Installing VmWare Workstation on a system with Hyper-V

I decided to compare VmWare Workstation 9 to Hyper-V in Windows 8. However if Hyper-V is installed in Windows 8, VmWare Workstation won’t install stating: “Error: This Product may not be installed on a computer that has Microsoft HyperV installed.” I have not found a solution for this, but there is a workaround to dual-boot Windows 8 with or without Hyper-V started by setting “hypervisorlaunchtype” to off in an alternative choice in the boot menu.
