  • 05/15/17--02:32: High cpu usage (100%)
  • Hi, I've a problem with my windows Xp virtual machine.

    My pc is a windows 7 - 64 bit, Fujitsu lifebook A Series with intel core i5-6200U quad-core with 8 GB of ram.

    I used this virtual machine for a lot of time on vmware workstation player 12.5.5 without any problem.


    The virtual machine suddenly became slow, with no apparent reason: one day I just opened vmware and my virtual machine was unusable. Looking at the task manager I saw that the cpu is always at 100% usage.

    The windows updates on my pc are disabled.

    I set my antivirus (AVG) to ignore the vmware folder and the folder where my virtual machine is located.

    The Bios setting for machine virtualization were already OK (in fact I could use the VM previously with no problem)

    My vmware configurations are: - 2GB of ram.

                                                      - One core with automatic Virtualization engine (I try other virtualization engine without success)

                                                      - 40 GB of memory

                                                      - All adapters (like cd, usb and network) aren't connected at power on.

    I've got an old version of vmware (12.1.1.) and also with that version there is the same problem.

    I already tried  to compact the virtual hard drive, but no-success neither with this try.


    I don't know what to do, I search in the web and I didn't find any solution.

    Thanks for any feedback.

    I am using WMware Workstation Player 12. I am trying to configure my lab servers to communicate with each other. One has the DHCP/DNS role installed and needs a static ip. The other will be a client which will receive the IP addresses. I need to cofigure the client with the static IP from the server but cannot get the two guest servers to communicate with each other. They are both on the same subnet. I have tried disabling the firewalls and allowing ICMP. The guest cannot ping each other. They can ping the host,  but the host cannot ping the guests.


    I have tried all variation of the network settings. My questions are; will WMware Workstation Player allow guest-to-guest communication? If so, does anyone have any ideas on the configuration?

    Because I had curiously not internet connection through vmplayer I decided to uninstall it.


    But I can not uninstall it, because vmware-installer says that vmware-player is not an installed product (but i can get the version of vmware player !).


    It looks like a bug.


    BUG vmplayer.png


    And here VMware Workstation says that VMware Player is installed !

    bug vmplayer 2.png

    What should I do ?



    uname -a :

    Linux debian 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.7-ckt25-2 (2016-04-08) x86_64 GNU/Linux


    version installed :



    Lenovo Thinkpad x201


    I solved the internet connection issue :   1) go to "File" -> "Player Preferences"-> "Connection Settings" -> select "No Proxy" -> "Close" -> "Download All Components Now". Enter the root password if asked.
                                                                   2) if necessary : go to Virtual Machine Settings and select NAT.

    I am running Win XP Pro guest on a Win 10 Host.  All host printers (and everything else) works fine on version 12.1.1 build-3770994. After upgrade to 12.5.0 all the virtual printers disappeared.  I have tried everything I can think of including removing and reinstalling the software and generating a new virtual machine, but the printers stay gone. When I restore Vmware from a backup to the 12.1.1 version, it works fine again. Am I locked into using v.12.1.1 forever?

    After installing Hyper-v on a Windows 10 Professional 64bit PC I noticed that VMware Workstation player stopped working, so I removed Hyper-v it as I have several VMs I need to use.

    Is it a documented compatibility issue or was in only a problem related to my PC?

    I would like to enable Windows containers on the same Windows 10 PC: is there any known compatibility issue with VMware Workstation Player?

    By the way, I installed and use VirtualBox on the same PC with no compatibility problem if I use only one hypervisor at the same time.

    Ive recently downloaded and installed VMWare Workstation Pro for a college class of mine. The task was to install 3 guess; two servers running Server 2012, and a normal Windows 8.1 OS machine, with one of the servers being a domain controller. I have all of the machines set on the host only network type. My main issue is that i cannot get my Windows 8 machine to join the domain provided by the server. I try it and it tells me "An Active Directory Domain Controller for this domain cannot be contacted." After this problem appeared, i tried pinging the machines from each other and it just tells me that its a general failure.Ive tried a number of things and now ive run out of ideas. Any help would be appreciated.

    I am trying to remove a VM in VMPlayer 12 but cant because it does not let me select it by giving me an internal error during selection.


    Where is the configuration file so I can remove it editing the file by hand.  I know where the VM files are located, what I need is the Player configuration file location.


