Just One Small Issue With Mac OSX Yosemite

Screen Shot 2014-10-18 at 4.53.28 pmMac OSX Yosemite came out yesterday, and I was out all working for a client, and then a friend came over to drop some packages over that he is storing under my house whilst he finds a new place to leave. That friend leaves after 11pm, so I did not get a chance to do much more than kick off the process of installing Yosemite last night.

So today I started looking at which applications I could delete since I no longer use them, or they come free with the latest version of OSX. I saw VMware Fusion had a cross through it, so I tried to run it. It said VMware Fusion 4.1.4 is too old and will not run under Yosemite. Checking the VMware Web Site, it seems that I don’t have many options. The current version of VMware Fusion is version 7, and my version is so old that they no longer offer upgrades for it.

Since all my accounts are done under Windows Vista under Fusion, I had no choice but to buy a new license. I was not happy about it, and actually looked at moving to Parallels Desktop, but in the end I decided to stay with Fusion. Thankfully this seems to be the only program I need to replace, and now I have, I can invoice my client for yesterdays work!
