You can import existing third-party virtual machines and run them in VMware Fusion.


Select Window > Virtual Machine Library.


Click the Other Virtual Machines expansion arrow and select the third party virtual machine to import.


Click Import.


Type the name for the imported virtual machine in the Save As field and indicate where to save it.

The default destination is the Virtual Machines folder created by VMware Fusion.

VMware Fusion displays the disk space needed for the import, and the space available on the current disk.


Click Save.

When the import is complete, you see the virtual machine added to the virtual machine list, in the powered-off state.


Click Start Up.

VMware Fusion installs VMware Tools after the virtual machine powers on, and reboots the system after the Tools installation is complete.

You have a separate VMware Fusion version of the third-party virtual machine.
