according to Ubuntus "Disk Usage Analyzer" (baobab) 20,7GB of 76GB are in use at the moment (see attachments) but the VMware directory somehow is around 79 GB.
I already tried the disk utilities "Defragment" and "Compact" but sadly with no success.
Any ideas how to shrink the used disk space of the VM?
VMware Workstation 12 Player V12.1.0 buid-3272444
Ubuntu 16.04 LTS 64-bit with 76 GB disk space
Thanks in advance!
I installed VMware-Player-12.5.5-5234757.x86_64.bundle as per the instruction found here. https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/VMware
When i run the command vmplayer it doesnt do anything and there is no error shown in the terminal. I checked the log file found in /tmp/vmware-userID/vmware-apploader log. You can see it here. Pastebin.com
I have tried the solution to this problem found here but it did not help https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/VMware#vmware_12_process_terminates_immediately_after_start.2C_no_GUI_is_launched
I also tried recompiling all of the modules with this command vmware-modconfig --console --install-all but that didnt help either.
i Have verified that all of the services are running. I am also running the latest release of Arch Linux.
I had built my sister-in-law an XP PC which now had a fan that failed. I had built a newer PC with Windows 7 64 bit on it and gave it to her.
She wanted addresses that were in CreataCard Gold 3 which would not run on Windows 7 64 bit due to it using a 16 bit installer.
I brought the hard drive back and ran DISK2VHD and then ran STARWIND V2V and created a VMDK file.
I brought it up under VMWare on an old PC that doesn't support VT to test getting it bootable. It ran somewhat slow.
I got the addresses she wanted off of it.
I then wanted to move it to my main Core I5 PC running Windows 7 to save it in case she wanted something else off of it later..
That is when it got really super slow. I found turning off VT helped some since it wasn't as slow on the older PC.
I found a discussion about Avast and AVG needing to turn off the VT setting in those products.
It was so slow I never could get into the Avast settings to change it. I ended up just uninstalling it. That helped a little but not much.
I noticed the CPU was running 100% with most of the CPU in Taskmgr. I then found a discussion about 100% CPU.
It said to go into the device manager and expand the Computer and start the driver update to change it from ACPI.
Then select - No not this time. Then select - Install from a list or specific location. Select - Don't search. I will choose the driver to install.
Select - Standard PC. It will have you reboot the image. After the reboot, it installed a bunch of different drivers.
Not sure if this would affect activation. I had a Windows XP Pro Retail I had used for the older PC I had built for her.
I had no issue with activation. It may have been because of the Retail license.
It runs a lot better now. One change at shutdown that is different now. It says the CPU has been disabled by the guest operating system.
Power off or reset the virtual machine. When you x out of that it says it is now safe to turn off your computer.
I then select Player at the top Then - Power. Then Next - Shut Down Guest.
This isn't the original discussion I found but mentions the procedure.
I have a Windows 10 host running a Windows 7 guest on VMware Workstation 12 Player. The guest
I'm trying to figure out how I can route all the audio from the guest VM to the host as if it's the VMware player process on the host simply outputting audio like any other program. Note that I have some limitations that prevent me from considering the use of networked connection means such as VNC or RDP. Any idea how I could do this?
after starting Workstation Player system commit of the host increases about to 20 GB.
and then windows 10 says insufficent storage available.
after stopping Player System commit stays by 18 GB.
I did a physical to virtual of my Linux Ubuntu 17.04 and have come across a couple of stumbling blocks
which I hope you very bright people out there can help problem solve. I'm using workstation 12 player latest.
First off was the Vmware tools wouldn't install properly and gave a message - " systemctl status vmware tools service and journalctl -xe unable to start services vmware-tools.service failed because the control process exited with error code"
I tried to - sudo apt-get install open-vm-tools-desktop -y
Which seems to install but on reboot the desktop window only scales a tiny bit in a 4:3 ratio, and now I also get a error message "poweron script failed"
Kinda new to Vmware, did some googling but info is a bit scant when it come to my situation.. Don't know what to do really?
Please help kind people if you can.
Host: Linux Mint 18.1 MATE 64Bit / Guest: Windows 10 Pro 64Bit
I've been using VMWare Player for many years on Linux hosts with no problems.
I recently updated Linux VMWare Player and now have a problem:
In my Windows 10 Pro 64Bit guest I have bad audio?
When a sound is played in Win 10 virtual machine the sound is heavily distorted?
I do have current VMWare Tools for Windows installed.
This issue happened recently after updating Linux VMWare Player.
Any help in fixing this problem would be appreciated, thank you!
In testing under a Linux VM I've come across a VERY reproduceable problem with using SmartCards (in particular PIV).
Both of these errors state that the USB device suddenly became unavailable and recovery may or may not occur.
Attached is sample code that will compile under Linux w/ GCC if you have the pcsc-lite development libraries.
Affected VMWare hosts:
Affected Linux guests:
Known Affected VMWare Software:
This is not using the Virtual SmartCard layer that passes an emulated CCID device to the OS (which doesn't work in Linux, even with the vendor/product added to PC/SC).
Many PIV vendors' cards were tested...
Compile test tool w/ command like:
gcc -o pcsc_get_data -I /usr/include/PCSC -lpcsclite pcsc_get_data.c
The utility will use the first reader, wait til a card is inserted (or use already-inserted), select the PIV applet, read the PIV Auth cert off of it.
I have a Ubuntu guest installed in Workstation Player 12, and I use it to study Hadoop and Spark applications. Unfortunately, I only allocated 20GB to it initially and I've run out of space. To correct this, I went to "Edit," "Hard Disk," and "Expand," giving it a total of 60GB instead.
