    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

    Hey there !


    Im very new to VMware player and setting up networks. I tried several times to setup a bridge for Kali Linux Vm. But it doesnt seems to work :




    As you can see it isnt connected ... I also havent filled anything in the options of wired connections yet, everything is completly empty ( Security/Identy/ipv4/ipv6 are emtpy) :




    I watched some tutorials and read some  threads about that problem. SO i configured KaliLunux Vm like that :




    I also changed some stuff in the NetworkingEditor :




    And atleast heres a picture of my networkcard :




    Does anyone of you guys know why it isnt working and how to solve it ?

    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.

    When I go (under Win 7) to directory:




    then there are a couple of sub-directories. Two of them or of particular interest:


    VMware Player
    VMware Workstation


    Since Vmware renamed a couple of month ago VMware Player into VMware Workstation player the first subdirectory is deprecated.
    So only VMWare Workstation is active.



    In both of the subdirectories mentioned above two files are stored:




    Whats the difference?


    Third question:
    Are all parameters for *.vmx files valid for these two files as well?

    In the past VMWare Player used the central configuration files


    C:\ProgramData\VMware\VMware Player\config.ini


    C:\ProgramData\VMware\VMware Player\settings.ini


    As you know this software was previously renamed to VMware Workstation Player.


    Since then it seems to me that the two central configuration files mentioned above are retrieved from different directory


    C:\ProgramData\VMware\VMware Workstation\


    Is this correct?


    Can I delete the old files?

    I can't get Software Updates to work. I'm using VMware Workstation Player 12. I receive the message: "Disconnected - The connection to the update server timed out. Try again later. If the problem persists, contact VMware Support or your system administrator." (see the image attached). Is it supposed to work this way? Any help is appreciated.

    Hello everyone.


    I am testing a game mod and i'm currently using Vmware workstation to run this game on two systems at the same time. The game has a multiplayer function and thus I am able to play "online" on the same machine, but I am not familiar to how VM works and i'm encountering these specific issues:


    1: I don't know how to configure my xbox controller (one player plays on keyboard and the other on the controller) to only work for VM. Alternatively, making it work only on the host is also fine. If this isn't adressed, my next problem won't be adressed either:


    2: If I click on the game running on the host, the controls automatically stop working on the VM and vice versa, since I highlighted a different program. I don't know if I explained it well, but it's like trying to write on two programs and the same time: You'll only be able to write on a highlighted program at a time. Is there a function that lets me bypass this?


    That's it. I thank anyone who might be able to help, even if you know the slightest about this technology it helps a lot since I've been reading about it the whole morning but I haven't been able to bypass these two issues. I hope I'm in the right thread, the right forums for this. Thank you for your patience.


    In case this is of any relevance: The game is called terraria, it does not come with split-screen multiplayer, that's why i'm using VM for it.

    Is this the appropriate place to submit a bug? This has been happening for quite some time. I just upgraded to 12.5.2 and it's still not fixed. So maybe VMWare doesn't know about it yet?


    I have 3 monitors on my host machine (Win10), and usually run my VM (Win10) across only 2 of the three. It doesn't matter if I shutdown the VM properly, or simply pause it. If I close the VM when it has two monitors, the next time I run it it does not behave in the least. The first thing that happens is the VM comes up in a not-full-screen window, which in itself is not bad, but the resolution is clearly set for two monitors (there's a horizontal scroll bar that allows me to scroll all the way over to a second monitor. If I hit the "full screen" button, for one it doesn't actually open in full screen. There's unused space at the bottom of the physical monitor that looks like has been reserved for the taskbar of my host machine, even though there's no taskbar on that monitor (so the "full screen" mode actually has scroll bars). On top of that, it displays what looks like two screens, cut in half, but all squished onto one monitor. If I hit the "full screen" button again it takes it back to its original state (full 2-monitor resolution, with scroll bars), then hit the "full screen" button a third time, then the window actually opens full screen, with no scroll bars (this issue has been happening for years now, annoying, but workable). What's different this time, is the VM still has 2 virtual monitors squished together onto one physical monitor. If I change VMWare to actually use 2 physical monitors, then I get one normal monitor, and one that looks like it has 2 monitors squished together on one physical monitor.


    I can deal with hitting the "full screen" button three times in order to actually get a full screen window. But this new issue, where 2 virtual monitors are squished together on one physical monitor is super annoying. In order to fix it, I have to un-full screen the VM (since you simply cannot work with two virtual monitors squished together on one physical monitor), then manually set the resolution on what the guest OS considers its one and only monitor (which it considers to be one single monitor with a resolution equivalent to two physical monitors side-by-side) to the actual resolution of my physical monitor. Once I do that, then I can full screen the VM without error, and set the VM to use 2 physical monitors without error. I now have to do this every. single. time I run my VM. I can avoid the problem if I change my VM back to use only one physical monitor before shutting it down. So it seems to be specific to starting up a VM that previously was given two (or possibly more) physical monitors the last time it was running.


    This bug is consistent and happens every time without fail. Is there any hope for a fix anytime soon?

    For some reason, the guest seems to only be able to use 1/4 of the total GPU. (There's also a 2GB VRAM cap, but that isn't as big of a problem). I'm really not sure what's going on here... the guest reports 100% utilization, while the host only shows 30% and the other 5% is probably the host (ubuntu 16.08). Do I have the virtual machine configured wrong, or do I have to edit a config, or what?


    Using: GTX 960, nvidia-smi, rivatuner + MSI afterburner


    (Not sure why it says D3D11, it clearly isn't, but whatever)

    Using VMware Workstation Player 12.1.1 build-3770994  on Linux Mint 18 to make a Windows 7 VM. The issue is that on the VMware Player menu bar, where you usually see items like "File", "VM", and "Help", only "File" appears. However, once I have the "File" dropdown menu open, I can slide my mouse over to the right and the next (unlabeled) menu opens, and then if I slide my  mouse over a little more, the "Help" menu opens. Or I can click on the unlabeled part of the menu bar where the labels for those menus would be, and the dropdown menus appear.


    Not a big thing, pretty much cosmetic since I can get to the unlabeled dropdown menus, but the Player is usually better than this. The menu bar labels and dropdown menus are usually all there, and the problems that I encounter are much more subtle operational problems. I've played around, but I don't see any way to bring the missing menu bar labels back. And I've removed and re-installed this (checked the md5sum after downloading, as well) and have seen the same thing both times.


    Any way to get the full menu bar labeling? Am I the only one seeing this?
