I'm new on this, and TOTALLY new to the world of programming
I'm trying to download VMware Fusion and I'm using a Macbook Pro.
I'm taking this course online through edX.
I've emailed the centre and they have replied with instructions, however, they don't seem to comply with what is actually going on! After downloading VMware Fusion, I double click the icon in my downloads folder. At first the instructions say "A window should open. Drag the VMware Fusion (or VMware Fusion.app) icon in that window to your Applications folder." However, I don't see this window. All I see is a window with the VMware icon, telling me to double click it to install! Here is a screenshot where it's telling to to simply double click and not drag or anything.
Next, I downloaded appliance 50-19 vmware.ova, that's in my downloads folder:
Next the online instructions say to open VMware by clicking on the icon in the applications folder. I see that it has already mounted itself onto my desktop bar, so after double clicking on it, I see this screen.
The instructions online say:
Next, launch VMware Fusion, as by double-clicking its icon, which should be in your Applications folder. If prompted with a Software License Agreement, click Agree. If prompted to provide a license, select the 30-day trial instead. If prompted to Create New, Convert VM, or Migrate PC, simply click Skip.
I haven't actually been faced with any of these options so am worried why it's so strange on my laptop. I have not needed to use the serial number given to me via email by cs50 bot.
Clearly, I have no idea how to proceed from here or what to do! If I click play on the screen I get this:
Going into File → Import I can't select the appliance, it's faded grey.
Help and guidance on this would be so greatly appreciated, I am having a crisis!
