  1. Extend partition in vmware workstation


    I have a C: drive (vmdk file) of around 100 GB.
    I used the vmware tools to add another 100 GB.
    It then says that I must then start the VM (Windows 10) and use OS tools to expand the existing 100 GB C: drive.
    So I started the VM and ran the disk management tool.
    You can see the 99.45 GB C: drive, and the 100 GB unallocated space.

    I don't know how to merge that 100 GB of unallocated space into the C: drive.
    So I right-clicked on the C: drive and chose "extend volume" and I get this:

    There's no space available to extend the C: drive.

    VMWare workstation 11 no internet.


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

    Extend partition in vmware workstation

    VMware Workstation 15 hangs and vmware-vmx is unkillable.

    I have installed VMware Workstation 15.0.2 on a Windows 10 Enterprise 18348.19h1 host and am encountering a weird issue. When I start a VM, it doesn't boot but gets stuck on a black window. If I try to force reset it or anything like that, the
    UI for power controls is disabled and if I try to manually kill vmware-vmx.exe, it just won't die. I've tried with Process Hacker and with Task Manager, to no avail. The only way to kill vmware-vmx.exe is to restart my host. The host is a Dell Inspiron 3650
    with an Intel Core i3 6100, 8GBs of DDR3 RAM, a WD Blue 1TB HD and Intel HD Graphics 530. I have also downgraded to VMware Workstation 15.0.1 which also didn't fix the issue. The guest is Ubuntu 18.04, however no matter what OS i'm running in the guest, this
    happens regardless.
