Updating machine version file

If you created Workstation 6.5 or 7.x virtual machines and you want to deploy those virtual machines to run on a different VMware product, you might need to downgrade to a version that is compatible with that product.For Workstation 4, 5.x, 6, 6.5 and 7.x virtual machines, you can change the version of the original virtual machine or create a full clone, so that the original remains unaltered.If you are upgrading from a Workstation 4 or 5.x virtual machine, or downgrading to a Workstation 4 or 5.x virtual machine, make a note of the NIC settings in the guest operating system.

When you upgrade Workstation, you must change the hardware compatibility of virtual machines that were created in previous versions of Workstation so that they can use the new features in the new version of Workstation.Follow the prompts in the wizard to change the hardware compatibility of the virtual machine.When you select a hardware compatibility setting, a list of the VMware products that are compatible with that setting appears.You can run older versions of virtual machines in the new version of Workstation, but you will not have the benefits of the new features.If you want a virtual machine to remain compatible with other VMware products that you are using, you might not want to change the hardware compatibility to the latest Workstation version.

To check the NIC settings, use the method appropriate for your operating system.

You can upgrade the hardware version of virtual machines to the latest version of ESXi. For virtual machines that are running on ESXi 5.x, VMware recommends that you upgrade the virtual hardware to version 8.
