What's new in Workstation 6 / VMplayer 2

VMX-file parameters





virtualHW.version = "6"
config.version = "8"

virtualHW.productCompatibility = "hosted" or "esx"

used for WS 6 and VMplayer 2

If you use "esx" this will disable IDE-disks and USB-devices

pciBridge0.present = "TRUE"
pciBridge1.present = "TRUE"

To get more than the 6 PCI-slots you need to enable one or more
Adding one should be enough in most cases.

*.pciSlotNumber = "17"
*.pciSlotNumber = "-1"

inWS 6 you can set the PCI-slot for PCI-cards.
Valid slotnumbers are 16-20 and 32-60.
The SVGA is hardcoded to use slot 15.
The first SCSI-controller should use slot 16.
A value of "-1" means: take the next free slot
