VMware Player 7.1.2

VMware Player

VMware Player is the easiest way to run multiple operating systems at the same time on your computer.

With its user-friendly interface, VMware Player makes it effortless for anyone to try out Windows 7, Chrome OS or the latest Linux releases, or to create virtual "sandboxes" to test pre-release software in. VMware Player can also be used to run a virtual copy of an old PC so that you can recycle the old machines you have under your desk or stored in the closet.

  • Run multiple operating systems simultaneously on a single computer
  • Experience the benefits of preconfigured products without any installation or configuration hassles
  • Share data between host computer and virtual machine
  • Run 32- and 64-bit virtual machines
  • Use 3rd-party pre-configured virtual machines and images
  • Share data between the host computer and virtual machine
  • Broad host and guest operating system support
  • Support for USB 2.0 devices
  • Gain easy access to virtual machines via an intuitive home page interface

VMware Player 7.1.2 changes:

  • This release of VMware Player includes bug fixes.

Known Issues

  • Using a USB headset with a Windows 8 or later guest operating system does not work
  • Because most USB headsets expect a USB 2.0 controller, whereas Windows 8 and later guest operating systems use a USB 3.0 controller by default, you cannot use USB headsets with Windows 8 or later guests.
  • Workaround: Change the USB controller of the guest from USB 3.0 to USB 2.0.

Resolved Issues

  • Using audio conferencing software on a Windows 8 guest operating system caused a severe echo during both video and audio calls
  • When you used audio conferencing software on a Windows 8 guest, participants using the built in speaker, as opposed to headphones, received a severe echo during both video and audio calls.
  • This issue is resolved.
  • Could not access Help from Virtual Machine Settings dialog box
  • You could not access the Help system by clicking Help on the Virtual Machine Settings dialog box.
  • This issue is resolved.
