    Re: VMServer

    The only official link is

    http://www.vmware.com/download/server/

    I don't know if its not working at the moment and I don't want to clutter up the internet by downloading a 150MB file just to prove it works

    If its not working , then I'd email Mr VMware and report it as a fault.

    regards

    Simon

    What is the actual message you are receiving? are you using a download manager?

    Re: VMServer

    Use a download manager to download it. I use the download them all plugin for firefox. Also make sure you have IIS installed as is a pre req for VM Server.

    Re: VMServer

    VMWare server will happily install without IIS being present. You will get a warning message and be given the chance to cancel the install, but I've installed it on lots of XP PCs without IIS. Not a problem.
