Is it possible to configure a VM to connect to two USB dongles on the same AnywhereUSB14 device.

Yes. The "Group" number (of the AWUSB/14) that the VM would connect to would need to be configured for / "mapped to" 2 or more USB ports.

Yes you can use up to two USB devices in your VM if both your host operating system and your guest operating system support USB.for example, that Windows NT and Linux kernels older than 2.2.17 do not support USB.

Although your host operating system must support USB, you do not need to install drivers for your USB devices in the host operating system if you want to use those devices only in the virtual machine.

To take advantage of the USB support, you must create your virtual machine using the New Virtual Machine Wizard (on Windows hosts) or Configuration Wizard (on Linux hosts) in VMware Workstation.
