I am unable to open an *.ovf file using Workstation 14 Pro / Player, the message i received is: " Failed to open a virtual machine": Failed to read from fileD:\49-disk1.vmdk" This being an OVF file there is no vmdk file.
Any ideas how i can get this to open using v14?
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 got this massage:
VMware Player unrecoverable error: (vcpu-0)
vcpu-0:VERIFY vmcore/vmm/main/cpuid.c:386 bugNr=1036521.
What shoud I do in order to solve it?
Hello to all,
I have two virtual machines on one host. Both virtual machines are started in VMWare Player 14. Is there any way I can assign each NIC to specific VM?
What I want to achieve is the following:
- each virtual machine should be connected to its own network (completely separated networks)
- two VMs share private network
- physical LAN cables from two separate networks are connected to host's NICs
The problem I have is that somehow both VMs are bridging to the same physical NIC on the host. I have tried to use option "replicate physical" but no success.
The set up is the following:
- each VM has defined two network adapters, one is in bridge mode, other is specific VMNet0 (for internal network between two VMs).
The problem is that vmware player doesn't have an option to specifically bridge VM1 to physical NIC1 and VM2 to physical NIC2.
Any advice is highly appreciated.
I have an XP guest running on 1920x1080 (by design), and my host is Windows 10 on 4k.
Resize up is done with a blurry filter, can it be disabled and switched for nearest neighborhood.
I do not want to go 4k on XP, i just need a crispy resize.
So I accidentally trashed my vmdk file. I was able to recover it using a data recovery tool, but now I'm not having any luck with the command --> vmware-vdiskmanager -R Server.vmdk
I keep getting a message file is corrupted and cannot be repaired. The interesting thing though is that the log files are all different sizes and have different content. Does that mean that its repairing the file in small segments? Some logs are 3-100+MB
The log file has:
-lots of entries with Invalid GD or RGD  : 2132141561,123213 vs 123213,343433
-lots of entries with Grain #numbers @morenumbers is pointed to by multiple GTEs
-ends each time with <<< file Throttled >>>
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I saw some posts by continuum but wasn't able to follow exactly. Thanks in advance
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.
I'm trying to use the VMware-Workstation-Player 12 at a Ubuntu-16.04 LTS Client with a multiuser-environment.
Actually I've installed the VMware-Player by using the admin-account and I've configured a WIN-10 as guest.
Now I tried to use this VM with a normal user-profile. The installation of the guest is located at /opt/vmware. It accords necessary rights to every user (read / write).
Now, at the first startup by using a normal user-account, VMware asks for a valid email for registration. At the next step I select the existing installation of the WIN-10-guest at /opt/vmware.
After choosing the *.vmx - file, the virtual machine appears at the library. If I try to start it, nothing happens. There is no problem report, not a flashing of the desktop, nothing.
I hope, I could explain the problem. Is there a possibility to fix it?
I have a win10 machine with VMWare Workstation 14 running on it running a Windows 7 VM. My problem is that it starts fine and runs for a period of a few hours and the abruptly crashes. After it crashes there are no messages (that I know how to access!) and it starts right back up with no issues, only to crash again a few hours later.
What steps can I take to begin to diagnose what is going on?
Appreciate any assistance!
What I'm trying to do is install Windows 10 on Legacy BIOS mode in a virtual machine created in Workstation Player. The host OS is on UEFI. When installing Windows 10 on a virtual machine, I don't get the option to chose between Legacy or UEFI mode.
Is it possible to configure a virtual machine for legacy BIOS if it's running on a host machine on UEFI?

I am using VMware Workstation Player 14 on a windows 7 host. I would like to setup port forwarding so that I can ssh into the linux guest from other machines. Searches on this forum and elsewhere on the internet indicate that - at least in earlier versions - this could be done via the vmnetnat.conf file, but I don't see this file anywhere in my installation. I have also seen references to a "Virtual Network Editor", but I don't see this installed either. I see no relevant options under the Virtual Machines Settings. I am currently using the free version for evaluation.
So ... does Workstation Player 14 support port forwarding, and if so how do you set it up?
Linux Mint is the main OS on my laptop and up till now I have used VMWare Player as a hypervisor
to run Windows 10 as a VM. Now I have had to reinstall Linux and assumed I could use VMWare as before.
Where to begin with the problems ? At the beginning, I suppose.
First, although I tried to download Player, I ended up directed to downloading Workstation and got this file :
Later I did manage manage to download this :
Now both look like their job is to install a VMWare product.
The problems start when you actually try to run these jobs.
First, they appear as a normal text file with code that looks like C ( or some similar language ).
Second, there is a green bar near the top of the screen, presumably showing the extent to which the installation has progressed.
The problem is that this bar fills up microscopically slowly.
Thirdly, at the bottom right of the window it says something like : Line 347648 col 144.
This presumably is supposed to show exactly what part of the code is actually being executed at the time.
Sometimes a given Line/col combination will remain visible for minutes.
I kicked off the Workstation job at approx 8pm.
By 1am the bar was only about a third full so I left it running while I went to bed.
When I woke up and reactivated the laptop the job had finished.
However the only VMWare files anywhere on the system are those installation jobs.
Any chance at all that I could actually get these installations to run successfully ?
