Seems to work as advertised. You'll have to edit the script to add your password, to keep it from asking you every time. One, thing is, there is no doc file, and I don't see how to uninstall it. When I tried to just trash the app, it causes VMWare to not be able to launch machines. -Walt

Hello ! Installation is a bit hardy, that's why it is written "Only for advanced users". Follow the installation instructions given in the file "VirtualMachine Help.webloc" otherwise it wouldn't work ! This app is useful for me but we can can do without... So if you don't understand how to install this or have a doubt, don't hurt your head, it isn't the end of time. I hope the dev will try to implement an easier installation process. Another thing : I didn't find the traditional icon of VM. I think it was zapped by the compression method used by the dev, excluding .icns. Or perhaps it's my compression softs... I think this soft is a good idea but neads to be improved. Carry on !

Stay away! Ever since I had this running on my Mac (no benefits noted at all while it was installed) VMware will not work properly. It will not start after a reboot. I've removed and re-installed VMware several times. Still doesn't work. /Mikael

VMware Fusion hasn't worked since I downloaded VirtualMachine 1.4. I've tried to uninstall the app, but I don't how to completely get rid of it. The uninstaller script did not work in Terminal. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Fusion twice. I don't want to have to do it again. Please advise -- immediately!!!! Thank you, sloshu

I removed all growl (isrunning ...) out of the main scripts (thanks to dev thats readable) and now it works without growl also. You can ask me for that script (V1.3) iceguy AT freenet.de

"Non password version can be found on MacUpdate page" - can't see that: still asks for password on every launch.

I'm happy to see that the dev is very reactive and tries to improve his soft according to all the reviews of its users. Good job. Carry on.

From what I have seen of the comments, lack of documentation, no website, or support listed outside of MacUpdate, it would seem to me that this app is primary targeted towards developers, hobbyists and geeks - i.e. not the casual, or unsophisticated user. If indeed this is a useful tool, hopefully it will be target to the average user.

from dev : "Add support for Growl. Only use version 1.2 if you have Growl installed otherwise resort to the previous version, version 1.1." Q: Is it possible you make an version without growl need ( i dont like it) but also has fixes since 1.1 ?
