– Select platform as “Virtual Box” . Note if you have VmWare player then you should select VmWare.

Click on Get it now.  Note: It would ask you to fill your personal details:
After adding your details . Click continue.. It would ask you to accept Cloudera standard license. Accept the license & click Submit
