currently I am in a further education for an administrator of virtualization. I installed in the past multiple virtual machine on my own computer. I did this not only to train on Windows Server 2012 R2 or other systems. I've never worked before in this business. All what I did till now at the computer was my hobby.
I also write web sites and for this case I had installed Ubuntu with bind. I use this as dns server for watching the web sites on my mobile devices within my local network.
At my ubuntu I have the IP address 192.168.0.108, Subnet 255.255.255.0, Gateway and DNS 192.168.0.1.
At my windows server I have 192.168.0.150 as IP address, 255.255.255.0 as Subnet, 192.168.0.1 as Gateway and DNS.
If I start my computer the first time and want to use the virtual machines then I have no access in my local network. In the case that I restarts my computer and want to use my virtual machines then I can use it without issues.
At the beginning I used only Ubuntu in the VMware Player and I thought this is an issue with Ubuntu. In this week I also installed the Windows Server 2012 R2 for preparing to the next exams of Server 2012.
I can't ask my lecturer in this case after he gave me the hint to use bind as DNS because of my web sites. He told me after he installed Ubuntu Core on a old computer for testing a new proxy that he have the same issue "Destination Host unreachable". He has no solution.
I hope, someone can help me and will explain where is the issue.
I have used VMWare player for ages in a Windows environment and now am running a MacBook. I cannot find a download link for the player anywhere. Every search bring me to a trial download of Fusion. Is there no Mac VMWare player? If there is, please point me to it. Thanks.
Bonus Question: If you are going to force Mac users to cough up $$$ when Windows users get by with free players, why are you charging twice the price of the competion? Do you WANT me to buy Parallels? I just lost a lot of respect for VMWare tonight. Thanks for the eye opener.
Host: Windows 8.1 64-bit running VMWare Player 7.1
Guest: CentOS 7 64-bit
I would like to have a CentOS 7 guest VM automatically launch when a Windows user logs in (with the Player console window visible). I've tested this using the command "C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Player\vmplayer.exe" "C:\path\to\Virtual Machines\CentOS 7\CentOS 7.vmx" - entered directly in a Scheduled Task that runs on logon, or launched via a batch file.
Either method works (including launching the batch file outside of a scheduled task) - the console GUI opens, and some automatic tasks in the guest OS run eventually. However, when launched this way, the VM is extremely slow - exponentially slower than the same VM launched manually via the Player GUI. Stopping the automatically- (or batch-file-) launched instance and immediately launching the GUI and running the same VM is noticeably faster (normal speed). The guest VM is running the latest VMware Tools.
Any idea why the speed of the VM would be so dramatically reduced when not launched using the Player GUI?
I installed the VMware player 4.0.1 update and now I cannot run any of my Linux guests. Get lots of permission errors, even though I have full control over the files and directories as user and administrator. So I look in the log file and find lots of error messages like the following:
The problem here is that I am running WMware Player, NOT VMware Workstation.
The "VMware Workstation" folder is empty, the config.ini file is in the "VMWare Player" folder.
Anybody know how to fix this?????
Hello, i have a problem with running ubuntu in VM player 7. I am running Win7 64bit OS. I am experiencing the following error message: "Error while powering on: Internal error" when i try to power up a VM. I tried to reinstall VM player, but without any success. Adding a new VM and run also fails.
The logs are below, Thanks.
Trying to figure out what the /cfgfile can do for me when installing Player. Would it be possible to predefine NAT subnet, DHCP scope, VMnet8 IP address etc.?
I know I can manipulate these settings from the command line after installing, but trying to set up the easiest way to have end users install Player with predetermined NAT settings.
I'm trying to run a VMware Conversion of an old laptop as a backup. I've run a VMware conversion and converted it to a vm 9 image file.
When it gets opened in VMware Player everything works except for the keyboard inputs. The only way I can type on the screen is using either the on screen keyboard or connecting in with TeamViewer.
Looking in Device Manager shows that the following error.
Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)
Has anyone come across this before and know if a solution?
I have installed Black Lab Linux v-6.5, the latest, in VMware Player v-7.1.0 build2496824, without any errors or warnings, until I installed vmware-tools. At that point got the error messages that are in the attached log file.
I should mention that the drag and drop function between the host and the client are functional. Whoever, I should like to be able to access the Host C:\ drive from the client.
Thanks in advance.

Is there some trick to installing VMWare Tools on VMW Player for Windows. Have tried in both Player 7.1.1 and 6.0.5.
I have downloaded the "darwin" and "windows" versions of tools with versioning that matches the Player versioning (6.05 Tools for 6.05 Player). But I don't know how to get VMWare to see the downloaded files. I have linked the darwin.iso in the payload folder to the CD/DVD Player under VM Settings.
I still get a dialogue box with this message when I select Install VMWare Tools from menu:
"Could not find component on update server. Contact VMware Support or your system administrator."
I have VMware 6.0.5 (32-bit) installed in Windows 7 Pro (32-bit), and I installed Windows XP Pro (32-bit) as my guest OS. Despite setting the USB controller compatibility to USB 3.0, and installing my printer software in my XP guest, neither my USB 3.0 external hard drives nor my printer are shown as present in my XP Explorer or anywhere within XP.
