Release notes:

What’s New

This release of VMware Workstation adds support for VMware vCloud Air Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand and includes bug fixes.

About Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand

Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand is a secure, pay-as-you-go, cloud computing service offered by VMware that gives IT organizations a VMware compatible platform to create virtual machines, dynamically scale virtual machines and resources up or down, and pay for resources allocated.

  • Virtual Private Cloud OnDemand provides on-demand resources with granular metering and usage-based billing.
  • Resources are pool-based, allowing deployment of virtual machines with customized configurations.
  • Costs are billed monthly only for the aggregate amount of resources consumed across all of your virtual machines.
  • On-demand resources complement the subscription services for vCloud Air.

The following issues were resolved in VMware Workstation 11.1.

  • A Linux guest OS booted on EFI firmware sometimes failed to respond to the keyboard and mouse if any mouse motion occurred during a short window of time during OS boot. This issue has been resolved.
  • Outlook 2010 would occasionally crash when running in Unity mode. This issue has been resolved.
