    How can you activate Virtual XP in Windows 7 Pro?  I have tried using the set of 9 groups of 6 digits each and at the end was informed that the transaction cannot be completed.  That I need to go back to the retailer or developer.  Microsoft was no help regarding this matter.

    I'm trying to help someone convert their static disk to dynamic so it won't use as much space. He's using VMware Workstation 14 Player (free for non-commercial use). Hopefully this question fits in this forum. After some Googling I learned about vmware-vdiskmanager but I can't find it on the computer so it must not be included with this version of VMware. I can add a disk to an already existing VM and make the new disk dynamic. However, there's no option to create a dynamic disk (none I saw) when creating a VM so he has a disk in a VM he made that isn't dynamic but it needs to by dynamic to save space. How can I convert it from static to dynamic without vmware-vdiskmanager? Can vmware-vdiskmanager be downloaded and installed separately?

    Am using vmware workstation player 14 which is installed on CentOS 7.x physical server.

    I just want to know How can I monitor the VMware Workstation Player Services ? What are the parameters/services which I need to check for the VMware Player's application status?

    If these services stopped then our monitoring tools need to be configured accordingly to pick alert.


    Thanks in Advance.

    I'm using workstation player free 14 on ubuntu 16.04.

    Running a VM of windows 8 on a regular disk (not ssd). The disk performance seems really bad and at 100% with 14 seconds latencies.

    When watching iotop it shows 10+ vmware-vm-thread that are doing io. My guess is that it's thrashing the disk. Is this normal behaviour?

    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.

  • 07/21/18--09:25: Waiting for connection
  • 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?

  • 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!

    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:

    • 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


    With 3D Acceleration ON:

    • Extremely slow VM guest performance
    • Almost immediately freezes
    • Overall: not workable at all


    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 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?

    Real beginner with this, so please bear with me a bit.

    Very appreciative for any help.


    a. What is the most appropriate Forum or Community to Post Workstation 12 Player questions to ? Here ?

       Really confused as to where/how to Post, and what to put in the "In A Place" box.


    b. Trying to get started with: VMWare Workstation 12 Player


    I'm trying to set up the virtual machine, and I get these two error messages...


    "Binary translation is incompatible with long mode on this platform.  Long mode will be disabled in this virtual environment and applications requiring long mode will not function properly as a result."


    I don't know what binary translation, or long mode, are, or how to resolve.


    "Intel VT-x might be disabled if it has been disabled in the BIOS/firmware settings or the host has not been power-cycled since changing this setting."


    *What do I do now ?  What might I have done wrong ?


    Not all that computer sharp, frankly, so explicit, step by step instructions on how to install would be most appreciated.


    Might as well also ask, please:  What are some Links to User guides, etc. relative to a beginner getting started with ?

    Any good beginner books I should purchase ?


    Thanks, most appreciative for any help.

    Hello,  I am brand new to the VM world and am struggling to install VMPlayer on an Ubuntu OS.  I have read up a bit on this and understand that there are compatibility issues between the VMWare Linux and Ubuntu and I need to add and modify some files to make it work.  I have downloaded the VMware-Player-12.5.9-7535481.x86_64.bundle and it will install but does not run. It appears to be looking for some specific files and cannot find them.  Here are the terminal results...

    A VM resides on a fast SSD. When the guest runs out of ram it uses swap space which enlarges the vmdk so the vmdk must be manually compacted now and then to recover SSD space. To avoid this compacting, the guest's swap space was put on a separate vmdk that was set as an independent-nonpersistent drive so its size goes back to zero at every shutdown.


    The swap space vmdk was then placed on a separate HDD to reduce SSD wear. But the snapshot (.redo file) is still generated in the VM's directory on the SSD. How do you make this .redo file get generated on a drive and path other than the .vmx's?

    I am trying to load a VM into VMWare player 14. I have exported it using vSphere Web Client 6.5.0 and the "template\export OVF template" menu item. When I try to import the VM into VMWare Player, the import stops with errors. I check the log and find several errors, but I can't make out what actually caused it to fail. One of the early errors is:


    vmx| I125: DictionaryLoad: Cannot open file "c:\users\kfrank\AppData\Roaming\VMware\config.ini": The system cannot find the file specified.


    I have attached the vmware.log file.


    Any ideas where to go from here?

    Using VMPlayer on Linux machine.  Virtual machine is windows OS (7/10)

    Would like have the VM think it has multiple monitors.

    Using TightVNC we are able to map VNC port to the different monitors/screen areas.

    A client could then VNC to the monitor of choice.

    Is this possible?  I could only get it to work if host had multiple monitors.

