VMware backtracks on supporting pre-Lion clients in Fusion

Blames gaffe in Fusion 4.1 update

VMware will soon reverse an important change introduced with Fusion 4.1, according to an official blog post. Undocumented in the update was the ability to run virtualized copies of the Leopard and Snow Leopard clients. Apple's licensing normally restricts virtualization to Lion, Leopard Server and Snow Leopard Server.

"When the license verification step was added in VMware Fusion 4.1 the server edition check was omitted," VMware now claims. "We are preparing an update.

"Running Mac OS X client in a virtual machine continues to require Lion (purchased from the Mac App Store or a USB thumb drive.) Users should always ensure they remain in compliance with any applicable software license agreements," the company concludes.
