Have you installed vmware player or workstation?

hi,
I’ve not installed them. am stuck at the one point where I cannot move further. I’ve downloaded the VMware but cannot install.

In virtualization ,

You need a special type of architecture for run paravirualized and full virtualizations using hyper-visors…

You may use Oracle VM VirtualBox for that…
