You will most likely need to install a newer version of vmware on fedora 18
or at least do a new install to reconfigure VMware to the new OS and the new naming scheme for the network connections
and to use udev and not the older init system

fedora 18 is very different than 15

then in 6 months redo all the work to install fedora 19 , and so on every 6 months .
