FYI, I used a way old Parallels 5 Serial and it worked.

$9.99 when you select VMWare 7 Pro.

Must be a pricing error, as VMWare 7 shows $29.99.

Go!

you just need a 34-digit number/string

key below works

12345-12345-12345-12345-12345-1234
123456-123456-123456-123456-123456

Also, re: licensing:
Code:
Can I use a single license on more than one Mac?
VMware Fusion for personal use: 
You may install and use VMware Fusion for personal, non-commercial use on any Apple-branded products running Mac OS X ("Mac Computer") that you own or control.
VMware Fusion for commercial use: 
If you are a commercial enterprise or educational institution, you may install and use the Software on a number of Apple-branded products running Mac OS X ("Mac Computer") that you own or control equal to the number of licenses purchased. Installing and using the Software on multiple Mac Computers with a single license is prohibited even if the computers are not running the Software concurrently.

Anyone use this over Parallels? I tried VMWare Fusion 6, and didn't like it compared to Parallels 8. I'm still using Parallels 8 on Yosemite and everything is working fine.

If you had the latest parallels I wouldn't switch personally, but for $10 an upgrade to the latest version of a commercial VM solution is a non brainer for me.

I got turned off Parallels when they botched the version 3 to version 4 upgrade and it corrupted my windows installation. [A lot of people had issues]

Well i don't see how VMware would know a REAL key or a TRIAL key, they're just checking the key pattern to make sure its valid.
