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

    so I downloaded WhoCrashed and attached analysis of the crash below.

    I have also attached the minidump file.

    What could be the cause and how do i diagnose/resolve it?

    On Fri 9/28/2018 3:59:54 PM your computer crashed or a problem was reported

    crash dump file: C:\WINDOWS\MEMORY.DMP

    This was probably caused by the following module: vm3dmp.sys (vm3dmp+0x5FEA)

    Bugcheck code: 0x119 (0x1, 0x10E130D0, 0x10E130D1, 0xFFFFAA8CC3867000)

    Error: VIDEO_SCHEDULER_INTERNAL_ERROR

    file path: C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\vm3dmp.sys

    product: VMware SVGA 3D

    company: VMware, Inc.

    description: VMware SVGA 3D Miniport

    Bug check description: This indicates that the video scheduler has detected a fatal violation.

    A third party driver was identified as the probable root cause of this system error. It is suggested you look for an update for the following driver: vm3dmp.sys (VMware SVGA 3D Miniport, VMware, Inc.).

    Google query: vm3dmp.sys VMware, Inc. VIDEO_SCHEDULER_INTERNAL_ERROR

     

    The following dump files were found but could not be read. These files may be corrupt:

    Hi,

    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.

     

    Screenshot from 2018-09-29 09-26-12.png

     

    Host OS is Ubuntu 18.04 x64.

    Hi,

    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.

    error.png

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

    error2.png

     

    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?

    Thanks

    Claudio

    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: 192.168.0.100 , I have bridged connection with my Virtual windows server and set it ip manually to 192.168.0.102 , 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.

    On October 15, 2018, I downloaded VmWare Player 15 (VMware-player-15.0.0-10134415.exe), unblocked it, and started a "Run as Administrator" install of that exe.

     

    Everything seemed to start up fine (splash screen, small progress dialog in lower-right of screen), but after a few seconds, everything disappeared.

     

    When I tried to start a fresh install, a warning message displayed that an install was already in progress (despite zero physical/visual evidence) .

     

    Is there any type of log that I can turn on and/or look at that shows whether or not the installation has stalled, yet still shows as running?

     

    My environment:

     

    Microsoft Surface Book 2

    16GB RAM

    1TB SSD

    Intel i7 CPU

     

    WinVer 1803 (OS Build 17134.345)

    Hi,

     

    We are using VM Player 14 on CentOS 7.x, its everyday going to not responding state & CPU usage is very high. "vmplayer" process which consumes more CPU usage. Once we kill the services its come to normal. Until that time we cannot able to open/work on VMs. Attached error screenshot fyr.

    Anyone facing similar issue? or share some light to fix this issue permanently.

     

    Thank in Advance

    - Vinod

    I'm attempting to create a Ubuntu 18.04 guest on a Windows 10 Pro DELL XPS 15 9570 and am running into issues. The physical hardware is a Core i9 CPU, 16Gb RAM and a single 1TB SSD. There is no physical CDRom drive.

     

    1. My first step is to select "Installer disc image file (iso)" and choose the Ubuntu 64bit iso image downloaded from their web site.

    2. Follow the defaults up to specifying the disk capacity. Here I choose 160Gb and a single file.

    3. Power on the VM.

     

    Before hand I've checked the virtualisation is enabled in the BIOS (of course it is, this is a brand new laptop).

     

    While the VM tries to boot, I first receive an error: "PXE-E53: No boot filename received". This is immediately followed by: "PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM" and then simply "Operating System not found".

     

    I've never owned a laptop with only an SSD before so not sure if this is the root of the problem. I have VMWare Player running fine with a Ubuntu 18.04 guest on another machine with a more standard configuration of 1TB SCSI hard drive and CDRom.

     

    Thanks in advance

    When I launch my Windows Server 2016 Standard VM using VMWare Player 15.0.0 build-10134415, it does not automatically "fit to guest", which is my Windows 10 64-bit Microsoft Surface Book 2, which has a display resolution of 3240 x 2160.

     

    I cannot find a menu or setting within VMWare Player 15.0.0 build-10134415 that permits "Autofit guest" or any of the other traditional VMWare "fit to..." settings.

     

    I have changed the VM's local resolution to the highest setting allowed by Windows / Settings / Display Settings / Advanced Settings, which is 2048 x 1536, but that takes up only a fraction of the available display space.

     

    Even setting VMWare Player 15.0.0 build-10134415 to "Full Screen" does not cause the underlying VM to use the full available display space.

     

    Is what I am trying to do even possible with VMWare Player 15.0.0 build-10134415?

