    Hi All

    Host - Windows 7   8GB Ram

    Guest  - Windows Server 2008    4 GB Ram

    Host is an Asus notebook (N-series) with Windows 8.1. Two-finger gestures are enabled (ASUS "Smart Gestures").

     

    Guest OSes, on latest VMware Player are: Windows 10 Preview, and Linux Mint 17.

    In both guest OSes I couldn't get two-finger scroll working so far.

     

    The ASUS touchpad in system devices, on Host OS, is just described as "ASUS Touchpad", duh.

     

    I also tried the "Two-Finger Scroll" application on Host two-finger-scroll - Two finger gestures for Synaptics TouchPads on Windows - Google Project Hosting

    but it gives an error: interface not registered.

    Hi guys,

     

    I'm running a Linux Mint guest on Win7 x32 using VMWare Player 6.0.5. It's basically going well, but I'm unable to install Tools. I open a terminal in the directory of the extracted files, then run the command under SUDO, but the command is not found. I'm attaching a shot of the command line and the target directory.

     

    I re-extracted the Tools package, which is why the folder has " (2) appended to it, but that made no difference. Any help would be appreciated.

    HI:

     

    I've got a Win 2012 R2 Essentials server running under ESXi 5.5. I'd like to experiment with disaster recovery by running VMWare Player, or Workstation, or whatever on a 64 bit Win7 Pro and copying the VM files from the server to the Workstation. Then hopefully as a test, the server could be shut down and restarted on the Win7 workstation. Of course the workstation will have to have enough resources to handle it's os, plus vmware plus the server os, and performance might suffer.

     

    This seems like it should work. In the distant past I once copied a virtual machine between an ESXi 3.5 and 4.0 machine as a test and it worked.

     

    Do you guys have any recommendations, or comments concerning VMWare Player or Workstation for this exercise?

     

    Thanks in advance.

    Cla.

    when configuring the latest VMWare tools, I receive the following error:

     

    "The vmxnet driver is no longer supported on kernels 3.3 and greater. Please  upgrade to a newer virtual NIC. (e.g., vmxnet3 or e1000e)"

     

    I have followed instructions on a few different posts to try to fix this, and none have worked.

     

    I have tried running the vmware tools configuration script with --clobber-kernel-modules=vmxnet - that didn't help.

    I tried changing ethernet0.virtualDev = "vmxnet" to "vmxnet3" in the .vmx file - that didn't help either.

     

    Running Ubuntu 14.04 on VMWare Player 6.0.6 build-2700073 on Windows 7. The VM image in question is Ubuntu 14.04 on Linux kernel 1.13.0-43.

     

    This is for bridged mode (which I need) - running in NAT mode works fine.

    Hello,


    I want to test the linux kernel's mpt2sas driver. It is a driver for LSI Logic SCSI SAS-2 controller. I do not have the HW, and hence want to use VMPlayer to test it.

     


    I see that VMware releases drivers for those controllers and hence this is a hardware that VMware can emulate:

     

    https://my.vmware.com/web/vmware/details?downloadGroup=DT-ESXI5X-LSI-MPT2SAS-151006001VMW&productId=285

     


    I installed VMplayer, and created a VM, but it did not have the

    controller I wanted. I noticed that while creating the VM, if I change

    the OS that I will be running on the VM, the VMplayer automatically

    chooses a different SCSI controller (depending on what the gues OS has

    drivers for, I believe). So after some experiments, the best I could

    get (by selecting Windows Server 2012) is:

    (from lspci output):

     


    03:00.0 Serial Attached SCSI controller: LSI Logic / Symbios Logic SAS1068 PCI-X Fusion-MPT SAS (rev 01)

     



    However, what I want is a SAS-2 controller, something like:

     

    03:00.0 Serial Attached SCSI controller: LSI Logic / Symbios Logic SAS2008 PCI-Express Fusion-MPT SAS-2 (rev 03)

     

    Can you please let me know if I can emulate the SAS-2 controller using VMplayer?

     

    Thanks,

    Hi there,

     

    I'm running Windows 7 x86 Professional and VMware Player 3.0.0. Windows 7 is set to 150% larger fonts (DPI scaling).

     

    If I start VMware Player with this DPI setting the guest VM is scaled aswell. If I set Windows 7 NOT to use DPI scaling only for VMware Player about 25% of the guest's screen is unreachable (lower-right). (See this screenshot: http://pix.sonhult.se/vmware.jpg)

     

    The guest is running Ubuntu 9.10 x86.

     

    Have anyone else been experimenting with DPI scaling and VMware Player? Any ideas?

     

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi,

    I am using vmware player 7.1.0 in windows 7. I installed ubuntu in it, with internet NAT setting it's working fine when I created. But once in a blue it stop the ethernet connection when starting my VM, from then ethernet connections are missing. I got this bug twice.

    I checked with another os in the same vm they are working fine.

     

    Please help me how to get ethernet connections back.

    Hi all,

     

    VMWare newbie here. I'm migrating from VirtualBox to VMWare player and I can say this virtual system is really more efficient. However I'm working on a project were I need to use a ESC/POS printer.

    Is a generic USB thermal printer, nothing fancy, but works fine on Ubuntu 14.04 (host 64bit). The problem is when I try to use it on the guest machine, another Ubuntu 14.04 (32bit) whit the latest guest tools.

    I'm aware of thinprint, I know it create a serial port to connect to the host printer, and my pos printer is present on cups on port tpvmgp://POS58:2. I've tried to install directly on the guest using the drivers of the vendors but since the printer is not identified as an USB the cups settings are wrong.

