    Welcome to the Community - You will need a license from VMware to run its software - even the free versions do require you to register with VMware and download a license key -but it is free.

    For the VMs Opersting Systems you do need to obtain the license from the OS manufacturer - for example if you plan to run Windows 2008 you will need to buy a license from Microsoft. This also applies to wahtever applications you will install into the VM.
