Create Virtual Machine for VMWare Player


I downloaded VMWare Player from here and tried to create a new VM. Apparently only existing VMs can be opened with the player. I didn’t want to install VMWare Server on my laptop and found this great post on how to create a new VM without VMWare Server http://johnbokma.com/mexit/2005/10/26/vmware-player-windows-xp.html

Update: apparently there is a way to build VM images online at www.easyvmx.com as found in this post
