Run a Second, Isolated Operating System on a Single PC with VMware Workstation Player

Simple but Powerful Virtualization

With nearly 20 years of active development, VMware Workstation Player builds from the same platform as VMware Workstation Pro and vSphere, making it one of the most mature and stable solutions for local desktop virtualization. Safely and easily run a second operating system as a virtual machine (VM) on a single PC without affecting your main desktop environment and without rebooting.

The Perfect Tool for Learning

The isolation and sandbox capabilities of VMware Workstation Player make it the perfect tool to help you learn about operating systems, applications and how they work. Being able to run a server environment on a desktop PC also allows you to explore software and application development in a “real world” environment without interfering with the host desktop.

Your Path to BYO

With VMware Workstation Player, you can isolate corporate desktops from BYO devices by disabling copy-and-paste, drag-and-drop, shared folders and access to USB devices. Run restricted VMs that are encrypted and password-protected to ensure only authorized users can interact with corporate data. Or combine Workstation Player with Horizon FLEX to remotely manage the delivery and security policies of VMs.

A Secure and Isolated Environment

Run a secure second desktop with different privacy settings, tools and networking configurations to keep your host system safe and secure while browsing online.
