    I have a windows 10 host OS where I have installed vmware workstation 12 player. I have an Xubuntu as a guest OS (virtual machine).


    The complication is: the text is too small in guest OS and almost unreadable.


    The steps that I have already taken to rectify the problem are given below:


    1. I have already installed vmware tools (which is confirmed by hovering on Manage -> Reinstall vmware tools).

    2. I have tried to manually set the resolution in the vmware before starting the virtual machine (by manually changing it to 640 by 480 and then to other settings).

    3. In vmware workstation 12 player, i cannot see the stretch the guest OS but I have tried to stretch the guest desktop in the guest OS.


    Note: I am using DELL XPS 15 with 4k UHD.


    Any help in this regard is highly appreciable. If I am unable to explain anything please let me know, I can provide more details.

  • 10/18/13--01:29: Unrecoverable error (svga)
  • Hi folks


    I'm experiencing some problems with my VMs. For testing purposes of my application (Modify images with Pixelshaders) I've set up a Vista, a Win7, and Win8 VM. But as soon as i launch my app, VMware Player crashes with an unrecoverable error (svga). See attached image.


    Unrecoverable error (svga)

    Exception 0xc0000005 (access violation) has occured.


    My host system: Windows 7 x64

    Videocard. Nvidia Quadro FX580

    Driver: latest recommended Nvidia driver (320.92)


    I can disable graphic acceleration in VM settings for solving the issue, but this way I loose all my graphic capabilities inside the VM.

    On other hardware (ATI graphics) everything works fine, so I suppose it's a Nvidia specific issue.


    Any suggestions are appreciated.

    I'm trying to install VMware Player in OpenSUSE Tumbleweed, updated to the latest version, which provides kernel 4.6.


    After running vmplayer, I get a window showing an error: "A compatible version of gcc was not found."


    After clicking OK in that window, I get a new window with another warning: "GNU C Compiler (gcc) version 6.1.1 was not found.".


    However, if I do gcc --version, I get the following, that shows I've got the latest gcc.


    gcc (SUSE Linux) 6.1.1 20160615 [gcc-6-branch revision 237474]

    Copyright (C) 2016 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

    This is free software; see the source for copying conditions.  There is NO



    Even if I search for the gcc directory (given by whereis gcc) the problem doesn't go away.


    How can I install VMware Player, then?

    My ubuntu 14.04 VM isn't seeing the entire disk for some reason. If I go into the "virtual Machine Settings" and go to the disk, here's what it says:



    Current size: 3.9 GB

    System free: 373.2 GB

    Maximum size: 20 GB


    But when I go into ubuntu and look in the system monitor, it says that I have a total of 4.2 GB, used 3.7GB and only have 207.5MB free.


    This clearly isn't right. What's going on? This basically means my VM is unusable for all intents and purposes.


    My host OS is Windows 10.

    Hello. My new computer host machine is Windows 10. I am running VMware workstation Player 12.5.

    I have just copied the folder of a VM Guest machine Windows XP from another computer host Windows 7 to the new computer Windows 10.


    In the host machine Windows 10, internet is working successfully, but the guest machine Windows XP cannot connect with Internet.

    If the guest machine Windows XP is created in host Windows 10, the VM is automatically set up in host machine Network center.

    The VM is connected with internet automatically.


    Because the VM guest Windows XP is copied from another computer host Windows 7, the VM is not in host Windows 10 network center. I think we need to add the VM into host Windows 10 network center manually. But I don't know how to do it. It seems that VMware Player 12.5 doesn't install Network Adapter in Windows 10.


    My question is:

    How to have VM guest Windows XP connect with internet in host Windows 10 ?


    Thanks in advance.

    Suddenly, hard drive is full and the VM is no longer working.  Says ourfile.vmx is not a valid configuration file although it was working fine.  I think the .vmx file must be corrupt and has filled up my hard drive but I have no idea what to do or how to fix it.  I'm using VM player 5.0.2.  Can anyone help me?

    I am just asking if anybody who runs VMplayer can use that feature?


    how to check:


    inside windows VM go to Start > Default Programs > Set default program > Chose "Default Host Application" to open http/https URLs


    then open any application inside VM for example Outlook with any external URL and click on that URL, (or just run this in CMD window: C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Tools>VMwareHostOpen.exe --url


    there should be 2 options:


    1) URL will be opened in default browser on your Host Machine

    2) you will get error like: "Make sure the virtual machine's configuration allows the guest to open host applications"


    please give me your results with guest and host OS you are running, thanks!

  • 11/15/16--09:50: Networking Questions
  • The host OS is Windows 7 HOME edition, 64 bit, and I have VMWare Workstation 12 Player installed running Win XP as the virtual machine.


    I am not having success getting my network printer to connect to the virtual machine. It is a HP 8600. Printer setup on the XP machine asks for an IP address for the printer but (as far as I can tell) there is none.


    I also would like to know if I can get the host OS to detect the contents of the virtual OS, and vice versa. Win 7 HOME apparently does not have network support, I think?

