    Hi,
    Is a clean install required or just overwrite? Please advise.

    Thanks,

    When you launch the setup it will ask you to uninstall if a previous version of VMWare is detected.

    Just to inform you guys that on vmware 8 you can install Windows 8 because it requires ACPI 2.0.

    Thanks,
    Ziaul

    Note that is only the processor requirement. This new version will still run on 32bit XP SP2. It's just the processor has to be 32 bit ready.