Is this because WinXP does not support USB 3.0? Should I plug my external hard drives and printer into USB 2.0 ports? Is there a procedure that I am missing.in order for my guest OS to access my USB devices, whether 2.0 or 3.0?
Update #1: I plugged my USB hard drive enclosure into a USB 2.0 port, and still nothing showed up in my WinXP Explorer. When I tried to disengage the enclosure, in order to return availability to my Win7 host, I got this error inside my XP guest:
"Unable to connect the USB device "(null)" to the virtual machine (error code 13). Contact VMware, Inc. technical support for assistance"
Why is this?
Update #2: When one procedure fails, i try another. You never know what you will discover...
...In this case, I have discovered that my external hard drive enclosure cannot be activated while my WinXP guest is running, because both my guest and my host will attempt to access it at the same time, and neither will succeed. nothing showed up in the Disk Explorers in both my Win7 host and WinXP guest. When I tried to disengage, that is when Error 13 popped up.
The rule here, at least in my case, is to activate my external drives or plug in my USB flash drives BEFORE activating my guest OS. Once my guest is up an running, I can go to my menu, find USB-SATA Bridge, and click on "Connect (Disconnect from host)", and my USB devices will be disengaged from my host and activated in my guest...
...Unfortunately, it works only for devices plugged into USB 2.0 ports. With the USB 3.0 ports, WinXP needs a hardware driver, and I'm pretty sure my WinXP installation DVD doesn't have a USB 3.0 driver. Unless there are USB 3.0 drivers that Microsoft officially supports (the Web sites of which I don't know where to look), I'll have to stick to using the USB 2.0 ports.
Update #3: Here is another problem regarding the USB ports. After my WinXP guest failed to recognize any USB storage device plugged into a USB 3.0 port, I reset the compatibility back to USB 2.0 and plugged the devices into the USB 2.0 ports. But this time, when I re-established a connection with my WinXP guest, my guest system freezes. The devices don't show up on my WinXP Explorer, and I get this error: "Error reading the Autologin state: Internal error." System Restore did not solve the problem.
Has anyone had an issue with getting Player 7.0 or 7.1 to install on Windows 8.1 64-bit ?
The installer hangs at the stage where it's attempting to install 'vcredist_x86.exe' which is the Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable.
Is there a way to get around this? My system already has a few different versions of the Visual C++ Redistributable for both x86 and x64 - from other Microsoft product installs.
Thanks in advance
-- EDIT --
I think I may have a resolution to this, just as I'd given up and posted this question..
When the installer hangs at the Visual C++ installer stage.. the installer screen shows the vcredist installer is located in 'C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Temp\vmware_1427535481' (I'm not sure if that last number relates to a process id?)
Either way I found the installer files in that location, and through a process of triall and error I got the player to install by running the command: 'vmwareplayer.msi EULAS_AGREED=1' this enabled the install to complete.
As a user of VMware products since 2006, I'd expect a better level of QA testing from VMware.
I have an application that runs at all times on a Windows 8.1 VM and it's a Metro style app. Whenever the resolution drops below 1024x768 it closes. I have a problem with VMWare Player, latest version, that when I remote into the computer VMWare Player is running on, and it pulls up on the desktop, it resizes to a smaller size due to the size of the client connecting to it. Is there a way with VMWare player to force it to 1024x768 resolution and never to change? I would prefer if the host resolution changed, that the VM would have scroll bars on the side so it keeps running. I've tried a few settings but nothing has worked so far. VMWare Player is the latest and running on a Windows 7 computer. Any thoughts?
Would you mind answering me on the following two questions, although only second one matches discussion title:
1. I have ISO image file on my windows 8.1 desktop. Inside is NOT guest operating system but it is wanted application/software I want to use. It works only in Linux, thats why I have to use vmware player. I wonder if there is any method that I could use (even uploading this file somewhere, although it is very big size) to get the answer on the following question (the question isn't meant to ask you, who are reading this, but searching for method that provides answer on the question): Which Version of Linux guest OS do I have to use and pick from Version dropdown menu, so I can use the particular ISO file within vmware player?
2. My windows 8.1 is 64-bit. Therefore I randomely chose (i have no idea why and based on what) from Version dropdown menu, the version ''Ubuntu 64-bit''. It didn't work because when black console occurred, I got popped up error message which is (for now) out of the scope of this discussion. So I decided to randomely choose another Version. This time I chose ''Ubuntu'' (note: ''Ubuntu'' and ''Ubuntu 64-bit'' are two different entries in version dropdown menu!) and I didn't get the same error for which I just said it is out of the scope of this discussion. However I got different one, directly in console text and not via popped up window, which is the main reason for opening this discussion:
PXE-MOF:Exiting Intel PXE ROM
Operating system not found
Since I am completely new with vmware player, I am most likely going to ask the most basic question in the history of vmware player's existance: Do I have to install guest os first BEFORE using the ISO image of wanted application that works on Linux only?
Thank you in advance.
