Getting a Free Copy of VMware software from UM
Anyone can download a 30-day trial version of VMWare Workstation (for Windows and Linux) and/or VMWare Fusion (for Mac). Follow the instructions at vmware.com.
If you have been admitted to EECS 182 (or SI 182) or are enrolled in any engineering course, then go to the following link to request a free copy of VMware:
You will have to request a login ID/password at the site (see the link for "Request Access to VMAP" on the right side of the page). Then watch for an email that grants you access (it typically takes up to 3 days). When approved for access, you can return to the page, use the login link on the page, and then download VMware Fusion or VMWare workstation.
If you do not get an email with approval in a few days, let the teaching staff know. Do not wait for your 30-day trial license to expire.
