Complimentary VMware Workstation

Um, I've been all over the VCP Portal and I swear you can get a legit copy of VMware Workstation after getting the VCP, anyone know how you procure this? - email VMware?

    I received an email from [email protected] with the key and a link. I believe I received it a good month or so after I passed the VCP550.

    I got mine when they sent the physical cert. That was a while ago, so the process might have changed. The annoying part is that you only get a free workstation license with DCV. None of the other VCP will get you a free license.

    Even more annoying, you can't upgrade the complimentary version.

    Email [email protected] for a quicker answer. But like the others have said mate, you may need to wait for a month or something like that.

    Are you currently enrolled at WGU? They offer several VMware products including workstation/fusion for free through DreamSpark.

    The key indeed comes with your cert. It is printed on the welcome letter. Easy to miss.

    Does vmware actually send a physical certificate? I just got my VCP and I'm about to change my current address.
