    Hello Forum,

     

    I'm not sure if I'm in the right spot to ask for some assistance but have a client PC that upgraded to windows 10 and somehow the virtual machine folder became corrupt.

    When starting the VM it boots to an error "A disk read error occured" press cnt-alt-del to restart. The VM is an 8.1 management OS for a hyper v server and I'd really like to get this VM back up and running.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I am running Windows 10-x64 (guest) on Workstation 12 Player (12.1.0 build-3272444). The host is linux. However, every time I click on the Virtual Machine Settings, I get a popup window that say "Windows 10 x64 is not a supported guest operating system for Workstation 9.x virtual machines. Some features of it might not work properly unless its virtual hardware is upgraded." I am not sure why Player is assuming it is 9.x when the version is clearly 12.

    I am wondering if there is some old configuration file that got left behind when I upgraded to 12.

    I install VMware Workstation 12.1.1 Player for Windows 64-bit operating systems on Lenovo intel core i5 under Windows 7.

    I have a copy of Virtual Machine for HP Quality Center with the VirXPSP3.vmx file and environment.

    When I try to open vmx file from Workstation Player :

    1) I got prompt that Virtual machine appear to be in use and option to take ownership

    2) After taking ownership I attempt to play the virtual machine I got a prompt with "Binary Translation is incompatible with long mode on this platform. Long mod will be disabled in the virtual environment and application requiring long mode will not function properly as a result. See http://vmware.com/info?id=152 for more details."

     

    Link is to this page: System requirements to install a 64-bit guest operating system on a 32-bit host (1003945) | VMware KB

     

    Host is definitely 64 so I'm puzzled with that is happening.

     

    3) Next step/prompt is: "This virtual machine might have been moved or copied". I clicked "I copied it" button

    4) Next message:

    VMware Player unrecoverable error: (mks)

    Exception 0xc0000005 (access violation) has occurred.

     

    Log file is attached.

     

    Line 476 in the log file is:

    The following VT-x features are required for VT-x support in VMware Player; however, these features are not available on this host:

    2016-06-07T13:51:34.466-07:00| vmx| I125: hostCpuFeatures = 0x217d

     

    In one of the previous installation i did Enabled Intel Virtual Technology in BIOS following one of the replies from your forum. It did not remove the error.

     

    Just to clarify whenever I do uninstall I follow Troubleshooting steps from your site:

    1) uninstall using Add/Remove Program from Program and Features

    2) run the installer with the /clean switch

     

    I do above steps as an administrator and reboot after each step.

     

    On the top of that I delete the following folders:

     

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\VMware folder

    C:\ProgramData\VMware folder

    C:\Users\Ivana\AppData\Local\VMware folder

    C:\Users\Ivana\AppData\Local\CrashDumps\vmware-vmx.exe.*.dmp files

    C:\Users\Ivana\AppData\Local\Temp\vmware-Ivana folder

    C:\Users\Ivana\AppData\Roaming\VMware folder

     

    And delete the whole folder with the Virtual Machine for HP Quality Center.

     

    Do you know how can I fix unrecoverable error (mks)?

     

    The same installation works fine on HP under Windows 7, i.e. copy of Virtual Machine for HP Quality Center is ok.

     

    Thanks in advance for your help.

  • Hello --  I was running  32bit vista system in player (v12) and it crashed with this pop-up message

     

    At the time, I was accessing the guest vista system via  (microsoft) remote access

     

    Is there a "best way" to figure out what is causing the problem?

     

    thanks

    Hello,

     

    I'm using VMware Player 5.0.2 (build 1031769) on a Windows 7 Professional (64-bit, SP1) workstation to run Windows XP Mode for a legacy USB scanner (HP ScanJet Pro 6200c).

     

    Everything seems to be working fine, but I'd like some feedback on a system warning recorded in the Windows 7 Event Viewer:

     

     

    Event 34, vmx86

    The description for Event ID 34 from source vmx86 cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.

     

    If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.

     

    The following information was included with the event:

     

    VMX86.SYS: begin DriverEntry built @ 02:18:19

     

     

    VMware Player is installed to D:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Player.

     

    I'm also getting "hcmon" warnings, but it is my understanding that this is due to a current lack of support for USB 3.0 on Windows hosts.

     

    Thanks.

    Is it possible to open a 6.5 Workstation Pro image in 12.0 Player? So far we have had no success.

    Hi,

     

    Just installed VMware VMPlayer ver 12.1 and setup a VM for Windows XP.   It all works fine.  I want to be able to start the VM in unity mode when the laptop logs in, and created a batch file thus:

     

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\vmware\VMWare Player\vmplayer.exe" --unity "D:\VirtualBox VMs\VMWare XP\Windows XP Professional.vmx"

     

    As it is, it runs fine, starts everything up in Unity mode.  However, the cmd prompt box it initially opens, does not close.

     

    I have tried adding EXIT to the end and it does nothing.

     

    Tried adding START "" but then the system complains about the switch --unity

     

     

    So now I am at a loss, I just need the cmd prompt to close itself.

     

    Can anyone of your guru's out there advise?

