    I'm currently using the basic version of VMware player (not the pro version)

    I create a new virtual machine. VMware player automatically detects my Windows 7 bit installation disc

    in my attached CD/DVD drive.

    in the next screen, i select my operating system version and fill in my windows license key

    then there is a progress bar with the title "creating disc" which takes about 10 minutes to complete


    after installation, the virtual machine launches.

    It says (white on black background)


    Network boot from Intel E1000

    PXE-E53: no boot filename recived


    PXE-M0F Existing Intel PXE Rom.

    Operating system not found.


    on the bottom of the virtual machine window it says "easy install is installing Windows 7 64 bit",

    however my CD/DVD drive is not spinning and there is no progress leaving this alone for 30 minutes.



    I then rebooted the Virtual Machine and went into the bios to update the boot order

    with the CDrom 1st, then the hard drive and then the network.

    I still get the same errors.


    I also tried the same process with my Windows Xp installation disc, same issues


    Any advice would be appreciated

      I'm running an AMD-64 X2 based system with 6GB RAM.  Host OS is Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.  Using VMware Player 3.0.1.

    Guest OS is Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit.  Was originally built on an Intel based system, and complained when I switched it to an AMD system, but the image seems to run fine while it's active.


      The problem I'm having is when I leave VMware Player running and somebody performs a Switch User from Windows to switch to another user profile on the same host machine.  The player seems to run OK in the background, but then when I switch back to the original user and attempt to resume working with the virtual machine, the Player seems to be locked up with only a black screen where the guest OS should be visible.


      The only resolution is to use Player to force Power Off the guest OS.  I can then usually wait a bit, start Player, and re-boot the guest OS.


      The issue seems to be related to Windows User Switching on the Host OS while running the guest OS.


      Any thoughts or ideas?

El portátil tiene WEBCam y en el sistema anfitrión funciona, pero en el virtual no hay manera. ¿Qué puedo estar haciendo mal? No sé por donde tirar.

    Gracias por leerme. Un saludo.

  • 05/24/15--02:44: VMware Tools required
  • I've got VMware Player installed/running, 100%, under W7 Pro with a W10 guest. Now I want to access shared folders from the host but folder sharing option is disabled? The advice there is I require VMware Tools.


    How do I do that, there is another reference to the CD drive but I do not have a disc for whatever? Can I download a file to install this Tools?

    The more I search the more lost I become .


    Any suggestions most welcome.

    Hi Team,


    My environment is basically Windows 8 host and Guest OS is RHEL 7 64 bit.

    I use a particular recording S/W (installed on Windows host OS) to record activities made on the guest OS... This is because my recording S/W can only be installed on Windows.


    As per my observation, the recording S/W is perfectly capturing all the mouse clicks made on the guest (Linux OS). There is no issues with it.

    However, if I type anything on Linux terminal using keyboard it is not recorded or identified by the recording S/W. This limitation is not due to the recording S/W but seriously something to do with VMWare functionality.


    Can someone please help me understand how can I get to record my keystrokes recorded as well along with mouse clicks (which is already getting captured) ?

    I had vmplayer 6.x in a widows 8.1 host and running ubuntu 14.04 guest.  It was installed and working fine.  I was able to select multiple monitors and everything was peachy.  Then windows applied some update and vmplayer would crash on startup.  So I upgraded it to 7.1.  Now it starts, but refuses to allow me to select multi monitor configuration.  The "cycle multiple monitors" button is grayed out and crossed out.  When I click on it I get a windows message dialog that says that vmware tools must be installed and running.




    But the tools are installed.  I installed them a number of times, with and without uninstalling them prior to installation.  The tools that are being installed are 9.9.2-2496486.  Updating them doesn't bring down anything newer either.  Has anybody run into this?  This is very frustrating.

    The error is a VMX signal 11 error when the VM starts and we login to it.

    On boot and startup everything working fine till the VM desktop start to work, then the whole system is crashed with the error message shown above.


    I have attached the log file, it shown a panic at the end of the log.


    Please let me know how can I fix this issue without loose the existing VM data.

    I am having trouble accessing the internet on Windows XP using VMware. Host is Windows 7 pro (internet in host works fine).

    I have a bridged connection. The Linux Kali iceweasle works fine (bridged connection) and I can ping the XP IP and host IP from Linux.

