Description of VMware Workstation 9.0.1 Build 894247
Run multiple operating systems on one computer
VMware Workstation is powerful desktop virtualization software for software developers/testers and enterprise IT professionals that runs multiple operating systems simultaneously on a single PC. Users can run Windows, Linux, NetWare, or Solaris x86 in fully networked, portable virtual machines - no rebooting or hard drive partitioning required.
VMware Workstation delivers excellent performance and advanced features such as memory optimization and the ability to manage multi-tier configurations. Essential features such as virtual networking, live snapshots, drag and drop and shared folders, and PXE support make VMware Workstation the most powerful and indispensable tool for enterprise IT developers and system administrators.
With millions of customers and dozens of major product awards over the last six years, VMware Workstation is a proven technology that improves productivity and flexibility. An indispensable tool for software developers and IT professionals worldwide.
VMware Workstation works by enabling multiple operating systems and their applications to run concurrently on a single physical machine. These operating systems and applications are isolated in secure virtual machines that co-exist on a single piece of hardware. The VMware virtualization layer maps the physical hardware resources to the virtual machine's resources, so each virtual machine has its own CPU, memory, disks, I/O devices, etc. Virtual machines are the full equivalent of a standard x86 machine.
• Configure and test multi-tier applications, application updates, and operating system patches on a single PC
• Easily restore or share archived test environments, reducing repetitive configuration and set-up time
• Streamline computer-based training by allowing students to always start from a "clean" state and experiment with multiple operating systems, applications, and tools in secure, isolated virtual machines
• Run software demos of complex or multi-tier configurations on a single laptop
• Accelerate help desk resolution of end-user problems with a library of pre-configured virtual machines

What is new in version 9.0.1 Build 894247
This release of Workstation 9.0.1 adds the following new features and support:
• Support for Ubuntu 12.10 as a host and guest.
• Solaris 11 has been added to guest OS list.
The following issues are resolved in this release of VMware Workstation:
• When powering on a virtual machine with Binary Translation on a SMEP-capable CPU, Workstation no longer causes the host to reset. If you run Windows 8 hosts on IvyBridge processors, VMware strongly recommends that you update your installation of Workstation.
• Several security vulnerabilities have been addressed, including updating third party libraries.
• The Workstation plug-in for Visual Studio has been updated to work with Visual Studio 2012.
• For host systems with more than 4GB of memory, Workstation will use more of the available memory to run virtual machines.
• The ability to mount a .vmdk file as a drive by right-clicking the file in File Explorer has been restored.
• Streaming a virtual machines has been fixed.
• Occasionally, certain elements in the Windows 8 user interface were incorrectly displayed. This has been fixed.
• After disconnecting certain USB devices from a virtual machine, Workstation would prevent devices from being reconnected without restarting the virtual machine. A more comprehensive error handling code has been added to prevent this problem from occurring.
• To improve application startup performance, the data being collected as part of the optional User Experience Improvement Program will no longer be aggregated on every launch of Workstation.
• Remotely retrieving the IP address of an Ubuntu virtual machine with an IPv6 address assigned failed unless an IPv4 address was also assigned to the virtual machine. This no longer occures.
• With IPv6 disabled on the host, the Linux version of Workstation is now able to share virtual machines.
• When you import an OVA file of a virtual machine running the Datacenter version of Windows Server, the network adapter failed to be configured correctly. This is now fixed.
• Closing Workstation in the middle of a cut and paste operation no longer causes the Workstation user interface to crash.
• After unsharing a virtual machine configured to use client-side devices, you can now reconfigure the device settings to use local devices.
• Easy Install on the Linux version of Workstation now recognize all compatible operating systems.
• The VMware monitor has been updated to work with Linux kernel 3.5.
• The network adapter configuration screen now correctly preserves the Custom network settings.
• You can now remove a Network if network settings changes are pending.
• The Use physical drive radio button for a floppy device was disabled when connecting to a shared virtual machine or remote virtual machine a on host without a physical floppy device. This is now fixed.
• Animated cursors are now displayed correctly in a virtual machine.