I just upgraded laptops and installed the latest version of player, 14. When I moved my VM over and tried to use it the keys 0,P, semicolon and / are messed up. They are mapped to the - + * \ keys instead.
Any idea what could be causing this?
It could be the new laptop, as it doesn't have a dedicated number pad, but that doesn't seem correct.
I am not an IT guy but have some experience, however this one I don't know.
I am thinking to try the enhanced keyboard driver.
Or should I just switch to version 12?
I tried installing Version 12 and its the same issue. So it has to be a keyboard interface issue with the laptop.
I updated the bios and issue resolved.
same as the title
I previously had problems downloading VMWare Player itself and somebody on this forum gave me the Linux Terminal commands to do that.
My problem now is actually getting my VM ( Windows 10 ) to connect to the internet.
My understanding is that Network Adapter settings have to be set correctly, specifically that 'Bridged' and 'Connected' must be ticked.
But when I tick them I get a window telling me there is an error and to look in vmware.log.
The first error message there ( near the very top says ) :
DictionaryLoad: Cannot open file "/usr/lib/vmware/settings": No such file or directory.
I can send the entire vmware.log file if you like.
I am running Fedora 27 Workstation 64 bit (fully up to date) as my host. This all works fine and has the network operating with a fixed IP address, for example 192.68.A.B
I have installed VMware 14 (latest version as of 20 April). The install went smoothly with no issues. I can open VMware and run it.
As my Guest I installed Windows 98SE (by way of an experiment) This all went ok and the guest additions have been installed. Everything seems to function but I can not access the local network.
My local network is set so each computer has a fixed IP 192.168.A.xxx, (subnet 255.255.55.0) The router acts as the DNS. All this seems to work fine. I have two Linux machines and 1 Windows 7 machine, all hard wired to the LAN and a Laptop which just picks up an IP when it is connected via wireless.
I want o add the Windows 98Se machine to the network with a fixed IP address. So under Windows 98SE networking TCP/IP and its assorted Network card I set the IP address of 192.168.A.C guest Sub net 255.255.255.0 put in the Gateway address 192.168.A.A and DNS address (gateway address) give the host name and workgroup name (workgroup name same as other windows machines workgroup name)
When Windows 98SE was installed as the guest the VM network was set as Bridged.
When I have windows 98SE running and click Network Neighbor hood I get the Entire Network icon only. Click on the Entire Network icon and I either get “can not browse the network” or “specific computer did not receive your request”.
In windows if I I issue the command ipconfig
0Ethernet adapter IP 0.0.0.0
1Ethernet adapter IP 192.168.A.C
Do not want to try and connect to the internet with windows 98SE. If I go to one of the other machines on the network I can ping 192.168.A.B but I can not map the Windows 98SE drive on any of the machines in the network and neither does the Windows 98SE machine show up in any of the network neighbor hoods, The drive on the windows 98 machine is shared along with a specific folder.
HOST MACHINE LINUX Fedora 27
looking at the network setup I see network adapters for;
VMNET1 and VMNET8 only. Both are connected. I do not see VMNET0 which I understand is for Bridging.
I see vmware-netcfg in usr/lib/vmware/bin but I can not open the file to edit it as suggested in some forums on the web. The to get VMNET0 added to the list of network adapters. I have tried using X and Wayland.
So far this long winded explanation can any one tell me the following;
1. How to get the computers to show up in the guest’s Network Neighbor hood?
2. How to be able to get to map the guest on the other computers in the network at require this. I know how the syntax to map a drive but at present the guest is not showing up on the computer I want o map it drive to. (but as I indicated above I can ping it). I have tried using the Windows 98SE assigned IP address and the computer name etc.
3. How to get vmware-netcfg to open so VMNET0 can be added and any other changes made
4 Alternatively how to add VMNET0 to the adapters.
I have not tried NAT as I am not sure how to set this up with a fixed IP address on the local network 192.168.A.xxx and again make sure the computers show up in the Network neighbor hood on the Windows 98SE machine ans the other Windows computers on the network.
YesI know Windows 98SE is old but I do have a specific reason for getting this networking to work
Can any one assist please.
I'm using Workstation 14 and to my amazement have succeeded in converting my Physical machine to Virtual. However I've a major problem because whn I pwer on this Virtual M/C, the mouse pointer is frozen the virtual screen so that it is impossible to log on end install Tools - please see attached screenshot for offending screen. Control/Alt releases pointer from the Virtual screen but whenever I return to Virtual - frozen again.
I am fairly new to VMWare and would be very grateful for any help forthcoming - willing to supply Teamviewer Creds if helpful. email firstname.lastname@example.org

I have transfered an old virtual machine to my new computer, and have gotten an error attached in the screencap below. I have followed all instructions to reset it given in this forum but am still getting the message.
I have installed VMware® Workstation 14 Player on Windows 10 Pro.
Created Virtual Machine with Windows_7_Pro_64 OS. Instillation was successful.
But after restarting the Virtual Machine the screen completely black.
Refer the attached image.
1. Disable/Enable "Accelerated 3D Graphics" ----> Issue still there, black screen.
2. Checked the VMlog, got the below message
vmx| I125: FILE: FileCreateDirectoryRetry: Non-retriable error encountered (C:\ProgramData\VMware): Cannot create a file when that file already exists (183)
