Free Software

Fusion 12 Player replaces Fusion 11.5 ‘standard’, and follows the same pricing and licensing model as Workstation Player, meaning that it is both free for Personal Use, but requires a license for Commercial Use.  Fusion Player has the same features as Fusion 11.5.x ‘standard’ and more.

So if you’re a home user who switched to Mac but want to use Windows for things like DX11 games or other personal apps, you can do so, for free, with a Personal Use License.

Fusion 12 Player also comes with our developer-centric container runtime and CLI, vctl, including the new capability to deploy Kubernetes clusters with KIND.

And by popular demand from our customers with larger footprints, new commercial licenses for Fusion Player are now available for purchase from our Channel Partners with either 1 or 3 years of Support and Subscription, even if the order quantity is only 1.

Customers at store.vmware.com can now optionally add SnS in increments of 1 unit as well.
