    Has the new version of VMware (3.1) improved the performance of Windows 10? I had purchased a license for the older version. Can I use this license in the new version?

      Avukat, VMmark 3.x does not use Microsoft Windows at all (2.x, however, did).

      To quote from the 3.1 User’s Guide: “VMmark 3.0 provided a completely new, highly-automated benchmark installation process; it used free or open-source software throughout, eliminating the need to purchase any software; it replaced DVD Store 2 with DVD Store 3 and added Weathervane, a new application-level cloud performance benchmark; and it added XvMotion as a new infrastructure workload. The workloads and load levels of VMmark 3.0 were completely changed from VMmark 2.x and the benchmark scores were in no way considered comparable.”
