Installing VMware Workstation 14 On Windows 10


The reason I am doing this post, is for anyone new to IT that wants to experiment, and play with other Operation Systems, Create vulnerable systems to attack those in a safe environment without reaping havoc on your home or production network.

If you want to know what virtualization is, please visit my earlier post What is Virtualization?

There are other virtualization hypervisors you can choose. In this post, I will be installing, my favorite, the VMware Workstation 14 Hypervisor.

The installation is simple. For those that wish to follow along, I created a short video below.
