VMware Player is a freeware virtualisation product. In short it allows you to run various other operating systems on your computer seemlessly, even though you may have Windows 7, Windows Vista or even XP or a Mac OS (Mac OS requires VMware Fusion). This has the benefit of running some of our manuals without you, the end user, having to go through the complex routine of installing it.
NOTE 1: If you have the DVD version, copy the folder from the DVD to your PC first, otherwise VMWare Player will NOT load.
NOTE 2: If you already have VMWare Player installed, skip to step 10.
