    I downloaded version 2.0.4 but does not install past the introduction. I have redownloaded it twice and each time it does not install. Can anyone tell me why?

    Donald, make sure you shut down the VMware Fusion application before you run the installer. The installer checks for a running Fusion application and will not continue past the installer Intro screen if it finds one. If you do not have Fusion running and still have this issue, the best place to get help is the VMware Fusion community forum at http://communities.vmware.com/community/vmtn/desktop/fusion

    Seems to be a memory hog — it is filling all 4 GB of memory (about 1 G higher than 2.0.3).
