  • 1.  How do I install my copy of Windows 10 Fusion Player 13?

    Posted Apr 17, 2023 05:51 PM

    Hello.  Just installed my personal use copy of VM Fusion Player 13.  Problem is I have no idea how to get my Windows 10 installed on my MBP running OS 13.3.1.  I'm a long time Mac user switching from Bootcamp but have no experience with running Windows in any virtual environment.

    Many thanks, Gord

    Assuming you are on an Intel MacBook Pro, the short answer is:

    I'm not a fan of the "Easy Install" method. I'd much rather go through a standard Windows installation from ISO and input everything myself for maximum control. 

    If you are on an M1/M2 Mac, your first stop should be the Unofficial Fusion 13 for Apple Silicon Companion Guide. There are detailed instructions there on installing Windows 11 (the only version that works on and is supported as a guest by VMware on M1/M2 Macs).

    Thanks very much, the referenced articles filled in a couple of blanks in my understanding of the topic and I was up and running in minutes.  Many thanks for taking the time to respond.

    Cheers, Gord