     

    The shutdown commands works brilliantly and the cmd prompt box closes fine.

     

    Any help and advice would be very much welcomed

     

    Thanks

    I have some vms, but they are not connected to network, when i checked the status for device the adapter was unchecked for

    connected& connect at power on is checked, how could i enable ( make a check mark) on "connected"?

    If I have to use a script, please explain me how to do.

    Hello,

     

    I was running a Linux VM under VMWARE WORKSTATION PLAYER 12.1.1 build-3770994 installed over a W7 x64 with no problems, using Bridge connection.

    After update Host to W10, all works fine on host but in workstation player I see no network NICs in Bridge configuration and VM is unable to use network.

    As a workaround I'm using NAT (that seems working), but I need Bridge connections.

     

    Any suggestions?

     

    Thanks in advance,

    Davide

    I got two VM's to start on a Windows Server 2012 Essentials R2 running Workstation 12 player but after about 4 hours of running fine there was a Machine_Check_Exception - hardware problem (would have been Purple Screen of Death on my ESXi Server.). I restarted machine plus one VM but left the second VM off and everything has been fine (as it was before I tried running a second VM).

     

    Is it okay in principle to have two VM's running on same host, provided there's enough RAM for both with some left over for the host (there was)?

     

    Do I have to be careful how I allocated vCPU's? I have 4 cores + hyper threading (8 available logical cores) and had assigned 4vCPUs to each VM? Do I need to make sure I leave at least 1 vCPUs free or something, i.e. should I set vCPU to 2-3 to one or both VM's?

     

    HW: one month old Intel NUC i5 w/vPro, 16MB RAM, 250GB Samsung 850 PRO (OS, apps and VM's) + USB 3 external hard drives for data (not used by VMs)

    I have issue with smart card - it is electronic signature USD - miniLector S Evo by Bit4Id. I have host Ubuntu 16 64bit / VMWare PLayer 12 with Win7 32bit.

     

     

    In Linux there is no problem with the card. I see it - I can use it. Unfortunately some local government agencies doesn't support Linux. So I try to install the card in Win 7. The issue is that the windows doesn't see it. The VM see it as shared devices. When I try to install it says "There is no card recognised by provider" - in normal instalation Win7 see the card.

     

    What I did after that? I try that one, but it doesn't work http://pubs.vmware.com/player-12-linux/index.jsp#com.vmware.player.linux.using.doc/GUID-78E5618F-BD2D-4169-91A4-8FDDCD4C823B.html       

     

    I try to make that one VMware Workstation 12 Player for Linux Documentation Center  with same result

     

    When we run some test we got that result:

    Hell and thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer!

     

    I'm new to VMware and am wondering how VMware player see's physical cards installed into the host machine.  I'd like to do backups from the guest O/S'ed to an 8MM tape back up installed on the host.  The plan is to install a PCI-to-Scsi card in the host and attach an 8MM tape back up to it.  Before I purchase the hardware for this I wanted to verify if the guest O/S'es would be able to access it and back up to it.  Is this possible?  Once again thanks in advance for any assistance anyone could offer

    I can only access one website, Bing, with my set up . If I try to navigate to another it says web page not available, can't find server. I can find all the sites outside Workstation just not inside with xp professional. I've tried to do nat and bridged in the network vm settings but no success. any help much appreciated. thanks.

    For Workstation 12, Windows 10 host, Ubuntu 14.04 guest:  I have a Kingston HyperX Cloud II USB headset/mic combo that I like to use for voice communications via google hangouts.  If I attach the device to a linux guest (tried both ubuntu and centOS), set the headphones to the output device AND the headset mic as the input device, I receive audio stuttering in the VM.  Now the interesting thing is that if I disable the headset mic as the input device the audio stuttering goes away and all is well (except that I can't use the mic of course).

     

    When using the headset in the Windows 10 host OS, I have no such problems and the headset works fine with the mic enabled.

     

    Has anyone else run across this issue, or perhaps had any success with USB headsets in a Linux guest?  Any thoughts on what to try that might resolve the issue?

     

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello,

     

    I installed VMWARE Player 6.0.7 build-2844087 on my Dell Inspiron laptop under a Windows 10 guest. I then installed Ubuntu 14.04 and then CentOS 7. In both cases, when I bootup the Linux guest OSes, the actual display area for the guest is tiny with tiny fonts ... almost impossible to use. I originally thought it was the guest OS, but then when it happened for both Ubuntu and CentOS, I thought maybe it has something to do with VMWARE. In doing some research, I thought that maybe it was related to VMWARE tools, which I tried reinstalling on both. I believe this may have resolved the issue on one of them but when I restart the guest, it "forgets" and reverts back to the tiny display.

     

    It must be something simple I'm doing wrong, can someone help?

     

    Many thanks in advance!

     

    Larry

    Windows 10 host crashes during install.

     

    Fedora 22 runs fine.

    Does anybody know how to enable/disable the Enhanced Keyboard Drivers during silent installation?

     

    Cheers Marcus

    Title pretty much, I know certain viruses can escape the VM.

    I have Avast antivirus installed, but I'm afraid it isn't enough. Any tips or should I just screw off?
