    Because there are users that prefer to work with unpatched executables? The BIOS.440-method works well, IMHO a better method than what you suggested.

    To OP, big thanks!

    searchengine uses BIOS v. 295 from VMware 6.5. VMware 7.0 uses BIOS v. 314.

    Not at all, searchengine's app patches the executable that you HAVE, so if you have 7 that what gets patched (not true!)

    EDIT
    The statement is NOT true, it replaces BIOS resource with 2.95 pre-patched!

    I prefer this method also. Seems to fit my testing better, much more dynamic for me..

    They both have a good place in the community...its a matter of taste and need..:cool:

    Updated Vmware bios 314 ... now incl slp 1.0

    Cucscspr,
    Thanks for the 2 bios you posted.
    After extensive reading and research, in these forums and elsewhere, I have learnt enough to update the 314 bios to include slp 1.0 for DELL.

    I have included the tools and instruction to enable anyone to use it with Vmware Workstation 7.0.0-build-203739.

    Verified with Dell OEM XP Pro and Win 7 Ultimate x64.
    Screenshots included in the rar file.

    Many thanks for all the great info on these forums.

    (See below in Reason: for link to file)

    That's great, thank you!

    Sorry to everyone that I didn't get around to it, just haven't had time till now to do it for 314. I will add it to my post.
