    Moved a VM from a WS Player on Win7 machine to a WS Player Win10 machine. Took ownership on initial boot and then the VM goes into a constant restart loop. Gets to Windows is loading files, then restarts. Any ideas? Thanks.

    I have workstation player 12.5.2 build 4638234. I run win xp in it and this works fine. I have several progs in xp that run fine. I am trying to install cyberlink powerproducer and powerdirector inside this machine but get the error 1327 invalid drive z:\. I know the cd drive is recognised as I was able to install the driver for the usb device from another cd ok. I have tried copying the cd to the hard drive and running from there. I still get the same error.

     

    Any ideas please.

     

    Tks Geoff.

    I have VMware. I also have a flash drive that holds up to 128 GB. Is there a way I can keep the VMware file on the flash drive and then bring it to work, plug it in there, then run my entire day from this USB flash drive? Meaning VMware has some way to save the operating system files on this today which would allow me to open it from both my home and my office. Another way to say it is I would like to work a little bit on the Windows 7 64 bit vmware profile at home, save it, then stick the usb flash drive in my pocket.  Then I want to go to work, put in the usb flash drive and continue exactly where i left off at home.  Is this possible? 

     

    I hope this is the correct forum to post this question.

    I'm running a dell 780 desktop with windows 10 64 bit and vmware workstation 12 player. I've installed a fedora 24 64 bit guest machine and I've got a problem with the sound device so...

    the default sound device cannot be opened

    a device id has been used that is out of range for your system

    failed to connect virtual device sound

    The sound device in windows 10 shows up as a High Definition Audio Device and it works fine. I've been trawling google but can't find a solution that works for fedora 24. In the fedora 24 guest the sound device shows up as: Analogue Output: ES1371/Creative Labs CT2518/ES1373 (AudioPCI 64V/128 / CreativeCT4810/CT5803/CT5806 [Sound Blaster PCI]

    In vmware settings the sound card is set to auto-detect with a dot in 'use default host sound card'.

    Can anyone help get the sound working?

    CentOS under Workstation player VM has worked for years until latest Windows 10 update.  Is this a coincidence?

    when I ping 192.168.220.120 I get a 'Destination Host Unreachable' error

    or if I try and access  192.168.220.120 as usual via Chrome under Windows 10 I get 'This site cannot be reached'  

    Any insight gratefully recieved.

     

    David.

    I have converted the phisical Windows 7 Pro on my laptop with "VMWare vCenter Converter Standalon client" to a new Windows 7 virtual machine instance.

    After launching the virtual machine, the VMWare player 12.5 doesn't send "CTRL+ALT+DEL" to start the login acquisition, so I'm not able to use the virtualized machine.

    I've tried to stop the Windows startup with F8 and it works, so I suppose the keyboard is correctly installed and recognized.

    I've tried with difference sequences: CTRL+ALT+">", CTRL+ALT+"INS", CTRL+ALT+"END", with no changes.

     

    Anyone can help me to find a solution?

     

    Thanks

    I have a centos7 VM running under VMWare Player. I have changed the vmx file so that

    tools.syncTime = "FALSE"

    time.synchronize.continue = "FALSE"

    time.synchronize.restore = "FALSE"

    time.synchronize.resume.disk = "FALSE"

    time.synchronize.shrink = "FALSE"

    time.synchronize.tools.startup = "FALSE"

    time.synchronize.tools.enable = "FALSE"

    time.synchronize.resume.host = "FALSE"

    rtc.startTime = "1463290457"

    And it works. The VM date at startup is in May 2016.

     

    Several months later, I have created another VM of centos 7 under VMPlayer 12.5.2. Again changed the above and this time it starts with date set to now.

    Does anyone have any ideas on how to debug this?

    There is nothing in the VMware.log that I can see that is useful. The values in the vmx file are loaded.

    Regards,

    Hi, I'm new to VM.  I've allocated 500MB hard disk - and want to reduce this now to 50 instead - can someone please help me work out how to do this?  I'm happy to uninstall and reinstall everything if that is easy enough to do?

     

    I'm using VM Workstation 12 Player.

  • 06/21/16--03:47: I have issue with smart card
  • Hello,

     

    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

    and i can't even reopen vmplayer without restarting my pc....

    My VMware application was corrupted (multiple times) and I had to force remove the application and all entrants of it. I used the KB article to remove all of the bits and pieces.

     

    Now, I cannot connect to any USB devices with my VMs (any of them) and I get no errors that there is an issue.

     

    Looking at my services.msc section, it shows USB Arbitration Service for VMware is "starting" but never actually starts. I found the log for the service and all it says is the below. I can't seem to get the service to start even after installing/reinstalling/removing/deleting the application or executables associated with the service. I could use some help in figuring out why I can't connect USBs or start this service.

    Hello,

    how must I add VMware to the Windows-Firewall to allow the VM to communicate externally / internally ?