However, I need to increase the partition from within Ubuntu and this is where the whole cascade of problems started to occur. After doing a search, it seemed that the best thing to do was to used the Gnome Partition Editor aka "gparted." However, this proved problematic, since the main drive could not be unmounted while it was still in use. Apparently, it would be necessary to boot up with the gpart live boot disk and repartition from there. I used a utility called UNetbootin to put the ISO file on a USB stick, but when booting into the BIOS with F2, there was no option to boot from USB.
All I want to do is add some more disk space to my Ubuntu disk - is there a better way of doing this? Thanks in advance for any replies.
Linux Mint 18.1 Cinamon x64 host running Kernel 4.10.20. Trying to transfer a VirtualBox W10 VM into VMWare Workstation 12 Player. All exported and apparently imported correctly. However on start up in VMWare W10 sticks at "Getting devices ready 50%". The host has 8 virtual cores, one of which is permanently at 100%. The guest is set to use 2 cores.
Any advice appreciated.
With Secure Boot enabled in the host UEFI, how is it that installing vmware workstation on linux as the host, which changes the linux kernel, how is it that the modified linux kernel is still allowed to run? Doesn't Secure Boot mean that the kernel is signed and therefore fixed, with the signature in the UEFI firmware?
i opened ports in my fritzbox router and disabled firewall in win 10 .. ports were open but not in VMware. I dont know how to configure ports for NAT network in VMware player i think it isnt possible I tried to use bridge networking but that didnt work. Any idea how can i open my ports correctly ?
Thanks in advance
I'm trying to move a Ubuntu 16.04 virtual machine to my Windows 10 Pro desktop from my Windows 7 Pro laptop. I've attached the log file I get.
When i start my VMware Player 12.5.5 can't see the top panel Menu Settings Help (i think it should be because i can't see it).
PS. I have Linux Mint Rosa x64
I am unable to connect my iPhone to my Workstation Player (v. 12.5.5) on Linux host (Fedora 25, kernel-4.10.200.fc25.x86_64 and previous versions). My iPod connects properly, but the iPhone seems to have issues.
When I plug in my iPhone a pop-up window asks if I want to connect a USB device to the virtual machine, detaching it from the host. I click "yes". After a few seconds I get a second pop-up window and, whether I click "yes" or "cancel', the system seems to hang for a while, then nothing happens. If I try any action on that USB device, I get a window saying "unknown error".
The information I get with dmesg is the following:

Has anybody had the same issue and fixed it? Any help would be appreciated!
I'm running VMware Workstation Player v12.5 on a Windows 10 Laptop.
I'm trying to get a virtual XP machine working but stumbling on this issue.
I cannot connect a USB storage device to any XP virtual machine I create.
I've tried creating 3 XP machines, 2 of them are XP professional 64 bit and 1 XP professional 32 bit, created in VMware vCenter Converter Standalone Client from physical machines.
Each was created to VM Workstation Payer v10 and each has been updated to the latest VMware tools in the guest.
When I look at the hardware profiles, the USB devices are displayed with the yellow exclamation mark error.
I have tried searching for updated drivers with no joy.
I've also tried setting the player USB profile to USB 1.1, 2.0 and 3.0. For 1.1 and 2.0 the results are the same, for 3.0 again, drivers cannot be found for the USB controller.
I'm not sure what else I can try. I've tired various USB storage devices from USB 2.0 stick to USB 3.0 hard disk.
Yet my USB mouse works OK!
The original machines can connect with USB ok so I'm at a total loss now and have spent HOURS trying to work around this...
I've just tried a Virtual Windows 2000 professional - that too doesn't recognise my USB mass storage device. (Shows in Hardware manager with errors)
Tried Virtual Windows Server 2008 - doesn't recognise USB mass storage device. (Shows in Hardware manager with errors)
Tried Virtual Windows 7 Professional - doesn't recognise USB mass storage device. (Shows in Hardware manager with errors)
Is this likely to be an issue with my own laptop? If so what could it be?
Tomorrow I'm hoping to get access to another laptop to try the same things, until then, I'm stumped!
Update: Access to another laptop with WMware Workstation Player v6.0 running on Windows 7 Professional:
When I run the same Windows XP Virtual Machine as I tried on my Laptop (and after eventually authorising windows) I could read my USB devices. But they also stopped working after a little while.
When connected to the guest and trying to view device hardware, it is so slow loading. If I disconnect the USB device, the hardware profile loads up immediately.
Absolutely baffled now as to what is going on.
Tried a fresh re-install of everything VMware....
Created a fresh VM from the XP machine.
Still no good.
Spent enough time now trying to resolve this and need to get on with it... so I set the USB drive up as a shared folder between Host and Guest, slow but at least I can now transfer files over.

Here is the error message.
I am using Windows 10.
Intel VT is NOT disabled on my computer. I have run the "Intel Process Identification Utility" as recommended and it shows everything as "Yes" (i.e. enabled).
I also ran a "system requirements" utility that showed everything was fine.
I'm trying to run a VMware Conversion of an old laptop as a backup. I've run a VMware conversion and converted it to a vm 9 image file.
When it gets opened in VMware Player everything works except for the keyboard inputs. The only way I can type on the screen is using either the on screen keyboard or connecting in with TeamViewer.
Looking in Device Manager shows that the following error.
Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)
Has anyone come across this before and know if a solution?
I've Just updated my Windows 10 version 1607 to 1703 and now when I work a while with vmware workstation Windows crashed and showed BSoD with this name : DRIVER_STATE_POWER FAILURE
What should I do?
I Also tried Clean install and still The same
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.
