- Dell Inspiron 7573
- Processor: I7-8550U 2Ghz
- GPU: NVIDIA® GeForce® MX130 2GB GDDR5
- Memory: 24GB
- Disk: 512GB SSD
- OS: Ubuntu 18.04
- Windows 10 Pro
- Memory: 20GB allocated
- short term freezing (3 - 5 sec)
- missing keyboard input
- delayed, glitchy mouse
- longer term freezes (1 - 3 min)
- Full freeze up, have to shut down the physical machine with power button
- Overall: annoying, but workable as long as not trying to do too much or stream youtube. I just bought this new machine to have a snappy and fast work environment, so its disappointing
- Extremely slow VM guest performance
- Almost immediately freezes
- Overall: not workable at all

- 08/20/18--05:58: Error after upgrading from WS 12.5.9 to WS 14 Player
Cannot connect the virtual device sata0:1 because no corresponding device is available on the host. The error pops up when I enable the host/guest share and map the drive.
I tried to delete and then add back the the sata drive to VM Player- but it did not help. I have installed VMware Tools.
And the enable/disable share functionality has got disbaled - I can not edit/undo it. (but the share is still enabled)
I am using VM Player 12.5.5 on Win10 Pro Host, and Ubuntu 16.04 Desktop.
When launching VMWARE player 14 I get a meesage that several modules need to be compiled. But then when trying to load I get an error that VMWARE services where unable to start.
Weird. Only "VMnet0" will work as a VIrtual Network. Is this a bug or a feature? Trying to connect to VMnet 2, 3, 4, or even 5, dosen't work.
I am using VMWare Workstation 14 Player with Win2000 as the host system. It has been working fin for a long time until yesterday, when I ran it and am hung up on a screen saying "waiting for connection" with a dashed square above it. I changed nothing; it just started happening. I created a second virtual machine which works fine, but I need the files and programs off the first one, so I need to know either how to fix the problem or access the files. Thanks in advance for your help.
I'm using Workstation Player 14.1.2 to run a Windows 7 guest over Debian linux host.
When in full screen, the top VMware bar appears, and is unusable - clicking on the (non-grayed-out) buttons does nothing; but that doesn't bother me too much, as I need the bar to be completely hidden in full screen mode, so I put
pref.vmplayer.fullscreen.nobar = "TRUE" - which works great, but then, when exiting full screen mode - the top menu bar (the textual menu) is completely grayed-out and unusable. If I omit the above configuration, the menu bar is fully functional when not in fell screen mode.
Any hints on what to do next?
Windows 10 guest produces crackling/stuttering audio on Ubuntu 18.04. However, the crackling goes away when the Gnome Control Center is open to the sounds settings. As soon as I close the sound settings, the crackling comes back. Is this an issue with the virtual sound card using ALSA instead of pulse audio?
I purchased VMUG Advantage and am trying to create/load Win10 in VMWare Workstation. I can confirm I downloaded the full Vmware workstation .exe with the disc images (iso files) from VMUG's onthehub site and have a valid license.
After configuring my new VM for Win10 and attempting to boot, I get this message:
EFI Vmware Virtual SCSI Hard Drive (0.0) ... unsuccessful.
EFI Vmware Virtual SATA CDROM Drive (1.0) ... unsuccessful.
EFI Network ...
It is then followed up with a Boot Manager message; I've tried Enter Setup and tried both Configure boot options and Boot from a File. No success.
Can anyone provide insight or guidance on resolving this? Have I missed a step?

Windows system restore generally recovers.
Windows perpetually tries to install certain updates on shut down.