    I wonder how to achieve config vmplayer with two wm running Ubuntu server  Ubuntu 1 and Ubuntu 2 that when doing ping from ubuntu1 to Ubuntu 2 and vice versa the ping TTL should decrease by 1 as the ping  net is one hop from another. Like this

    PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
    64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=63 time=36 ms


    But I have TTL=128  in response now. So my networks are not configured properly.

    I'm very new with VMware Player, please forgive my ignorance.


    I have a VM running win 98 guest on Win 10 host. I would like to transfer the whole machine to a Lubuntu host, if that is simple. The Win 98 legacy database I'm using was not easy to get going in VMware originally and if I can simply copy the image file, it would be simpler than setting it up again.


    So I copy the VM image folder from the Win 10 machine to the Lubuntu machine but when I try to run it, it says "not enough physical memory" though  it's only asking for 256M so that can't be. Is there a quick way to fix this, or should I try to create an all-new VM and forget copying over the image?

    VMware Player launches and I see the vm in the list. Selecting the vm, then clicking "Power On" causes VMware Player to crash. Confirmed that this happens with multiple different vm's (Linux and Windows). Log file attached for reference. This started to happen after a system update to the latest kernel. Anyone encountering the same issue? Any fix for this?

    When using "aero snap" function in Windows 10 to snap vmware player window to left or right side of the desktop, vmware player window cannot resize correctly to half size of the desktop (see the red rectangle in the screenshot compared with other windows application).


    If vmware player window is minimized and then displayed on the desktop, it will "flicker" several times (actually it is resizing itself), and then displayed the same as in the screenshot. This behavior is very annoying.

    I can't get VMWare Workstation 14 Player to run on my Windows 10 PC - it crashes with [msg.log.error.unrecoverable] VMware Player unrecoverable error: (vthread-8)


    I've decided that VMWare doesn't suit my purposes and want to completely remove it. However, that means I need to remove all virtual machines too (there's only one: Ubuntu). How do I remove the virtual machines without starting Player? (Don't worry about my losing data - it's never been stable enough for me to generate anything worth keeping).


    Thanks in advance,

    Guten Tag,

    ich habe das Problem, dass meine Netzwerkverbindung zu einem anderen Gerät (Verbindung über VNC und auch über TIA 14/15) nach wenigen Sekunden wieder abbricht, egal ob ich über NAT oder Bridge verbinde. Update des Players und reinstallation der Tools wurde schon durchgeführt.

    Habe ein neues ZBook von HP mit Windows 10; Intel Core I7-7700HQ 2,8GHz, 16GB RAM

    Ich benutze den VMware Player 12, habe allerdings auch schon den 14er getestet und keine Besserung festgestellt. Betriebssystem innerhalb der VM ist Windows 7.

    Mit gleicher Software gab es beim vorherigen Notebook (auch ein ZBook) keine Probleme.


    Hat jemand Erfahrung mit dem Problem oder eine Idee woran es liegen könnte?

    I just want to verify if the VMware Workstation Player 14 (NOT PRO) would be able to connect to device on the LAN. For example if this computer was in an office, could it connect to a PLC and a HMI like a PanelView that is on the factory floor so that the HMI screen can be viewed in the VM that is on the computer in the office?


    What if were to use WiFi instead of direct Ethernet connections?


    I only ask because I saw that the VMplayer does not include "Advanced Networking" while the Pro version does. It doesn't say to much about what the advanced networking all includes.


    Thanks for any help!

    My host is Ubuntu GNU/Linux 18.04


    I'm trying to run ArchiCAD-22 in a Windows-10 guest, but I get the message:


    OpenGL has been disabled: The OpenGL version is not supported. Required minimum OpenGL 3.3.


    However, when I start up OpenGL Extensions Viewer, I see that it reports "3.3 (Core Profile) Mesa 17" and I even am able to run the 3.3 tests, which draws an OpenGL test box on the screen.


    Any idea what can be wrong here?


    My GPU is:


    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Curacao XT / Trinidad XT [Radeon R7 370 / R9 270X/370X]


    I did a clean Windows 10 install in VMWare Workstation Player 14.1.3 build-9474260, so I've confirmed that:


    virtualHW.version = "14"


    I have no problems running ArchiCAD-21 or previous versions. 


    Any pointers as to what I can try?

    Problem: The kernel already has this update.

    How can I make the Player run?


    In detail:

    For my openSUSE Leap 15.0 64bit I downloaded VMware-Player-14.1.3-9474260.x86_64.bundle

    After logon as the user who shall run the Player I opened an Xterm.

    su root

    sh VMware-Player-14.1.3-9474260.x86_64.bundle

    Gtk-Message: Failed to load module canberra-gtk-module: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

    But the Installer startet and claimed "Installation was successful." at the end.

