  1. BSOD during VMware workstation player installation consistently


    Hi,I get a consistent BSOD during the installation of VMware Workstation Player. I can replicate it very easily. I have gotten 4 BSOD due to this (installation of VMware Workstation Player) while trying to debug/find the cause myself.

    Attached is the latest/last BSOD DM log collector file. (I have all 4 BSOD DM Log collector files if needed)

    BSOD Error: Driver irql not less or equal. Same BSOD error consistently.
    The BSOD always occurs during/mid-installation. I believe (Might be wrong) at the point where the installer states "Installing Virtual Network Drivers".

    The installer was run from C drive (Desktop) with installation into C drive.

    Things I've Done/Tried:
    1) Windows Updates & Application Updates
    2) Fresh Install of VMware workstation always
    - Remove any VMware files from installation path manually
    - Does not register as installed in control panel, hence unable to uninstall normally. BSOD always occurs during installation
    3) End Task/Exit any non-essential background applications/task

    My System:
    Laptop: Sager NP9150
    Operating System: Windows 10 Pro x64
    Motherboard: Clevo P15xEMx
    Memory: DDR3 16GB
    Graphics Card: NVidia GTX680m & Integrated Intel HD 4000

    Thanks in advance for the assistance

    :)

    Vmware workstation 7 stoped working after upgrade from Win7SP1 to Win10

    Upgrade was perfect for all applications. But VMware workstation 7.1.6 went through the upgrade process but the VMs on the machine did not restart giving memory error. Reinstalled the software, VMs still do not start saying the "Authorization Service not
    started. Tried to install latest VMware Player 12, (VMware claims it runs on Win10), even that did not start. Both VMware 7.1.6 and VMware player 12 during installation gave an apparently non-fatal error message pertaining to "IRQL_NOT_LESS_NOT_EQUAL". Running
    Win10 Pro 64-bit with latest updates. Any suggestion to make VMware 7.1.6 work is welcome - PKM

    VMWare 4.0.2 & Windows 10

    Does the VMWare website offer any insight?

    P.S. The name is now VMWare Workstation Player.
