I just installed VM Ware on my new iMac. I decided to do this instead of using boot camp. I might use boot camp again someday, but I thought it would be nice to try VM Ware, and it saves time. I only use Windows approx. 20 minutes every month, but hey. ha-ha.

Question though: I'm using the 30 day trial of VM Ware. Does anyone know, if I buy the retail box, if I can use the license key from a retail box, and then it will keep my copy going? Also, if my trial expires before I buy the retail box, when I do buy it, and I enter the new full license key, will my virtual disk still be ok? Again, I don't use windows a lot, so going a week or two without using it while I wait for my box copy to get here won' be a big deal, if all will work again afterwards.

Pretty cool software I must say. Glad to support those guys.

After your trail expires, you should be able to enter a serial number and keep on going.