    When I then tried to start the Player it did not work:

    "Before you can run VMware, several modules must be compiled and loaded into the running kernel. Kernel Headers 4.12.14-lp150.12.16-default

    were not found. Refer to your distribution's documentation for installation instructions."



    uname -r answers 4.12.14-lp150.12.16-default

    That means the kernel which the Player asks for is installed.

    My PC has an Intel Core i5-3570 processor and 8 GB RAM.

    I'm trying out Player 15, hoping to upgrade to Workstation Pro. But I can't get either to run.


    I have the dreaded "could not open /dev/vmmon". I've followed these instructions several times now:


    VMware Knowledge Base


    and the keys seem to be loaded. But running


    $ sudo /usr/src/linux-headers-`uname -r`/scripts/sign-file sha256 ./MOK.priv ./MOK.der $(modinfo -n vmmon)
    libkmod: ERROR ../libkmod/libkmod.c:586 kmod_search_moddep: could not open moddep file '/lib/modules/4.15.0-34-generic/modules.dep.bin'
    modinfo: ERROR: Module alias vmmon not found.


    So some other suggested:


    $ sudo vmware-modconfig --console --install-all
    Starting VMware services:   Virtual machine monitor                                            failed   Virtual machine communication interface                             done   VM communication interface socket family                            done   Blocking file system                                                done   Virtual ethernet                                                   failed   VMware Authentication Daemon                                        done


    I've attached the output from that last command.


    When I try to run Player (or Workstation) it tells me multiple modules need to be compiled but doing so seems to be of no effect.


    I've tried uninstalling and re-installing. No difference.


    Can anyone instruct me on how to get either Player or Workstation running on a UEFI Ubuntu 18.04 system? Thanks.

    My VM running on Windows 10 has been getting BSOD VIDEO_SCHEDULER_INTERNAL_ERROR every few days,

    On my VMWare Player 14, I have selected NVMe disk and created a Virtual Windows 7 64 Guest in EFI Mode.

    The Microsoft NVMe driver for Windows 7 (Hotfix 2990941 & 3087873) are integrated into Windows 7 ISO.

    Yet  Windows 7 Guest setup fails to progress beyond Starting Windows logo. You remove NVMe disk and put SATA or SCSI and it installs fine.


    Where could be the issue? Is this some sort of bug in MS Driver or could it be some bug in the VMWare NVMe controller?

    Would appreciate further clarity on the same.

    Does anyone know how to get rid of it giving me the message below every time I run VMware Player 15? After I click "Install" and enter my password, in a few seconds it comes up and runs normally. But next time I open it the same message appears. Any help appreciated.

    I have just replaced vmware player 12.5.9 with the 15.0.0 because the previous version was incompatible with ubuntu 18.04

    Unfortunately I have just found that even this version has problems with ubuntu


    The installation has been done correctly, but when I try to open my existing virtual machines the gui is unable to do it

    I tried to open a vm from the shell with the command: vmplayer my_vmmachine_name

    The result is that vmplayer sends the following errors on the shell then it opens the vm.


    When the vm is running I receive the following error saying that the disk is not present



    libgail and atk are properly installed.

    Attached you find the log file where are present other errors.

    In particular it seems that the installer ask for files not present


    Any dsuggestion about how to solve this problem?

    Hi, I've installed a macOS High Sierra on VWare Player 14 and it used to work fine.
    My OS is Windows 10.


    Then my electricity stopped and now when I start the VM it shows the apple's logo (loading) and then it crashes the whole VMWare Player.

    I have some important development setup there and would like to access it.


    Any ideas what I can do are highly appreciated!

    I have attached settings and log files.

    Hey all, so I'm computer systems student, currently learning setting up windows server using vmware..I have faced some problems so hoping that someone could help me.

    Let me explain what I need to do:

    So I have Windows server 2008 virtual machine running on my physical computer, let's say my physical pc ip is: , I have bridged connection with my Virtual windows server and set it ip manually to , and now I have task to create a DHCP server on virtual windows server and create another virtual machine for example with windows 7 , on the same network, let's say it's vmnet0 , the virtual windows server is also on vmnet0 , so I'm not sure if I understand the task correctly but is it possible to do this ? I mean to create a DHCP server on my virtual windows server and then assign ip address to another virtual machine, if so, how to do that ? I have already installed DHCP server on virtual windows server but not sure if I done it correctly so just wanna ask how to do it the right way.
