I’m on a Dell Poweredge 1950 blade server with 2 x Xeon Quad core CPU’s.

I cannot find the VMX file anywhere. After extraction using the full download link, there is only a VMDF file, txt file and html file.

I did this and it is running, but the main reason I wanted mac was for their photobooth app. The app works but none of my cameras show up. They are connected and when they are accessed they light up and everything shows as working but the actual picture never shows on the screen.

I did not get any option to select 10.12 or 10.11 in VMware… I changed the version to “darwin15-64” in the vmx-file.. But now it doen’t work.. It starts and goes almost the whole way with the apple-logo but then i get an error and VMware crashes…?

My virtual operating system (mac OS Sierra) is very slow and a long delay in opening and running programs. please guide me.
processor : Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4210U / ram:4G /gpu: 820 NVIDIA / hp laptop
my setting in virtual operation: 2*2 cpu / 2 G Ram

Installed perfectly. Very easy instructions. What I’m wondering is that since this is a clearly modified VM is it safe?

don

To answer, YES because VMWare keeps the files in the virtual machine. There is a setting in VMWare that lets the virtual machine access all of the files on your computer, but it is off by default to maintain security