    I have disabled the firewall on XP and changed IP to static.I am using 3.0 usb Linksys adapter.  Is there something I am missing?

    I'm using vmware player. I made a VM with debian (Lenny) I need to access to clearcase views on my host which is under windows XP.

    I created some shared folder on the letters of my clearcase views (V: and Z:). They appears in my debian's VM under /mnt/hgfs/V and /mnt/hgfs/Z but they are empty and I have a error message saying that the content of folder can't be shown.

    If I create shared folder on others HD or network mapped on local drive everything is alright. What am I doing wrong ?

    I have a Linux guest OS running in VMware Player.  When the guest OS starts, it tries to PXE-boot from the VMware DHCP server.  The guest OS never receives a response and times out with the message No DHCP or proxyDHCP offers were received.  This leads me to believe that the VMware DHCP service is not working.


    On the Host Windows 7 machine, I see that the WMware DHCP Service service has a Startup Type of Automatic.  However, that service is not running.  When I manually start it, Windows shows a dialog box indicating that the service is starting, but then it quits after a few seconds and Windows displays a dialog that says The VMWare DHCP Service service on Local Computer started and then stopped.  Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs.  What other service or program needs to be running?  VMware Player is running.  The VMware NAT Service is running.  What am I missing?



    • VMware Player 6.0.3
    • Host OS is Windows 7 Enterprise


    Thanks for any help that you can provide,

  • 05/31/15--05:53: Internal error
  • '...Internal error...' when i run ANDROID 4.4 with vmware on my Linux.

    I read that on the Windows you can edit the 'servisec.msc', but where can I find it on Linux??

    I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 in VMWare Player. The OS is Windows which I just reinstalled. Problem is, now the Ubuntu VM has no connection to the internet. In the VM settings, under network adapter, the setting was NAT. If I changed it to Bridged, it wouldn't work either. Under Bridged mode, if I check "Replace physical network connection state", that still doesn't work. If I click "Configure Adapters" under Bridged mode, it doesn't allow me to select any host network adapter.

    I read online that a tool called vmnetcfg.exe might help, but the old methods for getting the file (extract from Vmware installation file) doesn't work for me.

    Your help is appreciated!

    VMware Player crashes when I run the same game on both the host and the guest, at the same time (it's an older game with fairly low system requirements).

    The crash occurs every time, the moment I try to launch the game on the host while it's already running on the guest (or vice versa).


    Here's the error message that appears when it crashes:


    VMware Player unrecoverable error: (svga)


    Panic: MKSNullOpsDefineContext3d


    A log file is available in "C:\VMWare Machines\XP\vmware.log". 


    You can request support. 


    To collect data to submit to VMware technical support, run "vm-support".


    We will respond on the basis of your support entitlement.

    Any ideas to solve the Problem?


    Thanks in advance Jürgen.

    Since building my new Haswell 7x64 system on 6/26, I've found several warnings like this one in my Event Viewer log, and I've determined they coincide exactly with the times I ran VMs for Windows 8.1 and 7:



    Log Name:      System

    Source:        Microsoft-Windows-WHEA-Logger

    Date:          7/18/2013 1:31:03 PM

    Event ID:      19

    Task Category: None

    Level:         Warning


    User:          LOCAL SERVICE

    Computer:      ---


    A corrected hardware error has occurred.


    Reported by component: Processor Core

    Error Source: Corrected Machine Check

    Error Type: Internal parity error

    Processor ID: 2



    The computer has been in heavy use 16 hours a day since I built it on 6/26. However, these warnings have been generated only during the times I was running VMs for Windows 8.1 and 7, and those times have been infrequent and of short duration, about a half dozen runs lasting five minutes or less each. This is documented conclusively by the VMWare logfiles, for the warning times are sandwiched between the VM start and stop times that appear in the logs. There were two such warnings when I discovered the issue on 7/14. While I can't consistently repro it, I managed to get two new warnings out of several attempts within the first few minutes of starting the VMs. I have no idea what aspect of using the VMs triggers it. I run the VMs in windows and never mess with the Unity mode. They are vanilla installs, new copies of VMs I built on my i5 750 system and archived for easy restoration, and basically I've just been verifying they work.


