Do you have an existing XP virtual machine instance to use with
VMplayer? That is, do you have .vmdk files on your hard drive for
VMplayer to open? If not, you are out of luck. As the name implies
VMplayer plays virtual machine clients. It can not create clients. You
need to install VMware Server or VMware Workstation in order to
create/configure a new virtual machine. You also need to have a
Windows XP CD to perform the installation of the OS. (Note: An ISO
image will also work. CD key is also required.)
