You can download our virtual appliance "project-open-VMware-184.108.40.206.0-final.zip" at:
Please start downloading and installing the VMware Player following the VMware instructions.
All you have to understand about using this technology is that your computer serves simply as a host to run another (virtual) computer that is represented by a couple of files. So when you download the VMware image you are actually downloading an entire computer as a piece of software. When download is finished, unzip the file to a local folder. Please make sure that you have sufficient disk space available.
After download and install, the next step is to load the ]po[ Virtual Machine by navigating to the *.vmx file. Allow the VMware player a few minutes time so that your new computer can start up. In case it takes too much time and you have enough memory available, update the memory allocation for this VMware. In VMware Player you do this by choosing from the top menu bar Troubleshoot/Change Memory Allocation.
