    Way to go Joan! If you haven't already done so, next time you boot that VM, install the VMTools which are some utilities that improve the performance of the guest OS in such areas as video, mouse, sound etc...

    Thank you! Now I know it works. Haven't downloaded the ISO yet but now I know it won't be a waste of my limited data allowance when I do.

    I didn't follow any instructions, apart from the ones during the install, I just hope I'd be able to work it out as I went along.
    Instructions are for Noobs (who won't follow them anyway).

    I had no issues installing W10TP in VMware Player.

    I have Win 10 installed in VMware Player and it's working without issues.
    However in Device Manager I have 1 Unknown Device.
    From the Hardware IDs I can't tell if it's for a Floppy Drive or the motherboard chipset...
    Does anyone else using Win 10 in VMware see an error in Device Manager ?

    Seems to me if it is for the MB chipset I'd have a lot of problems...

    When you put an OS in a VM it will use generic drivers for some items or not install a driver at all, such as for your video card.

    Better to just make a partition for it.

    Thanks for confirming it's not just me, and the welcome aboard Derek.
    Yea, I had the name changed so it is the same name on all the forums.

    Thanks for the link I was wondering where I'd get them, I'm in 10 now while playing a bit more.
