In this article, we will run Windows 8.1 on the virtual machine using the VM Workstation 14/15 virtualization program.
How to Run Windows 8.1 in Virtual Machine using VMware Workstation
Using virtualization programs, you can easily install Linux, Windows or macOS operating systems on your computer.
Although the VMware Workstation 14/15 virtualization program is a paid program, today it is the most powerful and widely used program.
If the VMware Workstation and VirtualBox programs compare, the biggest difference is that one is paid and the other is free. And therefore, people who don’t like to pay a program can opt for the VirtualBox program.
But in a large enterprise network, VMware Workstation/Player is more widely used and preferred. If you are a system administrator or web development, you must be using this virtualization software.
After installing the Microsoft Windows 8.1 operating system, you must install the VMware Tools add-on software. Because, you can use the virtual machine more efficiently, and you can exchange files between the host and the guest machine.
In our previous articles, we installed Windows operating system with this virtual machine software.
