This is the current version of VMware Tools for OS X / macOS from the VMware CDS repository for Fusion 11.5.0
VMware are no longer including the ISO images as separate "packages" in the CDS respository as of Fusion 11.5.0, instead the ISO images are included as part of the "core" download which is 522 MB.
It is not possible to download the com.vmware.fusion.zip.tar due to upload limits.
However, I have extracted the darwin.iso and darwinPre15.iso from the "core" and uploaded to this thread.
If you prefer to download the "core" tar file and extract the ISO's they are located in the following directory in the tar file:
Please note: In the latest VMwareGfx.kext from Fusion 8.5.5 onwards VMware have discontinued the 2D-Acceleration code, and graphics performance is better now, thanks to Zenith432 for the update.
To check for the latest version visit http://softwareupdate.vmware.com/cds/vmw-desktop/fusion/.
The various VMware Tools downloads are located under the packages folder for each version upto and including 11.1.0.
Instructions for extracting darwin.iso and darwinPre15.iso
- Download the files above
- Extract com.vmware.fusion.tools.darwin.zip.tar
- darwin.iso is located in the "payload" folder
- Extract com.vmware.fusion.tools.darwinPre15.zip.tar
- darwinPre15.iso is located in the "payload" folder
I use this setup (X79 Deluxe - 4930K - HD6870) as an audio rig. It all works fine, I'm only experiencing stability issues with everything USB (audio sound card, MIDI controllers). Logic Pro X keeps randomly losing sync with them.
I installed GenericUSBXHCI (v1.2.11) from the rampagedev X79 dmg. Has anyone successfully used other USB kexts? I mostly use USB 2 ports.
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
Please read the readme.txt file for details.
