VMware Player is a freeware virtualization software product from VMware, Inc., previously a division of EMC Corporation. Player can run guest virtual machines produced by other VMware products but cannot itself create new virtual machines. Freeware tools and websites (such as [http://www.easyvmx.com/ EasyVMX] ) also exist for creating VMs, mounting, manipulating and converting VMware disks and floppies, permitting users to create, run and maintain virtual machines.

VMware Player also forms part of the VMware Workstation distribution, for the purpose of site-wide installations with client users not licensed to use the full VMware Workstation product.

VMware needs administrative rights to run on Windows.
