Personalizing your YubiKey in a Windows VMware virtual machine

I was initially frustrated at the apparent lack of a ready-built package for customizing the Yubikey for any Linux distro other than Ubuntu, until I found out that you can use a VMware virtual machine to do it.

First, download the Windows personalization tools from:

Next, open the .vmx file of your Windows VMware image in your favorite text editor

Add the following line at the end of the .vmx file:

usb.generic.allowHID = "TRUE"

Save the .vmx file and start the Windows VMware image
