In Topic: Mac OS X guest unlocker for VMware

17 November 2011 - 12:34 PM

If you are still running W7 or P3 then using Albert's "Unlocker" with Donk's updated script is still the preferred method, but Donk's script is a .cmd rather than the original .bat, have a look at the following "How To" for all the relevant information and links.

Donk's .cmd script is aware of 64-bit windows and looks for W7 or P3 in the relevant place. Other locations would require the cript editing, but use the defaults, you can store your guestOS's wherever you like.


As the code for W7, W8 and P3, P4 are shared with Fusion 3 or 4 which have native support of OS X guests, the "Unlocker" enables this in-built functionality, which VMware block, due to Apple's EULA. Older versions did not have the native support.

OK but my W7 is installed in D:\Progs\Vmware so how do I get the patcher to look into this location?

Hi, new user here ;)

So I take it this patcher looks into the default location of C:\Program Files\Vmware

But what if one is running a 64bit OS in which case it would be C:\Program Files (x86)\Vmware ?

Or what if I have vmware workstation installed on my D: drive?

Is there any way to force it to look into the correct install location?


Oh, and one more question: Why is this patcher actually needed? Reason I ask is I seem to remember succesfully installing OSX (Snow Leopard? Leopard?) a couple years ago as a vmware guest and I don't seem to recall patching my VMW installation then....
