Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How do I use the VMware Fusion Tech Preview?
The Vagrant VMware utility expects VMware Fusion to be installed in a specific path on macOS. Since the VMware Fusion Tech Preview installs into a different path, the Vagrant VMware utility will fail to detect the installation and will not start. To resolve this you can create a symlink from the VMware Fusion Tech Preview installation path to the normal VMware Fusion installation path:
sudo ln -s /Applications/VMware\ Fusion\ Tech\ Preview.app /Applications/VMware\ Fusion.app
Q: How do I upgrade my currently installed Vagrant VMware plugin?
You can update the Vagrant VMware plugin to the latest version by re-running the install command:
$ vagrant plugin install vagrant-vmware-desktop
To upgrade the Vagrant VMware utility, download the latest version from the Vagrant VMware utility downloads page and install the system package to your local system.
Q: Do I need a license for the Vagrant VMware plugin?
No, the Vagrant VMware plugin has been open sourced under the MPL. A license is no longer required for using the Vagrant VMware plugin. If the plugin you are using still requires a license, simply upgrade your plugin:
$ vagrant plugin update vagrant-vmware-desktop
