You can upgrade to a new version of VMware Fusion in several ways.

Use these procedures to upgrade VMware Fusion.

VMware Fusion has a built-in software updater that checks for updates to VMware Fusion and VMware Tools and downloads and installs them for you.

If you have an earlier version of VMware Fusion, you can upgrade by using the DVD in the software packaging for the current version.

If you have an earlier version of VMware Fusion, you can upgrade to the current version by manually downloading the VMware Fusion disk image from the VMware Web site.

To continue using VMware Fusion after using a free evaluation version or after an existing license has expired, you must purchase a license on the VMware Web site.

You can upgrade VMware Tools manually, or you can configure virtual machines to check for and install newer versions of VMware Tools.

Uninstalling VMware Fusion does not modify existing virtual machines.

If your computer prevents you from upgrading or uninstalling VMware Fusion, you might have to use the Mac Activity Monitor to correct the problem.
