I need to install and use Windows Insider running as a guest in vmware. I have an available license for vmware workstation 12, which appears to be the maintenance release branch. Will these two work with each other?
There are conflicting reports. First, vmware says that Windows 10 is a supported Guest OS on Workstation 12 and 12.5. No mention of Windows Insider Preview builds, though. But the workstation 14 release notes say that Windows 10 Creators Update is now supported as a guest.
If Creators Update is only supported as a guest in vmware workstation 14+, how can vmware claim that Windows 10 will run with the older workstation 12 branch?
I suspect that Windows Insider Previews will not work with workstation 12 and don't want to lose a bunch of hours trying to make it work (I am new to both vmware and windows). But if you know that they DO work together, let me know, and I won't have to buy another vmware license!