    When I try to connect to the guest the printer I get the message:

    The specified device is claimed by another driver (usblp) on the host operating system. The device might be in use. To continue, the device will first be disconnected from its current driver.

     

    When I try to print the document is processed and putted on "held". If I release it, the document will back to "held" instantaneously.

    Any clue?


    Thanks.

    Hello,

     

    I've just updated my kernel to 3.10.0-997-generic. After that VMWare Player doesn't start anymore.

    I've tried to run patches and different solutions I found in google, but it didn't worked yet.

     

    This is the log of my last attempt.

     

    Thanks in advance

    I recently installed VMWare Player on a Windows 2012 Server virtual machine at work to run a Cloudera Linux VM distribution, but every time I start the VM through VMWare it just stops. No error information and no other popup either. I'm confused because I've looked for some log files in the ProgramData directory under VMWare, however I don't see anything related to a LOG file. Has anybody else seen this behavior or know where the log files are? I'm using VMware Player v7.1.0 build-2496824 and trying to run the Cloudera VM from this download site:

    Dear all,

     

    I have been struggling with this for days now.

     

    Specs which might be of interest: 64-bit machine with host Windows 7.

     

    All I want to do is get Lubuntu up and running (Light-weight Ubuntu is the idea).  I first tried 32-bit versions of VM Player.

     

    Installing VMware Tools has been OK with Ubuntu 15.04 and 14.04: screen resizing, copy-paste between host <-> guest fine.  I have tried over and again to get shared folders - it simply does not work.  I have done a lot of googling... and followed a lot of what people have said. 

     

    Latest thing which leaves me flabbergasted is that I downloaded the latest version of VM Player: "64-bit for Windows".  Long story short: VMware Tools does not install, and the tar.gz file is nowhere to be found: Player --> Manage --> Install VMware tools results in *precisely nothing happening at all*.  Locating to the CD-ROM drive shows that it is ominously called "Lubuntu 14.0..." (not "VMware Tools...") and the vmware installation tar.gz is NOWHERE TO BE FOUND.

     

    My installation protocol involves running software updater, and then apt-get build-essential.  As I say, I have succeeded with the 32-bit VM Players in getting VMware Tools to work... except for the essential shared folders thing.

     

    Latest thinking: maybe I should get a much older version of VM Player.  Maybe the latest versions are just not fit for purpose. 

     

    I regard myself as quite computery... for years I've harboured this idea of migrating over to Linux.  Every few years I make another attempt.  But the barriers to quite preposterous for someone working on their own.  On an old machine I have Lubuntu running fine.  But a VM on my main machine?  Gaaah.  I despair.

    I have been using VMWare Player for a while now and really enjoy it.  I have it installed on a couple PCs that are connected to a domain network.  Each host machine is Windows 7 as well as each guest VM on it.  I have them all configured with NAT and that works great....well it did up until this morning.  Yesterday all was good and I could connect to other servers on the netowrk as well as get out to the internet from the guest machines.  Today that is not the case.  No internet/network connectivity.   Funny thing is that all 3 seperate VMs I have set up on 3 different host PCs have the same issue. All worked fine yesterday.  I have tried disabling/enabling the virtual network adapters, VMnet1 and VMnet8, without any change.  I do have netowrk connectivity on all 3 host PCs so really cant understand why all 3 VMs are having this issue.  Any thoughts?  Any suggestions on a fix?  Thanks.

  • 05/20/15--10:28: Bluetooth headset
  • I'm trying to use Bluetooth headset (LG HBM-210) on the Vmware Player guest.  Both guest and host are running Windows 8.1 x64.

    The Bluetooth headset  is paired and working as indicated by the Device Manager and Bluetooth Settings in both guest and host.

    The headset is working perfectly in the host, but I cannot see the Bluetooth headset from the Control Panel>Sound of the guest.

    How do I make the headset connect to the guest.

    Two screen shots are attached.

    Thanks

    Installed Ubuntu 14.04 Guest and updated and all good.

    Followed instructions on this page and almost all good

    http://theholmesoffice.com/how-to-share-folders-between-windows-and-ubuntu-using-vmware-player/

     

    Ran this command and it shows the drives and folders that I defined as Shared-Folders

    vmware-hgfsclient

     

    Ran this and it put shortcuts on the desktop

    ln -s /mnt/hgfs/shared-directory ~/Desktop/Name-of-the-folder  {edit} Yes, I used the real Shared Folder names

     

    If I double click on the shortcut OR try to copy a file to it from Ubuntu, I get

    This link cannot be used because its target “/mnt/hgfs/shared-directory” doesn't exist.

     

    Where am I going wrong?

    And, how do I make it work?

     

    Also /mnt/hgfs is empty even with Ctrl-H

     

    Also edited the fstab file as per...

    VMware Workstation 10 Documentation Center

    .host:/ /mnt/hgfs vmhgfs defaults 0 0

     

    Rebooted Ubuntu and got an error "Error mounting hgfs - S=skip, M=manual fix."

     

    I skipped.

    No matter which button I push, it ignores it and starts over in a loop. I am trying to create a VM of Win 7 from an MDT iso image. I have done this dozens of times until this week, now this pop up window prevents me from doing so.

    I have tried several different user accts. I have tried it locally on the same box. I have even removed the last 2 months worth of patches and updates from the system, nothing seems to work.

    I downloaded the trial version of VMWare Workstation 11.  When I do the install it tries to uninstall VMWare Player 7.  The uninstall fails with the cryptic error message 'MSI Fail.'

     

    I've found various articles about this around the web and even tried a few 'solutions' to no avail.  Is there a sure fire way to uninstall the Player so I can try the Workstation?
