If you are a Hackintosh user in desktop visualization software, then VMware Workstation is a must so as to make USB installer, restore images and many more. For doing all these on your VMware Workstation, it is mandatory to have “VMware unlocker” which is a necessary utility to run Mac OS X guests. VMware Workstation is a hypervisor that enables users to set up one or more virtual machines (VMs) on a single machine, and use them simultaneously along with the actual machine. If you’ve never ever tried the Mac OS X Operating system using VMware, then you need to know that we use a patch called VMware Workstation Unlocker that helps to unlock the option to create virtual machines in Mac OS X.
Unlocker utility is capable of replacing few VMware program files which allow you to install VMware and run the latest 11, 10.10, 10.19 and earlier versions of Mac OS X guest virtual machines. Here are the download links of perfectly working unlocker for latest VMware Workstation 11, 10, and other series versions that works on Windows 10, 8.1, 8 (64 bit) and Windows 7 (32 bit) physical computer.
Unlocker utility is a patch which is used to unlock the option to create virtual machines in Mac OS X. By unlocking it using Unlocker utility, you can easily create virtual machines in Mac OS X as guest operating systems. There are many virtual machines such as Yosemite, Mountain Lion and Mavericks that can be used as guest operating systems on VMware workstation. Now, this unlocker utility patch is required if you want to install and use the above mentioned Mac OS X virtual machines as guest Operating Systems on VMware workstation 11 or 10. Earlier, there were some versions of Mac OS X like Snow leopard 10.6 and leopard 10.5 that run on VMware desktop virtualization products even without using this unlocker utility patch. But now, the latest versions of Mac OS X requires patching.
