VMware Fusion Installation
You can either order a CD version of VMware Fusion or download the software from VMware. The software costs approximately $79.99, though rebates and discounts are offered from time to time.
After downloading the file, double-click the file which will be in the format VMware-Fusion-e.x.p-buildnumber.dmg. This is a disk image file. Double-clicking it mounts the file so you can install VMware Fusion. Open a Finder window and select the VMware Fusion volume you just mounted. Double-click the VMware Fusion icon with the .pkg extension.
Follow the installation assistant prompts to finish the VMware Fusion installation, such as choosing the installation location. Enter your serial number when prompted. If you do not have a serial number, you can purchase one or continue using the software on a trial basis. Restart your system after the installation completes.
After installation, open the Applications folder and double-click VMware Fusion.app. From this screen, you can create a new virtual machine, browse for existing machines, open virtual machines or download pre-configured virtual machines from VMware Fusion. You can use the Windows Easy Install feature to install certain Windows operating systems, which makes Windows installation easier for beginners. For help installing other operating systems, see the VMware Fusion Help section. The Virtual Applicance Marketplace from VMware Fusion provides downloads of virtual machines for many open source operating systems in addition to Windows. After operating systems are installed, you can then install Windows and open source applications.
