  2. The unlocker works on Workstation 8.0.1 build-528992. I have just updated and applied the unlocker successfully. Use the same VM, no need to create a new one.The good news is Lion is running much much smoother on this build.
  3. Hello First of all thanks to Donk and MSoK for the unlocker and the guide. I have upgraded my SL installation on Vmware player 3.1.4 to Lion on Workstation 8 successfully. I am using W7 x64 Ultimate as host. Steps I followed: 1. I booted into Snow Leopard VM 2. Uninstalled VMsvga2_v1.2.3 and EnsoniqAudioPCI_v1.0.3 using uninstall.sh from http://sourceforge.net/projects/vmsvga2/files/ 3. Reboot the VM 4. Reinstalled Vmware tools from Fusion 4.0.1 (available in Donk's unlocker) 5. Shutdown the VM 6. Uninstalled Vmware player 3.1.4 7. Reboot the host OS 8. Installed workstation 8 9. Unlocked it using Donk's unlocker 10. Upgraded the OS X SL VM to Version: Workstation 8.0 virtual machine after opening it in Vmware workstation 11. Increased RAM of the VM to 2GB (originally I was using 1GB on SL) 12. Boot the VM 13. I mounted the OS X Lion install dmg and started the upgrade 14. It took about 20 minutes "Installing and downloading additional components" 15. It rebooted the VM and continued with the installation - another 20 to 30 minutes 16. After finishing it booted into Lion successfully 17. I reinstalled vmware tools 18. I installed update 10.7.1 I will install the new guestd_patches and Lion EnsoniqAudioPCI files then this will be a very smooth transition. Thank you again