    My system is as follows, and I am not now overclocking, nor have I ever overclocked anything:


    i5 4670 and Hyper 212 Evo

    Asus Gryphon Z87, BIOS 1007 and now 1206

    Crucial Ballistix Sport 8 GB 1.35v DDR3-1600 DIMMs x 2, 16 GB total

    Intel 4600 graphics -> monitor

    Nvidia GT430 -> TV

    Seasonic X650 PSU

    Samsung 830 SSD boot drive, two 2 TB WD Green drives, all TrueCrypted. The VMs are on the SSD.

    Windows 7 x64 w/ SP1, fully patched, installed 6/26

    VMWare Player 5.0.2 build-1031769


    I've observed Processor ID values of 0, 2, 4, and 6, which I don't understand as the CPU is quad-core with no hyperthreading.


    The system is stable on Prime95, Aida64, and Intel Linpack, plus MemTest86+ 5.0 RC1. The stress tests do not provoke the warning, nor do they cause excessively high temps. CPU-intensive multitasking that uses all four cores such as transcoding video with Handbrake while doing network file copies or downloading from the Internet while watching video or browsing the web does not cause the warnings. The only thing that causes the warnings is running a VM in VMWare Player, and it tends to happen within the first few minutes, when CPU usage is nil.


    I've had no BSODs or abnormal behavior of any kind; this new system has been great. That said, these warnings are still troubling. From googling, I've learned that overclockers commonly observe WHEA-Logger warnings when stressing the system under extreme overclocking, and they say the solution is usually more vCore. However, I'm not overclocking, and I don't think the 4670 is capable of it anyway. Besides, the warnings occur when my system is basically idle and only when running a VM in VMWare Player. They don't occur at any other times.


    Has anyone heard of a problem like this with VMWare Player? Are there any Haswell users who don't observe this problem with VMWare Player?

    VMware Player 7.1.0 build-2496824 on Windows 8.1. Trying out Windows 10 Technical Preview, but after some release of W10 (don't recall, wasn't before) VMware Player start crash. Over a day or so running.

    vcpu-0| I120: [msg.log.error.unrecoverable] VMware Player unrecoverable error: (vcpu-0)

    vcpu-0| I120+ NOT_REACHED d:/build/ob/bora-2496824/bora/devices/ahci/ahci_user.c:1530

    On same box wo any problems running via same Player SLES 11 and Windows XP.

    Nothing I can read out from log.

    Any ideas? Oh, not so important subject as W10 is on the way and just trying to take a look, but ... need to be sorted out anyway. =)

    More thanks, Alar.

  • 06/04/15--13:56: Windows XP Virtual Machine
  • I have a fully updated version of Windows XP running on one machine in my network using VMWare Player 6.03 Build 1895310.  I have a player installed on another machine in my network.  Is it possible to transfer the XP operating system from the first machine to the second?

    Recently moved all my VMs from Host Win7-64bit to Win8-64bit.

    Fresh install of Player v 5.0.2 build-1031769

    Computer is Acer Aspire M Intel i5 @ 1.8Ghz

    Graphics is Intel HD 4000


    When any of the various VMs are started from the Powered Off state, the player window will open and a big black screen will appear where the guest display should be shown. The guest OS does indeed boot, right up to the login screen although with no display visible. If I try to click on the close button in the upper right corner, I get a dialog box that says "The Virtual Machine is Busy". My only option is to end the vmplayer.exe task using task manager. Once I do that, the VM shows state as Powered On in the Library. If I Play it the 2nd time, the VM will resume operating correctly with the proper display at the immediate point where I expected it to be when I ended the vmplayer.exe task earlier.

    Presence or absence of Tools in Guest does not affect the problem.


    All 3 of my VMs have the exact same behavior. Guest operating Systems are: WinXP-SP3-32bit, Win7-64bit built from the VMware Converter, and Server 2008 from the MS eval ISO.


    Any ideas? Once the play/end task/play sequence is performed the VM works correctly. Until it is shutdown or hibernated. A VM restart does not exhibit this symptom. The problem is reproducible with all VMs every time.


    Provided vmx for the XP VM and a few logs.

    Thanks in advance. I'm so close to having this work it's even more frustrating than if it didn't work at all.
