VMware Workstation Player
Streamlined PC virtualization for business
VMware Workstation 12 Player (formerly known as Player Pro) is a streamlined desktop virtualization application that runs one or more operating systems on the same computer without rebooting. With its simple user interface, unmatched operating system support and portability, it's now easier than ever for IT professionals to get their users up and running with a corporate desktop.
Easy PC Virtualization for Windows and Linux
VMware Workstation Player provides a streamlined user interface for creating, running and evaluating operating systems and applications in a virtual machine on Windows or Linux PCs. Easily interact and exchange data between applications running in the virtual machine and the desktop.
Unmatched OS Support for Ultimate Compatibility
Workstation Player supports hundreds of guest operating systems – old and new – so you can continue to run the applications you need in a virtual machine for as long as you want. With support for the latest releases of Windows and Linux as well as support for prevalent operating systems like Windows XP and Windows 7, or even the new Windows 10, Workstation Player turns a regular PC into the ultimate computer for compatibility.
Virtual Machine Portability
With VMware Workstation Player, complete desktop environments including the operating system, applications and user configurations can be containerized in a virtual machine and easily shared. Instead of buying and shipping additional hardware, reduce cost by simply providing VMware Workstation Player along with a virtual machine containing your secure desktop image.
Run Restricted Virtual Machines
Workstation Player has the ability to run restricted virtual machines created by VMware Workstation or VMware Fusion Pro. Restricted virtual machines are the easiest way to secure corporate desktops with encryption, runtime password protection, USB access restriction, isolation between the host and guest OS, and time limitation.
