ASAv on VMWare Workstation

Has anyone managed to get it running?

It won't work in Workstation.

It won't work in Workstation. You can try and extract the ova using 7zip and mount the vmdk's but you will come across a digital signature problem when it is booting. It just keeps on looping.

You can install in ESXi which works.