I have created a RHEL v6.4 64 Bit OS VM Image on my VMWare Workstation v8.0.1 build-528992 on my Windows 7 64 bit OS laptop (Box-1) and it runs fine when executed on the same laptop. See attached screenshot of my VMWare Workstation.
The VM was created with 2 virtual NIC card interfaces and the OS was installed using RHEL 6.4 64 bit iso image using a customized kick-start configuration script.
I have another Windows 2008 64 bit Server (Box-1) where I have installed VMPlayer 7 (using VMware-player-7.1.0-2496824.exe downloaded from VMWare web site).
I moved the RHEL VM image from my Box-1 (laptop) to my Box-2 (target Server) and started VMPlayer and opened the RHEL image.
Issue: VMPlayer complained stating that the VM image has been created with certain features that are not supported by VMPlayer. It did not give any further details.
Can anyone tell me how to diagnose the issue? What specific features of the VM image created from Workstation would have caused the VM image NOT to work in VMPlayer?
Also are VM Images created with Workstation v8.0.1 eligible to run on VMPlayer (installed with VMware-player-7.1.0-2496824.exe)?
I just wanted to see if anyone else is experiencing the behavior that I am suddenly experiencing.
For some time now I have been using the Import XPMode function in VMware Player and suddenly it stopped working on my laptop that I cart around with me. I will test new applications, etc in an XPmode import, and eventually if that VM gets to run down from testing poorly written software, or I need to start clean, I just delete the VM and perform a new XPMode import. When I got home rather than waste more time trying to get my Iaptop copy working I simply imported XPMode on my home machine and everything worked fine, this was last Friday. I spent most of today attempting to fix my laptop, removing XPMode, Windows Virtual PC, VMware Standalone Converter, and VMware one at a time, restarting and reinstalling each component and still the XPMode import fails with:
"Failed in import "Windows XP Mode""
That's the only message I get. Now I have gone back to my home machine and went to perform a clean import and received the same message. I would think this was just something going on with my laptop but now on my desktop too? These are both running copies for Version 6 (6.0.5 on one and 6.0.4 on the other).
XP Mode itself, the Windows copy is working without problems on these machines. I haven't notice but perhaps there was some update pushed out to Windows 7 just recently that is breaking the import function. I will have to take a look later when I have some time to see if any new updates were installed recently...
Anyone else also experiencing this? Anyone able to resolve the problem?
Thanks in advance and sorry for the long post!
I'm running Windows 10 tech preview on a virtual machine using VMware Player 7.0.
With the latest build (9926) I can't select 2560x1440 as screen resolution, only 2560x1600,2560x1920 and everything below 1920x1200 shows up.
I want to add that with the previous build I had no problems with the screen resolution, this issue came up now that I downloaded the latest version of the beta.
Does anybody has the same problem? Can anybody help me?
Hi every one.
I'm new to this technology.
I got vmware player 6 installed on windows 7 64 bits.
My question : Is it possible to install a C++ software on vmware player without installing a windows version before.
In other word, do I have to install windows 8 (or anything else it is not important here) and after install a C++
can I install a C++ IDE directly in vmware player?
Thank you for your answers.
I have a Logitec 310 USB game controller that works fine with win8.1.
I have XP installed on Player and want to play some old games using the controller. I did some searching here and found a cryptic message about RTFM dated 2004.
I downloaded the Logitec driver for XP and it started the install, XP found all the HID devices and installed all the needed stuff OK, but at the end, the Logitec driver installer declared "no devices found."
Just wondering if there has been a change of heart and some/any controllers may now be supported.
Is it possible to install a game controller? How?
When i execute...

I need help!
I am new with vmware player and ThinPrint. The summary of the problem is: Virtual printing from the vmware client using the printers of the host does not work,
because no virtual printers are displayed at the client. First some information about the system environment:
The vmware player version is 6.0.3 build-1895310, the host OS is Windows 7 professional 32bit SP1, the client OS is Windows XP home SP3 (without network connectivity).
Latest VMWare tools with option 'virtual printing' are installed and the TPAutoConnSvc service is running at the client. A printer device has been added by the vmware setup
'using serial port 1 of the virtual machine', as as shown in the virtual machine settings. Accordingly to the device manager of the client (virtual machina) the COM1 port exists
and is operational. The host PC has a default printer installed, which is also working without problems.
I tried several things to get printing from the client using the printer of the host to work (setup a printer using the ThinPrint print port and the ThinPrint Output Gateway driver manually,
enabled debug log for TPAutoConnect), but could not fix the following issue:
c:\Programme\VMware\VMware Tools>TPAutoConnect.exe -v -q -i vmware -a COM1 -F 30
ThinPrint AutoConnect component, Copyright (c) 1999-2013 Cortado AG, 8.8.774.1
Can't connect to virtual channel (5).
No suitable client protocol found.
No printers to be created in this session were found.
This is the output of the command (as originally found in the registry of the client, with additional option -v for verbose output), which is used by ThinPrint to startup TPAutoConnect.
Accordingly to the debug log the 'virtual channel (5)' corresponds to COM1 and connection through this channel fails:
