VMware has released version 16.2.1 of its virtualization software Workstation Pro. With this program it is possible to create one or more virtual computers on which a large number of different operating systems can be installed. That way they can be used side by side, as opposed to a dual boot setup, which requires choosing one OS or the other. VMware Workstation is available for Windows and Linux, and licenses start at about 220 euros. Version 16.2.1 fixes the following two issues:
- The Color Theme option is not visible in the VMware Workstation preferences.
The color theme is not visible in the VMware Workstation preferences because the feature is now deactivated by default. To use the color theme feature, the user must activate the feature manually.
- The Custom Hardware button in the New Virtual Machine wizard is not working.
While creating a virtual machine, if you click the Customize Hardware button on the New Virtual Machine Wizard, the wizard crashes.
