PALO ALTO, Calif., October 27, 2009 — VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW), the global leader in virtualization solutions from the desktop through the datacenter and to the cloud, today announced that VMware Fusion® 3 is now available. With more than 50 new features, VMware Fusion 3 makes it easier than ever to run Windows applications with Mac simplicity.

With the new built-in Migration Assistant for Windows, VMware Fusion 3 is more than two times faster than other “Switch to Mac” solutions. Users can move their entire PCs – including applications, files documents, and settings – to their Macs with a simple Ethernet cable, a FireWire cable, or even wirelessly.

VMware Fusion 3 includes more than 50 new features and enhancements, delivering a better-than-ever Windows on Mac experience. Key highlights include:

  • Performance, Finely Tuned. Support for 4-way SMP to maximize performance on the latest iMac and Mac Pro. Lower overhead and up to 2X faster resume time for a suspended virtual machine.
  • More Mac-Like Than Ever. Banish the start menu and launch Windows apps from the new “always-on” applications menu, even when VMware Fusion isn’t running. VMware Fusion provides convenient new ways to experience Windows applications like Mac applications.
  • Optimized for Snow Leopard. Built from the ground up for the Mac, VMware Fusion 3 leverages Mac OS X Snow Leopard’s advanced architecture with a new 64-bit core engine and native support for the 64-bit kernel, delivering even better Windows on Mac performance.
  • Ultimate Windows 7 Experience. VMware Fusion 3 will be the first to enable the full Windows 7 experience, side-by-side with your Mac, complete with Windows Aero and Flip 3D.
  • Best-in-Class 3D Graphics. Support for OpenGL 2.1 and DirectX 9.0c Shader Model 3 will enable users to run their favorite 3D Windows games and applications – all without rebooting.

The release of VMware Fusion 3 has been widely anticipated. With more than 10,000 private beta users who have helped shape the features in the product, the VMware Fusion community is eager to upgrade to VMware Fusion 3.

“VMware Fusion gives us the best of both worlds,” said Shandor Simon, director of networking services for Latin School of Chicago. “Our students, faculty and staff get easy access to the Windows-based apps they need with just a few mouse clicks. VMware Fusion proven technology made it easy to migrate our remaining Windows users to the Mac, while providing a safer, more reliable environment for our remaining Windows-based applications.”

“With VMware Fusion, I have a rock stable UNIX base with the ability to run any operating system I may need, allowing me to take my complete test environment on the road,” said Wil van Antwerpen, owner of Antwise Solutions, a software development company. “Now I can reproduce customer issues on alternative OSes, even when I don’t have a direct internet connection to my lab. VMware Fusion 3 improves on this further by bringing Aero support for Windows onto your Mac with amazing hardware accelerated performance.”

“I am a Mac devotee, but most of my clients are Windows users,” said Donald Malm, who runs a consulting service. “The ease in switching between my files and my client’s files when I am in Unity mode in VMware Fusion is exceptional. It allows me to stay dedicated to the Mac experience, but meet my customers’ needs along the way.”

“I am not a virtualization guru, in fact, I know very little about how it all works, but as an early VMware Fusion 3 user, I don’t need to – it just works,” said Dale Puckett, director of operations, Brainworks Software. “At work I use a Dell laptop running 64-bit Windows 7. At night and on the weekends, VMware Fusion 3 makes it possible for me to continue my development using my iMac running Windows 7 side-by-side with Snow Leopard. And as a Microsoft developer, support for features like Windows Aero makes all the difference in the world. ”

Device drivers improve sound, graphics, networking, and storage performance. You can select the drivers to be installed while performing a custom VMware Tools installation or reinstallation.

The set of drivers that are installed when you install VMware Tools depends on the guest operating system and the VMware product. For detailed information about the features or functionality of these drivers, including configuration requirements, best practices, and performance, see the documentation for your VMware product. The following device drivers can be included with VMware Tools.

VMCI Driver
The Virtual Machine Communication Interface driver supports fast and efficient communication between virtual machines and the hosts they run on. Developers can write client-server applications to the VMCI Sock (vsock) interface to make use of the VMCI virtual device.
VMCI driver is installed by default as part of VMware Tools installation. If the user had disabled this VMCI driver in the setup settings during a previous installation, VMware Tools automatically re-installs VMCI driver during the upgrade.
Note: VMCI driver cannot be disabled as the VMware Tools System service functionality is dependent on this driver.​

VMware Tools installation include the VMware AppDefense, a security management and monitoring solution. AppDefense agent can be installed on the guest virtual machine using the VMware Tools installer. However, VMware Tools cannot install the AppDefense component automatically. You need to install the component manually.

