In order to run the virtual machine (VM) that contains the CbC Reporting Solution, you will need to install VMware Workstation Player 15.x or VMware Fusion 11.x. You can download the latest these VMware players from the VMware.com website. The description below applies to both players.
Install VMware Workstation Player on any suitable machine on your network. On opening the player, you will see a screen like the one shown in the screenshot below.
In the player, you can create new VMs and open existing VMs. Any VM you create or open is listed in the player library, which is shown in the left pane of the player window (see screenshot above). After you download the VM that contains Altova's CbC Reporting Solution, open the CbCR VM in the player. The VM will be added to your player library.
After the CbCR VM has been opened and is running in the player, the solution that is contained in the VM can be accessed by typing its URLs in a browser. Usage scenarios vary anywhere between the two listed below:
•A single user accesses the player, manages the player's VM library, and works with the solution via a web browser.
•An administrator manages the VM library. Multiple users work with the solution via web browsers, but they are not involved in the management of the VM library.
Depending upon the working environment, suitable access and security permissions must be set for the location where the VMware Workstation Player is located.