    Hello. I have just downloaded VMware Workstation 12.5.1 Player (the file is VMware-player-12.5.1-4542065.exe). I have installed this file in Windows 10. I have chosen the free version for non-commercial use.  But this file doesn't install any Virtual Switch in Windows 10.


    According to VMware Workstation Player documentation, it creates up to 20 Virtual Switches on a Windows Host machine.

    VMware Workstation Player 12.5.1 should install the virtual switches "VMnet0", "VMnet1" and "VMnet8" in Windows 10 for configuring network Bridged, Host-only and NAT. I run the command "ipconfig" in Windows 10 as below:


    C:\user\MyName> ipconfig

    Its output:

    Ethernet adapter Ethernet 2:

    Media State: Media Disconnected

    Connection-specific DNS Suffix:


    Wireless LAN adapter Local Area Connection *2:

    Media State: Media Disconnected

    Connection-specific DNS Suffix:


    Ethernet adapter Bluetooth Network Connection:

    Media State: Media Disconnected

    Connection-specific DNS Suffix:


    Wireless LAN adapter Wi-Fi:

    Media State: Media Disconnected

    Connection-specific DNS Suffix: domain.actdsltmp


    Tunnel adapter Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface:


    As you see the output above, there is no virtual switch VMnet0, VMnet1 and VMnet8. I am not surethe free version for non-commercial useof VMware Workstation Player 12.5.1 install virtual switches or not.


    My questions are:

    1) Does the downloaded file  VMware-player-12.5.1-4542065.exe  free version for non-commercial use install virtual switches ?

    2) How to have VMnet0, VMnet1 and VMnet8 come up in Windows 10 so that we can configure the network for Guest machines ?


    Thanks in advance.

    If the audio device/s change while a VM is running, the VM will not automatically switch to the default device, nor does it update the list of available audio devices, effectively disabling all audio completely until the next player restart.

    I've found that 3D graphics performance in VMware Workstation Player 12.1.0 is very slow, making games unplayable.


    I have downgraded to VMware Player 6.0.7 & the performance is brilliant.


    Has anyone else experienced this & are VMware aware of it?

  • 11/18/16--13:15: Upgrading from Player 5.02
  • I am in the process of reinstalling my Windows 7 on a second Disc.  I have VMPlayer 5.02  currently running on my other Disc  I could just reinstall 5.02 but was wondering if I should try the latest 12.5 version My VM is for Widows XP and the way I did this last time was to simply copy my existing copy of C:\Program Files\Windows XP mode  before opening the newly installed VMPLayer  Would this be the same for 12.5 or are there any other considerations  And of course are my current Virtual machines created in 5.02 compatable with the latest 12.5

    My vmware player does not show gest machines in the library. My troubleshooting suggests its a permissions error on whereever the library data is stored.


    When I try to open a guest machine  the player does not show the  guest in the inventory pane of the  player. However I can run  vmplayer /path/to/machine.vmx and the machine  will open execute  properly.


    When  I run vmware player as root (or even a regular user) it works   correctly - so it seems clearly tied to my user account. I have tried rm  -rf ~/.vmware and rerunning the player but I  get the same behavior.


    The problem happens with all guest machines - so it does not appear to be related to anything about a machine itself.


    Does anyone know where vmware player stores the inventory data? Nothing in the  ~/.vmware directory seems to be related to this, but the library data must be persisted somewhere. Where is this file?


    I'm running vmware player 3.1.3 build-324285 on Ubuntu Linux  2.6.31-22-generic-pae Ubuntu 9.10.

    Thanks for any help.

  • 11/25/16--05:33: VM window size config
  • Where is the config file for current size of a VM (powered on) window?

    I want to create multiple VMs and have them all at exact same size (1366x768), so i want to duplicate this config file for the other VMs since it's pretty troublesome to resize them manually to 1366x768.

  • 11/25/16--15:20: VM Player Cut-n-paste issue
  • Using VM Player 4.06, Ubuntu 14.04, Windows 7.

    I had to install open-vm-tools (git apt-get install open-vm-tools-dkms ) and patches ( )to enable shared folders.

    Now cut-n-paste does not work between my host (windows) and guest (Ubuntu)

    This cut-n-paste used to work perfectly earlier. What can I do to fix this, this is kinda big deal for me.

    I'm using this processor which is stated to have 4 cores:

    I could however select up to 8 cores (selecting more than 8 cores give a warning). Why is that so?

    Currently using VMware Player 12.1.1-3770994. Host machine is Windows 10.


    When I try to connect a USB device (iPhone) to my Mac VM, the list isn't populated with anything. I checked the VMware USB Arbitration Service, and it's stuck on "Starting." When I tried to manually start it, I received error 1053 "Service did not respond in a timely fashion." I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, repairing the install, and I even tried updating to 12.5, and nothing has resolved this issue. Anyone have any idea what's causing this problem? It's starting to drive me crazy.