Guest Introspection Driver
The two Guest Introspection drivers are the File Introspection driver and the Network Introspection driver. You can install the two drivers separately. When you install VMware Tools, by default, the Guest Introspection drivers are not installed.
  • NSX File Introspection Driver: The File Introspection driver uses the hypervisor to perform antivirus scans without a bulky agent. This strategy avoids resource bottlenecks and optimizes memory use.
  • NSX Network Introspection Driver: The Network Introspection driver supports NSX for vSphere Activity Monitoring.
SVGA Driver
This virtual driver enables 32-bit displays, high display resolution, and faster graphics performance. When you install VMware Tools, a virtual SVGA driver replaces the default VGA driver, which allows for only 640 X 480 resolution and 16-color graphics.

On Windows guest operating systems whose operating system is Windows Vista or later, the VMware SVGA 3D (Microsoft - WDDM) driver is installed. This driver provides the same base functionality as the SVGA driver, and it adds Windows Aero support.

VMXNet NIC Driver
The VMXNET and VMXNET3 networking drivers improve network performance. The set of drivers that are used depends on how you configure device settings for the virtual machine. Search the VMware Knowledge Base for information on which guest operating systems support these drivers.

When you install VMware Tools, a VMXNET NIC driver replaces the default vlance driver.

Paravirtual SCSI Driver
When you create a virtual machine, if you specify that you want the virtual machine to use a BusLogic adapter, the guest operating system uses the SCSI driver that VMware Tools provides. A VMware Paravirtual SCSI driver is included for use with Paravirtual SCSI devices. This driver for VMware Paravirtual SCSI adapters enhances the performance of some virtualized applications. Drivers for other storage adapters are either bundled with the operating system, or they are available from third-party vendors.

For example, Windows Server 2008 defaults to LSI Logic SAS, which provides the best performance for that operating system. In this case, the LSI Logic SAS driver provided by the operating system is used.

VMware supplies a special SCSI driver for virtual machines that are configured to use the BusLogic virtual SCSI adapter. Virtual machines do not need this driver if they do not need to access any SCSI devices or if they are configured to use the LSI Logic virtual SCSI adapter.

Vmware Fusion 64 Bit Download

The driver is included as part of the VMware Tools package or comes bundled with VMware ESX/ ESXi. It is available on the host as a floppy image at /vmimages/floppies/vmscsi.flp. The driver can be used in Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, or Windows 2000.

64 Bit Vmware Workstation

Mouse Driver
The virtual mouse driver improves mouse performance. This driver is required if you use third-party tools such as Microsoft Terminal Services.
Audio Driver
This sound driver is required for 64-bit Windows XP, 32-bit Windows Server 2003, 64-bit Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, and Windows Vista guest operating systems.
Memory controller driver
This driver is required for memory ballooning and is recommended if you use VMware vSphere. Excluding this driver hinders the memory management capabilities of the virtual machine in a vSphere deployment.
Modules and drivers that support making automatic backups of virtual machines
If the guest operating system is Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003, or other newer Windows operating systems, a Volume Shadow Copy Services (VSS) module is installed. For other, earlier Windows operating systems, the Filesystem Sync driver is installed. These modules allow external third-party back up software that is integrated with vSphere to create application-consistent snapshots. During the snapshot process, certain processes are paused and virtual machine disks are quiesced. The modules also support quiescing snapshot on Linux OS
VMware drivers for Linux
The drivers for Linux are automatically installed during your operating system installation, eliminating the need to separately install drivers after OS installation. VMware actively maintains the source code for VMware Paravirtual drivers, VMXNET, VMXNET3 and kernel modules, and any Linux distributions creating new OS releases automatically include the latest VMware drivers.

Do not delete or replace existing inbox drivers for Linux that are distributed by your OS vendors. Deleting or replacing these drivers might cause conflict with future updates to the drivers. Contact your OS vendor or OS community for availability of specific updates to drivers.

See http://kb.vmware.com/kb/2073804 for information about availability, maintenance, and support policy for inbox drivers for Linux.

VMHGFS driver

Vmware Player Windows 10 64 Bit

If you use Workstation or Fusion, you can install the Shared Folders component. With Shared Folders, you can easily share files among virtual machines and the host computer. The VMHGFS driver is a file system redirector that allows file system redirection from the guest operating system to the host file system. This driver is the client component of the Shared Folders feature and provides an easy to use alternative to NFS and CIFS file sharing that does not rely on the network. For Linux distributions with kernel version 3.10 and later, a new FUSE based Shared Folders client is used as a replacement for the kernel mode client.
