how can i get vmware player 16 to run on vista?


Recommended Posts

I believe that VMware's drivers (like vmx86.sys) are missing functions at the moment, and some Windows 8 functions will be needed as well. There is also a version block that prevents VMs from launching starting with 11.0.23 and 12.0.1 that will also have to be defeated.

I hope to accomplish this in a few months. It will be very ironic to have VMware 16 working on Vista hosts, considering that its guest additions don't support it!
