VMware Fusion Player - Personal Use License

    Hi,

    I've been trying to sign up for the free personal use license, but the Register Here link or Register button on the page, just gives me a Content Not Available page.

    Is there something I'm missing to complete this registration?

    Try using Firefox or Chrome.

    Following that, incognito or private browsing... The service is functioning, but we suspect there's some cookie/cache collision happening.

    Thanks Mikero​,

    I was already using FireFox, but ended up having to use a guest Chrome window with no ad blockers or anything.

    All working now!

    Its not functioning because people cannot get the registration code. Why is this so difficult - especially for a software company? 

    I've been trying for hours to get the license key. Safari, CHrome, Firefox.

    FIX THE **bleep**ING THING!

    Use private or incognito mode, with no ad or cookie blockers.

    And agree, having websites break when privacy is enabled is annoying.

    For those that it might help, in my case I got it to work eventually by using incognito in Chrome and also by using a NEW EMAIL address. Using incognito alone did not work.

    Does not work, blank white screen, nothing happen even without Adblock. Refresh page, still blank.

    I have tried 2 computers, 6 browsers, and incognito. I only  get the white screen. VMWare need to redesign this website. This is nothing short of a joke. NONE of the offered or "accepted" solutions work. What a complete and utter farce.

    I am also unable to register for the free license. 

    Will some one please post a link to the page where I can do so, and then a VERY explicit description of what link to press. So far, trying to follow the instructions using ANY browser leads me on a fruitless chase.

    Thank you! These instructions worked for me; in particular, using Incognito finally got me past the roadblock where I would sign in, and it would tell me that my account wasn't activated, so I would activate my account, and it would navigate me away from the personal-use-registration page.

    Anyway, much appreciated.
