30 day trial for VMware Workstation 5
« on: April 10, 2005, 04:40:31 AM »
forgive me if it's been said elsewhere already but there is a 30 day trial version of VMware Workstation 5 available for download http://www.vmware.co...top/ws_features.html

you have to agree to receive email from other companies so be warned.

the product itself looks fantastic though.

 :) great.

quite impressive how vmware workstation 5 works not that i've done a lot with it yet (thanks again to mouser for the review).

has anyone tried the beta 5 RC2 version - just wondered if there was any major difference. does it require a serial and is it also 30 day trial?

The beta versions (including RC2) also require a key to work. The keys were sent to the people who registered for the beta test. There was some time limit on those too :up:.

This is a ridiculous policy.  I'd be really angry if my email address weren't sales@vmware.com.

i have to agree it's not nice but what can you do - they make the conditions up and if you don't supply your email address then you don't receive your serial key to install the software.

it doesn't really worry me as i use a specific address for this kind of situation - open to all junk anyone would like to throw at it. i wouldn't use my personal email address for this sort of thing.

I don't get it--I've tried sales@vmware.com, webmaster@vmware.com, support@vmware.com, and a few others, and nothing seems to work.  Weird.  I guess I'll keep trying.  (Joking...)

This is what http://sneakemail.com was made for.