     

    My environment:

    Microsoft Surface Book 2

    16GB RAM

    1TB SSD

    Intel i7 CPU

    Windows 10 Pro 64 bit, version 1803, OS Build 17134.345

    Hi There,

     

    I have installed CloudReady Chromium OS on my VMware Workstation 12 player.

    Runs fine but I have not figured out how to change the display size/resolution.

     

    Could use some help on that.

     

    Kind regards

  • 10/22/18--11:31: VMWare Player and VLANs
  • Hi

    I have a problem concerning VLANs and virtualization. The setup is as follows. Our developers are about to get Virtual Maschines with Linux (centos) guests on their desktops. The host machines are Windows 10. Each machine has only one NIC installed and connected to the internal LAN. On this single Lan cable there should be 2 vLans:

    Default VLAN 1 for the windows hosts (configured as default vLan on the switch ports)  

    VLAN id 311 for the VM (different setup for routing/firewall/proxy)

    The Network for the VM must be set to bridged, because doing web development, the developers must be able to access the webservers installed on the VMs via browser. The original plan was to use VMware Workstation Player 15, install the Linux, configure the vLan in the guest and it just works. But no packets left the VM while pinging the default gateway of the vLan 311. To me it looks like something is dropping all vLan packages concerning the vLan 311. The questions are: 

    How to configure our cisco switch port to pass two VLANs traffic?

    Are vLans supported by VMware Workstation Player 15 or Workstation after all?   

    Are they supported in a setup like this?  

    How is it done? Must the be configuration under Windows as well?

     

    Help would very nice

    Greetings Mahdi

    Hi,

     

    after changes in my ubuntu 14.04 computer (mainly related to the gcc compiler - if I understand it correctly), starting VMWare fails.

     

    In the first step after starting, I am asked to perform a Kernel Module Update:

     

    Before you can runVMware, several modules must be compiled and loaded into the running kernel.

    I click on "install", are asked for my (sudo) password and get afterwards

     

    Unable to start services.

    See log file /tmp/vmware-root/vmware-12819.log for details.

     

    This file contains the following information.

     

    How can I resolve this issue?

     

    Thanks in advance!

    Hello

    For Player 14 vmrun is available via VIX installer. After upgrade to 15 this VIX version stopped working.

    From what I checked VIX is now part of Workstation Pro install, I thought it should be also in Player installer but looks like is missing in this Workstation version.

    In compare datasheet of Pro and Player vmrun is listed for both versions.

    How I can install this feature for Workstation Player ?

    Best Regards

    Estimados buenas tardes.

     

    Soy nuevo en esta comunidad. Tengo una duda.

     

    Tengo una PC Virtual que es con una configuración especifica utilizada para bajar un archivo especifico de internet, editarlo y subirlo nuevamente. La pregunta es la siguiente.

     

    Esa PC se encuentra configurada en un Servidor, pero el inconveniente que tengo es el siguiente, cuando tengo un corte de luz, el servidor vuelve a arrancar pero la virtual no arranca a menos que loguee el servidor manualmente. Hay alguna manera de que se inicie la virtual sin tener que loguear el servidor?

     

    Muchas Gracias.

    I have VMware Workstation Pro 14.  I am attempting to load VMware Tools on Ubuntu.  Every time I do this, I go to the menu tabs at the top, click VM>Install VMware Tools and it begins (I assume.  No prompt says so).  From there, I can see "cancel VMware tools installation" in the menu.  It sits there in that state for hours.  I have tried multiple VMs, all Ubuntu based and the same result occurs.  It can be fixed via command line, but it takes FOREVER.  Any idea why it won't just install from the menu as designed?

    Ultimately, i am trying to get a full screen version of Ubuntu and be able to create a shared folder.  I use the VM to perform incident response duties. 

    Thank you in advance for your attention.

Its not a server, client pair and i would like the ubuntu to get on the Internet. I want them to connect so i can do a live acquisition on the windows 7 vm, So any help would be great, thank you

    A few days ago I was working for school on a program which was installed in a VM.

    Other than this program (EPlan V2.7) i had 2 PDF's, and internet opened up.

    I was also working on 2 screens for easier switching.

    (My computer has 8GB RAM and an intel(r) core(tm) i5-7300hq cpu @ 2.50ghz)

     

    Suddenly my laptop gave a blue screen which gave the error "Driver_Corrupted_Expool".

    The laptop was very hot.

    I restarted it, scanned for viruses and looked for updates.

