A question about VMware Workstation player

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I haven't used many virtualization programs over the years .. pretty much just daemon tools & Alcohol 120%

 

Im looking to run VMware workstation player within POP-Os that will run Win 10 on it... as Ive heard its better for (some)gaming that virtual box.

 

There are 2 things Im not to sure about still as there is so much info/reading on the web ?

 

1 > Does the current release of Vmplayer/workstation support DX10.1 & 11 yet?

 

2 > Can I use a physical HDD to install games onto that will run within the Virtual Win 10 or is the entire virtual experience ran from a purely a virtual environment e.g virtual HDD?

 

hope that makes sense ?

I do have to ask what sort of games you're wanting to run in a VM?

Yes, just gotta configure the VM to use a physical disk directly.

Hi & thx for the prompt reply + solution ...

 

& in answer to your question its a couple of games  in steam that dont work via native Linux steam or via lupis :(  so my next try will be in wmware & windows 10

 

The games are - Trials Rising & carcassone (atm) .. Im sure there will be more
