Install VMware

You will receive a serial number that you will need to copy into the program the first time you run it. Within the program itself, this code is referred to as a license key.

Mac OS

If you are running a Mac operating system, click on the icon for VMware Fusion and follow the instructions to add to cart checkout, and download the software. Make note of your serial number as you will need to provide it once you are running the program.