     

    Now i would like to continue working on the program for school but this VM doesn't want to start up anymore.

    It looks like it wants to try to start but then it fails. I only see the initial black screen and then it stops and goes back to the VMWare menu.

    Other VM's work just fine.

     

    Personally I think I was asking to much from my laptop (2 screens, some programs open) and it got too hot which caused the error.

    This could be completely wrong since i don't know that much about computers.

     

    I hope someone can give me a solution.

     

    Thanks in advance!

    Installed VMware Player on debian 9.4. The server has 2 E2670 XEON processors with 64GB RAM and 2 TB system drive. Swap space is 128GB and is on.

    The Graphics driver is NVIDIA 340 and the graphics card is Quattro 2000 series.

    Using the Player for noncommercial use to run a Windows 7 pro version with a Python environment to support open source development of the NanoEngineer-1 application.

     

    File->Open a Virtual Machine allows navigation to the vmx file, which is selected and the "open" button is pressed. The file dialog box disappears and the VM is not opened and not displayed

    in the VMware Player GUI. The "Home" entry in blue continues to be displayed in the GUI.

     

    In order to run the VM one must use a file browser to navigate to the VM file and tell it to run with VMware Player.  The VM runs correctly, BUT it is impossible to edit its properties and the installation of VMTools fails every time. Since the VM is not displayed in the VMware GUI it is impossible to edit the VM's properties.

     

    The directories and file permissions and ownership are 777 and mike respectively.

     

    Thanks in advance for any insight,

    Hello all,

     

    I am working on in a Windows 7 VM trying to change the network location from Public to Home to allow some software the permissions necessary to function. I've scoured the web most of the morning and afternoon to no luck. But best I can tell is that this popped up some months ago after a microsoft update that is not installed on this VM currently. This ends up giving me a triple Fault errors. I have attached the log file below. I have tried copying settings of working previous versions of this VM, microsoft updates, manually setting the network location to Home through regedit running in safe mode with networking and when you open it back up, it instantly crashes instead of waiting. I believe it is something to do with potential corruption of the network locations but am unsure where that would be to update. Any ideas?

     

    Thank you,

    Allen

    I updated my VMWare Workstation Player this morning to 14.1.4, and now when I start any of my VMs, I get a popup window which says:

     

    Could not get snapshot information: Could not find the file.

     

    Module 'Snapshot' power on failed.

     

    Failed to start the virtual machine.

     

    I originally thought it was only affecting one particular VM, and I noticed some .lck files in the same directory as the .vmx for that VM. I tried deleting them and restarting, as recommended here: Lock Files, but I still get the error. It's worth noting: I do not have any snapshots saved for this particular VM, so I'm not sure why it's looking for a snapshot file.

     

    I also tried starting a new VM completely from scratch, and I get the same error on the new VM, so I'm pretty sure it has something to do with the fresh Workstation update and not with any particular VM.

     

    I'm running Ubuntu 16 guests on a Windows 10 host.

     

    Has anyone else experienced this issue?

  • 11/21/18--02:40: WinXP mouse problem
  • Hi,

    I have a problem with VMware Player 14. I installed the VMware Tools and I'm working on a virtual machine of WinXP 64 Professional. My problem is the mouse. After login to the machine, the mouse is stopping to respond or the scaling of the mouse is bad- it only responds on the corners of the screen and does it oppositely. I mean, when I'm on the left right corner, mouse is clicking on the right down corner and so on.

    I tried reinstalling VMware Tools, changing the scaling of the virtual machine, nothing happens. Please, help

    I'm running a Windows 10 VM inside of VMware Workstation Player 15 on an Ubuntu 18.04 LTS laptop with an internal 1920x1080 display and a external 1920x1200 monitor. VMware Tools is installed in the VM.

     

    The Windows VM is supposed to always run in full screen mode on the external monitor with the 1920x1200 resolution. This works in general, but when I suspend the VM, vmplayer will always switch to windowed mode and resizes the window (and with it the VM's screen) to something very small before suspending the VM. As a result, on resume of the VM, all program windows in the VM have resized themselves to fit the small screen resolution, and I have to manually make them large again, which is rather annoying.

     

    I previously ran the same setup with Oracle VirtualBox. It didn't have this issue but I had to abandon this platform for other reasons.

     

    Is there any way to tell vmplayer to stick to fullscreen mode? Running "vmplayer -X <VM name>" does not help, none of the VM settings in the GUI seem to address this, and I also couldn't find any useful setting for the vmx file.

     

    How to prevent this automatic window resize?

