    Hi all,

    I installed VMware v5 yesterday and what an awesome piece of code it is. I thought it was going to be dead complicated but it's actually pretty simple to use. I'd already recommend it to anyone.

    Now to the reason for this post. Is it possible to have a separate window open for each Virtual Machine? I can't work out a way but it would be dead handy for dual monitor displays.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Baba

    Aye
    make sure the vm you want isnt listed in the 'favourites' tab of any other VM window, then you should be able to open it in a seperate instance

    saying that, once your passed the install phase, i recommend switching to RDP/SSH anyway for performance sake ane ease of use

    Thanks phoenix, but...

    I have no vm's in the favourites list, but I still can't see a way to get them open separately. Tried File, Open etc.

    And RDP/SSH??

    I think he means open a separate instance of VMware...not try to open a second one within the same instance.

    Phoenix is referring to the Remote Desktop Protocol.