    This is in Windows 7 Pro.

  • 02/04/14--02:42: VM crashes with signal 11
  • Hello,


        I am running VMware Player with Linux host (Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64bit with all latest patches applied) and several VMs such as Trusty alpha and Saucy, Windows 7 and XP.

        I happened to receive an unexpected crash today that says:


    VMware Player unrecoverable error: (mks)

    Unexpected signal: 11.

    A log file is available in "/home/vmware/Ubuntu-14.04-alpha/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.


        when I power on the VM.

        Related log file is attached.


        This error happens on multiple (=another) VMs with same error message. Are anyone have any solutions ?

    When I look into the folder


    C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\VMWare\InstallerCache\


    under 64bit Win 7 then its growing over the time to now around 700 GB.


    Is this normal?


    Can I simply delete the content or is it absolutely required for VMware Player to run?

    I have VMWare Workstation Player 12.5.6 installed.  When I go into the Software Updates window and click on Check for Updates, I get the error

    "Disconnected - A certificate error occurred while connecting to the update server. Check your Internet settings or contact your system administrator."



    Now, I'm pretty sure I know what the problem is, but don't know how to solve it.



    The Proxy we have here is a MITM proxy which the company use to scan all HTTP and HTTPS traffic.  To do this, the company's root cert is installed on the PC, and the Proxy will generate a new SSL cert for (almost) all https connections.  The browser is happy to accept this as it's correctly signed with a valid root cert.



    However, the cert is not the original cert, as issued by the web site.  And it appears that the Software Update is either

    - validating the cert is the correct cert, not just a valid cert


    - not using the installed root certs to validate the cert, thus getting a cert that is not correctly signed.



    For most things, the installation of the new root cert fixes it (installation into Windows or Linux, for example).



    So how can I get around this in VMWare Workstation Player?  Can I install a root cert somewhere in the app path?  Or is there an option somewhere I haven't found?



    For now, I have to manually check and download a new version.  It would be nice to have the Player tell me what it's available.



    This also prevents the download and installation of VMWare Tools.

    I read that VMWare Player doesn't support USB3 automatically.


    According to some help papers there is a way to build-in this functionality by installing additional drivers from the host mainboard manufacturer.


    I tried that, but when installing the driver package from INTEL I got a message that my test computer has not the must-have requirements (maybe too old/too slow), so installation was aborted.


    Is there another way to give a Player's VM the USB3 functionality?


    Second question: We also use the normal/full "Workstation Edition" in our server room.


    Does the "Workstation Edition" support USB3 or do we have to add this by installing additional driver software, too?

    Hi everyone,


    I am using VMWare Workstation Player 12 on Windows 10 Home x64 with Windows 7 Home Basic x64 as a VM.


    The issue I am having is that I am running a cell phone firmware flashing program that I am flashing a dead phone with to recover it. The program works perfectly in grabbing all the older drivers for the device, however when it enters the flashing mode it continually disconnects then re-connects the USB interface (this is the correct behaviour).


    I was wondering if there is a way to get the virtual machine to bypass USB detection in the host OS and only have it operate in the guest OS? That way the firmware flash won't fail like it is doing now. Any help is much appreciated.

    Hi there,


    I recently upgraded my PC to an AMD Ryzen 1600.  Now my Windows Server 2008 VM won't start.

    Windows 7 x64 SP1 host.


    VMWare Workstation 12 Player 12.5.6 build-5528349


    Windows 10 x64 Professional Version 1703 Build 15063.296


    When trying to type in either the Edge browser address bar or the Search Windows' textbox accessed from the Start button, input is extremely laggy and continually misses keystrokes and loses focus.


    This is a fresh install of the OS into a VM, i.e. it is not an existing physical machine migrated into a VM.


    VMWare Tools is installed. The setting for 'Enhanced Keyboard' in the VM settings makes no difference.


    Keyboard input everywhere else seems to be OK.

    Hello, I am using vmware player for sap hana express edition, for training purposes.

    I want to ask you if there is a way to close vmware and release all resources of my laptop without shutdown the hana server.

    Because if I shutdown the server when I open again the vmware I must startup again hana db and apps and this is taking more than 30 min.

    So is there any way to do it?


    Thanks in advance
