Our team made a little application, then created in VMware Player a Windows XP virtual OS and installed the application into it. Now the guy who is going to use wants us to make an image of it, burn it on a DVD and send it to him. What exactly should I burn on a DVD ? Does he need .ISO or .VMDK file ? He will then run that virutal Windows XP on his PC via VMware Player as we did.
You should burn the .VMDK, and .VMX files on the DVD. The best if you burn the whole directory, where the virtual machine is.
This way he can copy the files to his PC to run the VM. You can't run the VM on the DVD, though.
