  1. Yes there is a different release now for hosted products.
  2. That's fine. I deliberately split ESXi fromn Windows/Linux so can have separate release schedules if needed.
  3. I am still confused. The readme is correct you should not need the chmod command. The archive is uploaded to ESXi and use SSH or Tech Support Console to login and extract the contents. The permissions are correctly set in the gzipped tar file. Don't extract on another system and upload. [root@vm-esxi670:/vmfs/volumes/5b41f592-268e512b-943f-000c29347f00] tar tzvf esxi-unlocker-300.tgz -rw-r--r-- dave/staff 4125 2018-09-27 07:02:45 unlocker.tgz -rwxr-xr-x dave/staff 336 2018-09-27 07:02:45 esxi-install.sh -rwxr-xr-x dave/staff 341 2018-09-27 07:02:45 esxi-uninstall.sh -rwxr-xr-x dave/staff 189 2018-09-27 07:02:45 esxi-smctest.sh -rw-r--r-- dave/staff 2629 2018-09-27 07:02:45 readme.txt [root@vm-esxi670:/vmfs/volumes/5b41f592-268e512b-943f-000c29347f00/esxi-unlocker-300] ll esxi-*.sh -rwxr-xr-x 1 501 20 336 Sep 27 07:02 esxi-install.sh -rwxr-xr-x 1 501 20 189 Sep 27 07:02 esxi-smctest.sh -rwxr-xr-x 1 501 20 341 Sep 27 07:02 esxi-uninstall.sh
  4. What is missing +x? I just took a look at the archive and it was OK. Yep - none of this will work with secure boot, which is a VMware design decision. No way around it but will add to readme for next release.
  5. You can open Terminal in macOS and run: /Library/Application\ Support/VMware\ Tools/vmware-tools-daemon -v
  6. I assume you use my unlocker. Get the latest version 3 and run gettools.exe. You should end up with the lastest iso images for macOS in the VMware installation folder. You will need to manually load these as attached CD-ROM in the guests and then update. The "Install VMware Tools" menu item and auto update never ran reliably as Workstation and Player are not supposed to support macOS as a guest.
  7. Intel chipsets shopuld not matter as VMware has a "virtual chassis" that it emulates, unklike the CPU which iit virtualises. Just make sure you get a CPU with VMX Unrestricted Guest mode, as that is a new dependency for VMware products. Of course needs, VT-x and EPT as well.
  8. The unlocker cannot make this work. AMD macOS kernels are needed because macOS does not support AMD CPUs. You will find the details on the forums for setting up an AMD Hackintosh. I may add a warning to the unlocker installer but it is still useful if you have AMD macOS setup available.
  9. It is an addon to the unlocker to remove server checks for Leopard/Snow Leopard. It used to be fixable in the unlocker code but changed a couple of releases back.
  10. I will look into it but the firmware is embedded in the executables. There is a way to extract so will try and sort it out for you.
  11. This is fixed in 3.0.2 where I have recompiled the PyInstaller runtime.
  12. Just released a patcher for EFI firmware in VMware which allows use of non-server versions of 10.5 and 10.6.
  13. Here is a new utility to patch the EFI firmware in VMware Workstation and Fusion to allow the non-server versions of Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) and 10.6 (Snow Leopard) to run. Yoiu will need macOS unlocker 3 if you are using Workstation on non-Apple hardware. I still have to find a way to do this on ESXi as the UEFIPatch utility will not run in the ESXi console. This currently supports: Workstation 11/12/14/15 on Windows and Linux Workstation Player 7/12/14/15 on Windows and Linux´╗┐ Fusion 10/11 on macOS https://github.com/DrDonk/efi-unlocker/releases/download/1.0.0/efi-unlocker100.zip https://github.com/DrDonk/efi-unlocker Please read the readme.txt file for details. readme.txt
  14. There is a new topic for v3 so best posting in that thread.