     

    (↓ Better configuration ↓)

    I add port 80 and 443 on the hostsystem (outgoing and incoming) but the VM don't use this ports. Although they also use ports 80 and 443. This is the case with every port.

     

    How do I make the VMs use the ports?

     

    The VM are NAT

     

    ------------------------------------------------

    Hallo,

    Wie füge ich VMware in der Windows-Firewall hinzu, damit die VM nach außen und innen kommunizieren können?

     

    (↓ Bessere Konfiguration ↓)

    Ich habe am Hostsystem Port 80 und 443 (ausgehend und eingehend) hinzugefügt, aber die VM nutzen diese Ports nicht, obwohl sie auch die Ports 80 und 443 verwenden. Das ist bei jedem Port der Fall.

     

    Wie bringe ich die VM dazu, dass sie die Ports nutzen?

     

    Die VM sind ge'NAT'et

    Hello,

    I was using a virtual machine then I suspended it. Now I'm trying to use it again and it keeps showing this error.

    The others virtual machines I have doesn't returns this error.

    Some things I've tried already and didn't work:

    - Rename the vmplayer.exe file;

    - Restart vmware services;

    - Restart windows management instrumentation service;

    - Tried to delete .lck file (couldn't find it inside the folder);

     

    Someone has any other suggestion for me to try?

     

    Thanks

    Almost the same thing as a few years ago happened:

    server 1.0.10 NAT: DNS not working

    xerces8 wrote (Nov 2, 2009 1:40 PM):

     

    I just updated VMWare Server from 1.0.9 to 1.0.10 and now DNS does not work in guest that have set up NAT networking.

     

    Tried Ubuntu 9.04 and 9.10, also Windows XP. All using default (automatic) network settings.

     

    I can ping any numerical address, but DNS resolution does not work.

    If I set manually a DNS server offered by my ISP in the guests, then it works.

     

    Is this some regression with 1.0.10 ? I'm sure the same VM worked before the update.

     

    Regards,

    David

     

    This time I was using VMWare Player 5.0.2 on Windows 8 Pro 64 bit.

    I had a few VMs working fine.

     

    Then I updated to Player 6.0.0, created a new VM for Windows8 and installed Windows 8.1 Preview into it.

     

    There I noticed tha DNS does not work;

    - ping 8.8.8.8 (Google's DNS server) - works

    - nslookup www.najdi.si returns:

    C:\Users\stein>nslookup www.najdi.si
    Server:  UnKnown

    Name:    www.najdi.si.localdomain
    Addresses:  89.143.229.238

    - ping www.najdi.si gives:

    Ping request could not find host www.najdi.si. Please check the name and try again.

     

    - ipconfig /all output:

    A Ubuntu guest VM also had problems with DNS resolution (worked fine before), so I decided to revert back to Player version 5.0.2.

     

    It did not help, so I uninstalled it, cleaned up ( "Manually cleaning a Windows system" at VMware KB: Cleaning up after an incomplete uninstallation on a Windows host ) and then reinstalled Player v5.0.2.

     

    After that a quick test with http://www.sysresccd.org ISO worked, but when I tried the Windows 8.1 VM the problems started again.

     

    I started the SystemRescueCd again and I got:

    % ping rtv.si
    PING rtv.si.localdomain (91.185.213.134) 56(84) bytes of data.
    64 bytes from 91.185.213.134: icmp_seq=1 ttl=128 time=13.1 ms
    64 bytes from 91.185.213.134: icmp_seq=2 ttl=128 time=13.9 ms

    This is slightly better, but still not correct (it should say "PING rtv.si" , not "PING rtv.si.localdomain").

     

    It seems the DNS server of VMWare Player is sending broken replies.

     

    Any idea how to resolve this?

    Hello,first off all Merry Christmas to all and Happy new Year!

     

    In Windows:

     

    When we use drag and drop feature it makes first one copy of desired file into folder VMwareDND that is located in Appdata->Temp folder.After that, vmware copy the file to the final location.

     

    -My question is:

     

    Is it possible to change the location of this folder to another hard drive or force vmware to do direct copy?

     

    Cheers!

    Assume I created a Linux (Mint) guestOS with newest VMware Workstation player under 64bit Win 7 hostOS.

     

    Now I can adjust the display resolution inside the Linux system for the general desktop after Login.

     

    However this screen resolution is NOT applied to the first (after boot) Welcome screen (where the user enters username and password).

     

    Here it is always a small minimum screen resolution.

     

    How can I adjust here (= for WELCOME screen) the display resolution to another value?

    I have installed Workstation Player 12.5 on a Windows 10 machine.  I have not been able to install an operation system.  When I created a new VM and set the CD to an ISO file, the VM tries to boot from the network skipping over the CD/ISO file even if I have the CD as the first boot device in BIOS.  Any suggestions?  I have tried with three separate systems, Win 98 OEM, Win 98 Retail and Win98SE OEM.  All iso images are bookable discs.

    Any ideas?
