I have downloaded and installed VM ware to my mac computer, when i want to create a new virtual machine I go to;

  1. more options because i don't have an disk image and if cs50 appliance is that image it won't let me open anything
  2. i go to create custom virtual machine
  3. select linux; latest version
  4. boots up and says file not found

I would like to know the correct way of starting a new virtual machine on a mac for linux and successfully integrating the cs50 appliance into it.

thank you.

If you follow the instructions here https://manual.cs50.net/appliance/2014/fusion/ In step 5 you will download the appliance file from http://mirror.cs50.net/appliance50/2014/releases/29/appliance50-2014-vmware.ova

Its this appliance50-2014-vmware.ova file which you need to open in VMWare Fusion.

If you are unsure of how to do this, instructions can be found here: https://pubs.vmware.com/fusion-7/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.vmware.fusion.help.doc%2FGUID-12071C22-6087-4AC4-A039-C0F0E43F29B6.html
