    Hi folks

    If you are running Linux Hosts this version of VMWARE workstation (and similar release of vmplayer) seems to have fixed problems of "wobbly mouse" etc -- also when scrolling inside the GUEST in windowed mode --I.E Windowed mode WITHIN the guest the scroll is stable.

    If you are using NVIDIA graphic GPU's - then ensure you have the NATIVE Nvidia graphics installed - not only does that enable 3D acceleration on the VM the HOST works better too. Also if there's a built in sound system via HDMI on the nvidia card it works better too (both on HOST and GUEST).

    On CENTOS 7 install packages nvidia-detect and nvidia-kmod from the elrepo repository. For other Linux Distros use your package manager to download and install -- I wouldn't unless you are a real glutton for punishment try and get source and compile.

    Cheers

    VMWare 4.0.2 & Windows 10

    Does the VMWare website offer any insight?

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

    Thanks for the heads up. There probably aren't many using VMWare Workstation Pro. I bought it for what I was doing at work, but otherwise I don't think I would have spent the $250.

    Not sure why, however, for some reason my Ubuntu VM isn't putting out any sound. It works just fine in an older version of VMWare pro . .this has me perplexed. . .*Huh

    Hi there

    @Lee

    First is the SOUND enabled in the VM configuration (and of course working on the HOST !!!).

    Then if are you using sound via HDMI - if so you might see two possibilities

    Check for them both in sound config

    Here I had to select HDMI2 as the one that worked !!! -- no idea why but it did the trick. I've only ONE HDMI output from the graphics device !!!!. Use whatever sound configuration is available on your VM.
