The VMWare Player version that i use currently is 3.1.4 .
Pretty sad that i could not run it in the VM PLayer . There were suggestion from few of my friends that using VMWare Workstation 8 will install the Windows 8 .
I am already downloading VMWare Workstation trial version . Lets see if this works . If this doesnot work , I would try Virtual Box instead
