Hello Terrell,

VMware is a popular virtual PC software. It is also available on Mac. But unfortunately, it is not available on your PC.

VMware requires Intel processors to function properly. As you have got other processor other processor or AMD, it is not supported. So you are unable to install it.

You should change your processor in order to use it. Otherwise, it might not be available for you.

Also, VMware Fusion is only available for x64 on Mac.

Go to Apple menu >> About this Mac >> More Info >> Software

If you find this line, it means you have got 32-bit (x86) kernel.

64-bit Kernel and Extensions: No

Upgrade your Mac to 64-bit (x64) to install VMware Fusion.
