well yikes: fwiw, in workstation pro Help | support | submit support request now navigates to nowhere. So I went to VMware webpage and navigated from there and it seems now the gatekeeper is an AI chat bot, and I basically went in circles. Eventually got to VMware Community forum, but overwhelming and somewhat intimidating to me. I had paid for support in past maybe it expired, rarely needed rarely used, I'd send an email and get a quick helpful email reply. Today, bottom line limited info I found / gleaned is that Workstation Pro 16.2.5 is still "supported" -- so I'll close my eyes and click my heels 3x and assume my VM is current and safe -- :rolleyes: Not sure this link will load without preclearance from their security bot :whistle:
