what I can recommend you try, is to reinstall the VMWare Fusion 3 software to overwrite the current copy you have to see if this can help repair your affected Windows XP .vmx file.

If this process does not help, then you may unfortunately have to create a new Windows XP virtual terminal if you have no back ups or Snapshots of previous sessions.

Please feel free to reply back to this post if you have further questions.

Basically, partition up hard drive, install a "Boot Manager" install Each Operating system, at boot time, PC boots to a "Menu" where you choose which one to start.
OR Use Vmware or Virtual PC, Install on Windows, and you can add as many "Virtual OS's" that you need..

If you had to virtualize a Windows NT server on a server running Server 2003, would you go with VMWare or Microsoft's Virtual Server 2005? Just curious what folks' preference is. TIA -


I prefer another box running NT Server, to be honest. But personally I would go with Microsoft Virtual Server. Ive found that one to be more stable in a server environment. My one experience with VMWare on a server was very blue and crashy.

Trying to install BE 12.5 on a Windows 2003 Virtual server (VMWare ESXi),autoplay will not launch and cannot install by running setup.exe either.


With VMWare ESX (and other products they offer) during install of the VMWare Tools, Autorun is disabled to prevent multiple guests from accessing a cd-rom all at the same time.

If you go to this article by microsoft, it describes how to check the registry settings for autorun and the values to reset them.

I have installed virtual pc in windows vista. in virtual pc i ave installed windows xp. in virtual pc my usb ports are not working


Virtual PC for Windows does not support USB devices (other than a mouse and keyboard ... which are not actually emulated via USB, but are simply "used" through the host) ... but just to confirm the "official" statement of this:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/824511/en-us

Unfortunately, Microsoft did NOT add USB support in Virtual PC 2007 (a widely anticipated addition that simply didn't happen).

VMWare Server DOES support USB devices (through the host) with some exceptions. From the documentation: "... Modems and certain streaming data devices, such as speakers and Web cams, do not work properly." You may want to read the details of using USB devices with a VMWare virtual machine starting on page 232 here: http://www.vmware.com/pdf/server_vm_manual.pdf

You can download Virtual Server for free here (You'll need to register and request a free key ... a painless process): http://www.vmware.com/download/server/

VMware


Since you do not have a DVD, Vista is out, That leaves you with Windows XP (if you have it) or Linux/BSD. Your question does not give a lot of details, are you trying to install VMware Server or ESXi?
Both are free but there is a big difference, ESXi is a bare metal hypervisor and VMware Server is not. This means the ESXi does not need an operating system already installed but VMware Server does.
VMware has posted hardware that is compatible with ESXi but you should note that you really need at least 2 computer to run ESXi - one as the actual server and another to manage it. With VMware server you only need one machine and it is less sensitive to hardware but you have to have an operating system already installed on the machine, then load the VMware server and then create the virtual machine. What type of machine are you trying to create VMware supports practicaly all versiona of windows and linux. Can you detail what you have and what you have done so far to get the error message?

On vista i have vmware 6


Your Guest OS uses a Virtual VGA adaptor. As with a normal computer it needs drivers. This usually is installed through VMware Tools. (VMware tells your guest OS there are all kinds of virtual devices. They don't exist physically but need their drivers since VMware uses the virtual devices to handle the Host PCs physical devices.

In order to install VMware Tools, go to:
VM > Install VMWare Tools.

Remember that you need Administrator rights.

This should do the trick, let me know if this solved your problem.
