  1. Can't open VMware Workstation Pro 15


    Hi there,

    I downloaded VMware workstation pro a few days ago & I am not able to open it. When I try to, windows basically tells me that VMware Workstation Pro couldn't be run under windows and that I should look for updates. After a bit of research if found out that this allegedly is because of a new windows-update, but I couldn't find any solutions.


    So...does anyone know what this is all about and what I'm supposed to do?


    Yours truly,

    Sebastian

    Hi.

    I am having an issue installing Windows 10 Pro x64 in VMware Workstation Player 15. Attached are screen shots of the errors I get. My operating system is Windows 7 Pro. I've tried several ways of doing so, the final being 8135-install-windows-10-virtual-machine-vmware-player I am at a loss as what to try next. Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks.

    KB4517211 causes VMware Workstation Pro 14.1.7 to fail

    I'm having the same problem.

    Just in case there is something we have in common:

    I am running VMware Workstation 14 player

    My CPU is an AMD 3700

    I've confirmed that hyper-v is disabled

    virtualization is still showing as enabled.

    Oracle VM VirtualBox still works.

    I need VMware Workstation 14 because 15 does not work with GNS3 yet.

    Can't open VMware Workstation Pro 15

    Update 1903 refuses to install, reason VMWare Workstation Pro 10

    Hi Igor,

    I was maybe not clear: the 1903 update cannot be done.

    At "Status: installing -25%" I get a message that VMWare Workstation Pro is outdated.

    If I try to continue the Windows update, it always stops on the VMWare message. It shows 2 main links. One of the links leads to the site of VMWare and invites to download VMWare Player 14 (which does not support Windows 2000). The other one tells me that
    the concerned "app" has to be updated or uninstalled.

    My aim: continue de Windows Pro update 1903 without updating or uninstalling VMWare Workstation Pro 10.

    Kind regards

    Dan