  • 11/25/18--19:55: VT-x Error
  • Hi,

     

    I just installed VMware Workstation Player and am trying to set up a Linux VM. When I try to run it, it tells me "This host supports Intel VT-x, but Intel VT-x is disabled," and that I need to enable it to start the VM.

     

    I contacted the manufacturer of my laptop (HP), and they told me I have to have Windows Pro to enable VT-x.

     

    Does that mean I cannot use VMware?

     

    Thanks for your help.

     

    P.S. I'm new and have no idea what "Place" to post this to. Sorry if I made a bad choice.

    I've had significant battle with the errors that come up when Hyper-V is running in Win10-Pro.  The links to "Manage Windows Defender Credential Guard" in the error message do not lead to the solution, it just wastes everyone's time.  We found this answer through pure luck...

     

    Just run cmd as Admin and type

    bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off

    and REBOOT

     

    this will fix

    and if you need hypervisor for something like windows emulator tools in visual studio just re-enable when you need by typing

    bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype auto

    and REBOOT

     

    Credential Guard is enabled by hypervisor, and when you disable hypervisorlaunchtype, it disables it. No there is no way to use VMWARE Workstation 14 with this enabled, because they don't support the use of stubs to access hardware through their VMs yet. Anyway, microsoft virtualization sucks so, disable it and keep using VMWARE as it is the fastest one on the market.

    I am trying to run redhat 6.2 (circa 2000)* as a VMware Player 14.1.5 guest  under Win 10.

     

    Although I can install the OS, i can't get it to actualy run - during boot, it loads the busLogic driver, and then i just get 'interrupt lost' messages.

     

    Redhat 6.2 came with linux kernal 2.2.14-5.0

     

    What is the magic combination of settings I need to get this to run properly?

     

    Annoyingly, I HAVE managed to get it running with VitualBox, emulating a buslogic scsi harddrive.....

    I have been executing VMs under Workstation 12 running on Linux Mint 18.3. All my VMs from Windows 2000 to 10 Enterprise and macOS 10.11 to 10.14 run fine and I can get them into full screen mode.

     

    I have uninstalled 12 and installed 15. All VMs work well but full screen is greyed out. I tried several things but to no avail.

     

    So I installed Workstation 15 in a Windows 10 pro VM and the exact same VMs can now be set into full screen mode running in this Windows VM. This indicates that the VMs with tools installed are O.K.

     

    Why is it that these VMs can enter full screen mode under Workstation 12 running on Mint 18.3 but not the newer 15?

     

    Many thanks,

  • Running ESXi6.0 under VMware workstation player 15.2; Everything seems to be working except for the Function keys, I can't access now to Customize the system or shutdown. Anyone seems this before?.. is this a problem with the Workstation or the ESXi 6.0?.

    I've just installed Player 15 (fresh download from vmware.com) on a new Windows 10 x64 laptop.

    I created a 2012 R2 guest with an ISO freshly downloaded from Microsoft.  VMware tools did not install.  Don't think it auto-mounted the Tools CD.

    I tried Player > Manage > Install VMware tools but it's grayed out.

    I mounted windows.iso from my VMware install directory and ran setup64.exe.  It says it can't verify KB2919355 is installed.  Windows Update says there are no more updates for this ISO image.

     

    How can I install VMware Tools in this scenario!??

    The Chrome browser constantly loses and regains focus every 2-3 seconds .. I have the latest plaer 14 and running high sierra 13.6 with all latest patches...bare bones fresh install. I have installed vmware tools and don't get this problem at present with any other OSX app.

    How can the correct keyboard layout be selected in the player?

    Good morning,

     

    I've been running VM Workstation 14 on a Windows Server 2016 machine via RDP for a Nextcloud vm.  I was prompted that Workstation 15 was available for download and upgrade and proceeded to run the upgrade.  It go to the point where it tried to uninstall Workstation 14 and I lost RDP connection to my server.  I waited for a while but could not re-connect to the server either via RDP or share connects.  I had to force-reboot the server and all was well again, but I was left with a crippled Workstation 14 that will run the Nextcloud VM but the virtual network is corrupt and I cannot connect to the Nextcloud instance.  I've re-tried the Workstation 15 install and it tells me there is a pending update already in the works, so I try to let it run and I lose connection to the server once again.  I've since tried a 'Repair' and a full uninstall on the Workstation 14 with the exact same results.

     

    Just wondering if there was any manual install/uninstall items I could try to either a) Complete the upgrade to Workstation 15 or b) fix the networking in the Workstation 14 install.

     

    Thank you,

    Robert
