Is there a free version that runs on a workstation i've been using it on server 2003 for a while and quite like it but i'd like it on my desktop but it won't install on XP and i can't seem to see a desktop version (could be blind though, or ignorant ).

I have VMware server running on my XP machine.
The onlything that I seem to remember about the installation was that it had to have IIS installed.
I use it to connect to my VMware servers remotely rather than doing a remote desktop to a host server
Use VMWare Server
Ahh you could be right i think it dumped due to a lack of iis and VM Player being installed.
I have just checked my notes that I made at the time and one other thing that may throw you is the limitation of only one virtual web site in XP
You have to stop the default web site by going to:
Computer Management \ Services and Applications \ Internet Information Services\ Web Sites
While you are there start the VMware Management Interface
I'm running VMServer 1.0.3 on XP Pro at home - I just always ignore the IIS msg and carry on- it always works fine.
An I just installed it on a school workstation yesterday and that worked.
Yep it's working fine now, i just assumed that there was a workstation version.
