VMware provides cloud computing and virtualization software and services, their most important products are:
VMware Workstation Player, is a virtualization software package and can run existing virtual appliances and create its own virtual machines (which require an operating system to be installed to be functional). VMware Player is available for personal non-commercial use.
VMware Workstation Pro, it enables users to set up virtual machines (VMs) on a single physical machine, and use them simultaneously along with the actual machine. Each virtual machine can execute its own operating system, including versions of Microsoft Windows, Linux, BSD, and MS-DOS.

You should have a valid license to work with VMware Workstation Pro.
