    Anything better than VMWare Workstation?


    I thought it's the best, I tried it the other day and found it not very user friendly. I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to access files that are on my computer in the VM and even the drag/drop file function didn't work as it had a stop sign sign

    Is there a better alternative?

    :)

    KB4517211 causes VMware Workstation Pro 14.1.7 to fail

    "VMware Workstation Pro can't run on Windows" Message - Windows 10 Help Forums

    better solutions to fix rather than uninstalling the update....

    Either reg fix or compatibility administrator tool

    For compatibility administrator tool, only need to install 1st one on list and unselect the rest (only a 7.7Meg install)

    VMWare workstation 11 no internet.


    VMWare Workstation 12 is out now, which fully supports Windows 10. I suggest upgrading to 12.
