NOTICE TO CUSTOMER
If you do not agree to the terms of this EULA, do not install, activate,
or use this software. This EULA is a contract between you (either an
individual or an entity) and VMware, Inc. ("VMware"), which governs
your use of the VMware software product that accompanies this EULA
and related software components, which may include associated media,
printed materials, and online or electronic documentation.
In this EULA, the Desktop software and associated media, printed
materials, and online or electronic documentation are collectively
referred to as the "Software." When installed, the Software enables
you to run one or more instances of third-party operating systems
("Guest Operating Systems") and applications on a single computer system.
A software activation file and a serial number ("Software License Key")
issued to you by VMware are required to use the Software. The term
"Number of Licensed Users" means the number one (1), unless you received
a VMware License Certificate with this software product, in which case
the term "Number of Licensed Users" means the Number of Licensed Users
set forth on the VMware License Certificate.
WARNING FOR EVALUATION LICENSEES
The Software can be activated with a no-cost evaluation Software
License Key. Evaluation Software License Keys have an expiration date
("Expiration Date"). If you activate the Software with an evaluation
Software License Key: (i) you may use the Software until the Expiration
Date only to evaluate the suitability of the Software for licensing
on a for-fee basis; (ii) the limited 90-day warranty below is not
applicable to you; and (iii) THE SOFTWARE IS PROVIDED TO YOU "AS IS"
WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, WHETHER EXPRESS, IMPLIED, STATUTORY, OR
OTHERWISE. VMWARE BEARS NO LIABILITY FOR ANY DAMAGES RESULTING FROM USE
(OR ATTEMPTED USE) OF THE SOFTWARE THROUGH OR AFTER THE EXPIRATION DATE,
AND HAS NO DUTY TO PROVIDE SUPPORT TO YOU.
The Software is licensed, not sold. Subject to the terms and limitations
of this EULA, VMware hereby grants you a nonexclusive, nontransferable
license, without rights to sublicense, to (i) make a number of copies
of the Software less than or equal to the Number of Licensed Users for
the purpose of installing a single copy of the Software on an equivalent
number of computers, each of which is running a validly licensed copy
of the operating system for which the Software is designed; (ii) use
the Software License Key to activate each copy of the Software made in
accordance with sub-clause (i); (iii) have up to the Number of Licensed
Users use the Software (in object code form only) solely for your
own internal information processing services and computing needs; and
(iv) use the documentation accompanying the Software in connection with
permitted uses of the Software. If you are an entity, each copy of the
Software may be used by one designated individual user only. The total
number of designated users may not exceed the Number of Licensed Users.
Each copy of the Software may not be used by any other person, whether or
not such person is employed by or otherwise associated with your entity.
LIMITED SHARED USE LICENSE
For shared use computing laboratory environments within academic
institutions, the license grant above shall be modified to permit use
of the Software on a single computer system without the limitation
that such use be limited to the designated user(s); provided that any
such user(s) agree to and abide by the terms of this EULA; provided
further that you must acquire and dedicate a Software License Key for
each separate computer system on which the Software is installed. Under
this shared computing laboratory use license, a computing laboratory at
an academic institution having ten computers loaded with the Software
on which no more than five users would concurrently access and use the
Software, for example, would require ten Software License Keys. Unless
the computing laboratory is operated and maintained by and within an
academic institution, this limited shared use license does not apply.
You may not copy the Software except for a reasonable number of
machine-readable copies of the Software for backup or archival purposes
and except as expressly permitted in the License section above. You may
not share or use concurrently the Software except as expressly permitted
in the Limited Shared Use License section above. You may not remove
any titles, trademarks or trade names, copyright notices, legends, or
other proprietary markings on the Software. You are not granted any
rights to any trademarks or service marks of VMware. VMware retains
all rights not expressly granted to you.
LICENSE AS UPGRADE OF PREVIOUSLY LICENSED PRODUCT
If you purchased this Desktop software product as an upgrade at the
applicable upgrade price, then you must have previously purchased a
prior version of this Desktop software product at the applicable product
(not upgrade) price. If you have not purchased a prior version at the
applicable product price, then please contact the vendor from whom you
purchased the upgrade, or, if you are unable to contact your vendor,
VMware, to make payment for the difference between the upgrade price

LICENSES REQUIRED FOR THIRD-PARTY SOFTWARE

licenses necessary to operate any such third-party software, including
Guest Operating Systems. In the event that the Software includes a valid
licensed copy of a Guest Operating System for pre-installation with
the Software, the use of such Guest Operating System shall be defined
by the end user license agreement for that Guest Operating System.
By explicitly accepting this EULA, or by installing, copying, downloading,
accessing, or otherwise using the Software and/or Software License Key,
you are acknowledging and agreeing to be bound by the terms of the end
user license agreement for the pre-installed Guest Operating System,
which terms accompany the Guest Operating System.
