Fusion developer Régis Duchesne on our new Mac virtualization beta response and how to run headless virtual machines on the Mac (without any UI). Link: CompFusion: Buckle up!.
The corollary feature is that if you
want to start a virtual machine headless in Fusion, all you have to do
is open it up in the user interface, then go to the Apple menu and
select the "Force Quit…" item.
This is the design philosophy we have adopted everywhere for Fusion:
- Keep the user interface dead simple and easy to use for users who use a Mac because they just want their computer to work.
- Expose the power of the VMware platform for technical users and developers.