Set Run in RAM to prevent host lock ups.
2017-12 security monthly quality rollup kb4054518 and 2018-07 security rollup kb43440556 have an issue causing bsod in Win 7 guest in vmware. I don't believe the issue exists in bare metal build, I just rebuilt a Win 7 pc with patches and didn't have any issues. The 2018-07 preview of monthly quality rollup kb4338821 installs correctly and presumably supercedes the failing updates allowing them to clear from the update queue.
Rechecking Windows Update and installing subsequent kb's: OK
Yes. I moved from VMware Player 14 to VMware Pro. I currently installed Windows 10 (32-BIT). The problem is that whenever I start up these VMs, the hard disk gets soo used that the VM lags soo much. Is there anyway to fix it?
I have an NVidia P40 card in an HP G10. P40 setup in shared direct mode. My VM has 8 CPU with 32GB RAM and the vGPU profiles Grid_p40-1b. when we power on the VM it get stuck at 52% I have to kill the Host to get back the VM. I drop the memory to 24gb on the VM and the VM startup. Anyone has seen this problem or have a fix. why can the VM go pass 32gb?
I have an old PC with Windows XP and I copied this into a VM (direct copy of USB hard disk) or converted via VMWareConverter.
When I start the VM, the resolution is at 1280x1024, even in safe mode. When I install the VMWareTools the resolution is only 640x480. If I uninstall the VMWareTools I can increase the resolution again.
On the Windows XP an VMWare server 2 runs. I can't uninstall it, it stops with an error message. A cleanup with the VMWare cleaner did not help.
Also, the resolution in the registry change brought nothing.
e.g. "Attach.RelativeX" or "DefaultSettings.XResolution"
I used VMWare Player 14.
For other Windows XP PCs, the conversion has always worked.
Does anyone have an idea?
Thank you in advance!
Hello everyone, i'm trying to run vmware player on fedora 28 (kernel is 4.17) but it fails to start, the log is Stopping vmware (via systemctl): [ OK ] make: Entering directory '/tmp/modco - Pastebin.com
I tried the all the hints i found on google but they don't work
Host: Windows 10
VM : Winows7 - 64bit
Vm version: 14.0.0 build-6661328
I cant see any adapters when I select bridge mode, but the NAS is working well.
I am sure I have two ethernet adapters.
we have installed SQUID running in CENTOS6.5 in our virualization infra (ESXi 5.5 U3) but apparently for quite sometime the squid services are hangging up that results to unavailability of internet to our users. Here is the VM config
No of VM : 2
vCPU : 8
Mem : 16GB
No of internet users :5K+
This 2 VM is load balanced through F5. With this we would like to know if there would be a best practices for the vm settings or such that we can pattern for our implementation
Thank in advance
It is a while since I installed VMware on a Linux host.
If do so on two dual-booting Linux hosts, can I point VMware from both of them to a separate partition housing virtual machines (*Windows etc)?
1 Guest VM:
I would think this thing should be screaming fast, but instead, it frequently has slow performance.
In VM Player, with 3D Acceleration turned off, this is happening:
With 3D Acceleration ON:
CPU is between 30 - 50% and memory was around 35%....nothing crazy.
What things can I check? Note, I am a windows guy, so please make any instructions on the linux side with that in mind

After installing VMWare's enhanced keyboard driver on Windows 7 the host keyboard is no longer functional.
A workaround suggested in this post does not work because when I click on the Properties key I am getting error "Error opening key - Access is denied".
When I run RegEdit as Administrator I observe same symptoms. Permissions for Properties fails to apply permissions with the same "Access is denied"
Device Manager lists two failed HID devices of USB keyboard type corresponding to my keyboard and mouse (the latter has extra keys).
Device status says "its configuration in the registry is incomplete or damaged"
Rebooting with last known good configuration has not fixed the issue.
I suspect that uninstalling the VMWare's enhanced keyboard driver will not solve the broken registry problem.
How do I get my keyboard working?
I recently installed VMplayer 3.0.0 build-203739 on my Vista machine.
When I start the player I get an initial screen (see attachment) but this screen is too small to see all the contents.
I feel stupid, but is there a way to enlarge this windows?
I previously had Workstation 12.5.9 installed and working fine, although this was only on a 30 day trial.
Some months after the trial expired, I uninstalled this and installed Workstation 14.1.2 Player - This should meet our needs and does not have a trial expiration.
However, when I try to run the same OVA image, I receive an error stating that Intel VT-x is disabled (screenshot attached), even though it isn't.
The configuration of the machine is no different to when WS 12.5.9 was running.
I've already tried doing a clean uninstall/install numerous times but same result.
Can anyone recommend anything I can do to get this VM to run?
I am on Debian 9 and vmware player 14.
I open a shell and execute the following:
The following output is displayed:
> [AppLoader] Use shipped Linux kernel AIO access library.
> An up-to-date "libaio" or "libaio1" package from your system is preferred.
A vmware window is also displayed (see attached document)
Does anyone had this problem before? Can someone suggest me smth to solve the problem?
