VMware Installation and Configuration

VMware is a virtualization program. With this program, you can introduce various operating systems basically on our PCs. You can test or test diverse operating systems without transforming anything into our system.

Usually, we need to upgrade the system to Linux for instance, however, we set out not and we don’t know whether we will be equipped for running that OS. VMware-workstation can assist you with this issue since we can attempt the same number of OS’s we need on our machine.

VMware-workstation is compatible with all versions of Windows and can be installed on 64-bit systems; there is also a version for Linux.
