Very quick post seeing as I don’t have much time right now. Some of you may know that VMware refreshed their products today, and Apple also dropped OS X 10.8.1 for Mountain Lion. In terms of VMware, we can confirm that the VMware Unlocker works for Windows versions of VMware. We can’t confirm this on Mac/Linux seeing as we haven’t tried it yet, but there is no reason why it still shouldn’t work correctly. This means you are safe to update your products to the latest versions. However we recommend that you uninstall the Unlocker, update VMware, then reinstall just to keep it nice and clean. I’m personally running an OS X 10.8.1 VMware installation with no issues. If anybody has any issues with the unlocker on this new series, please let us know in the comments. Oh, and we’ve uploaded a new version of VMware Tools to our Mediafire folder and we’ve also update the darwin.iso stored there. These tools should install just fine on Mountain Lion installations.
As for OS X 10.8.1, we haven’t tried it (widely) yet but I took a quick glance into the update and nothing jumps out at me that might cause an issue for others. Instead of going purely on me saying that however, please take a snapshot before you update in case there is some issue. Doing this will allow you to recover any data that would otherwise be lost. As I mentioned earlier, I have it running just fine on my machine, but it’s never easy to say it’ll be fine for everything. Again, please let us know in the comments if an OS X 10.8.1 VMware installation poses a problem and we’ll take a look into it ASAP, however as I said I can’t see any immediate issues. If there is an outstanding issue, then it shouldn’t take too long to track down seeing as it’s a fairly small update.
Oh, and one last thing; the issue I mentioned earlier about VMware still exists in these new products so I’ll post about that soon.
