Preferred Solution: VMware installing VMware Tools

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I don't need help, I just wanted to post my solution. 
 
I recently setup the latest version of Vmware player on Ubuntu 13.04 and found myself unable to download the tools for it. error try again later or something along those lines. I searched about online for answers but google only presented 1 relevant topic and it didn't have a solution. Anyways I've discovered how to get around this, it's quite obvious really, I feel dumb for taking so long to figure it out. Lauch VMware player as root, then the tools will download successfully. Hopefully this will save someone a world of heart-ache.

Hi,

Virtual machine OS is Windows XP Pro. Vmware version is 6.
Real shared folder is on another PC with XP Pro.
PROBLEM DEFINITION - EXAMPLE:
I create a New Folder from virtual machines Windows explorer in a real shared folder on another PC. Then wish to rename it to all lowercase like new folder.
It DOESNT WORK!

But when I rename New Folder to a different name like New Folder1 and then rename to new folder (all lowercase), IT WORKS!

This problem is important because I create case sensitive scripts and must save on a file server.

Have you got any useful SOLUTION for this problem?

Thanks in advance.

Hello!

I've a broadband link of MTNL with D-Link DSL 502T modem, and a m/c with Windows XP as primary OS and over it running VMWare server ver 1. I''ve loaded Ubuntu 10 server over VMWare and made it as the DNS / Web Server, I've got domain name registered against a static IP.

Now the problem I'm facing is that whenever I try to open the web-page of my web-server, I receive Modem Configuration page instead of web page I loaded on the server, although my Apache 2 server is running fine.

Can some one help me tell how to configure so that it directly fetches the web pages loaded in the web server instead of modem configuration page.

Thanks and regards

Hi all

To install W8 developer edition (current version) as a VM with vmware workstation you have to download / upgrade to version 8. Version 7.1X and earlier won't work. Vmware player (current version) gives same problem as vmware workstation 7.1x.

When you install choose W7 as the OS (there isn't a W8 option yet not surprisingly) and select I will install the OS later.

Then select the DVD device in the vm serttings as a virtual ISO (you don't need to burn a physical DVD) and boot from the device.

Then it will install more or less as W7.

Ignore any prompt for a product key if it appears. I wasn't asked for one but some people seem to get a request for a product key when attempting to install W8 as a virtual machine.

You can download a free trial version for 30 days from the vmware site. ( it may be that eventually version 7.1x will work or the next upgrade of W8 will work so unless you want to upgrade to version 8 of vmware workstation I'd start with downloading the trial).

Then it installs OK

I don't have enough privileges yet to upload screenshot but it installs fine.

I've also posted a suggestion on how to remove / disable the metro gui for those that want a more "classical" Windows look - you can see the post in the W7 Forum until I can get approval to post in the relevant section on this Forum on customising W8

Hi:

I recently installed Zorin and YLMF on my Vmware player(two separate installs). The problem I am having is that I am unable to install Vmware Tools on either the YLMF nor the Zorin. Before you ask I installed both to see which one I like best and I'm still undecided mostly because I can't get either one configured correctly.

I have searched the net and found various videos...the problem is that the video is mainly about how to use the software once you install it.

I've also found written instructions about unzipping the install.pl file(can't remember the actual name) file to the desktop and double clicking the file to install it and I've done that with no success at all.

Any help would be appreciated.

I haven't tried to install that particular VM but there is a general problem with vmware tools and vmware 8.0 and W8.

Sorry if this is the wrong board to ask this, but I wasn't quite sure where to put it.
Is it possible to use VMWare to install an OS that you can boot up on when you do an "actual" reboot on the computer instead of using VMWare to start it up?

A:Installing An OS using VMWARE (not as a virtual machine)

If you want to be able to boot directly in the OS it has to be installed. Create a second partition for the OS you want to use, install the OS to that partition and create a dual-boot (or use a boot manager like Lilo or Grub if the two OS's don't use the same boot loader). Make some research before you install since installing another OS on another partition of the same hard drive will overwrite the boot sectors of the previous OS.

What operating systems are you talking about ?

Hi,

My laptop is a HP 8470p Elitebook, Windows 7 32bit, 4GB ram, Windows Enterprise.

I recently installed VMWare workstation and all was well for a day or 2. Unfortunately I was had to force powering off (holding down power button) because my laptop was not responding whatsoever and ever since then I am facing BSOD no matter what I try.

There seems to be 3 different messages i get during the BSOD:

1. IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
2. MEMORY_MANAGEMENT
3. The driver is mismanaging system PTEs

I have tried the following:

- Before installing VMWare Workstation i enabled virtualization in BIOS. I have disabled this.
- I've tried uninstalling VMWare workstation, i recieve an error ("MSI '' error") and am unable to uninstall.
- Removing RAM modules independently.
- Selective Startup

Out of the above, the only one that made a difference was selective startup. I disabled all startup items and restarted. It loaded the Windows boot animation and then went to a black screen with just the mouse cursor.

Since then it will no longer let me boot into safe mode, it just goes straight into a BSOD with the "mismanaging system PTEs" error.

Could someone please help, this is driving me nuts!

I should add that I'm not 100% sure it it VMWare Workstation that caused this, but that was the last thing i did before the BSODs.

Thanks in advance.

Hi.

I've had my computer for about four years with an Asus motherboard, and I recently (like two days ago) had it changed to a Digilite motherboard. I'm also a regular user of VMware or VirtualBox, whichever is feeling fancy to me.

About six months ago, my Seagate hard disk started clicking regularly at about 10 seconds interval, which quickly came down to 1-2 second interval, causing the hard drive to click furiously. Due to this, my Win8 would get stuck and won't even give a BSOD. Same thing would happen at restart. Automatic Repair didn't help, but chkdsk would find some corrupted sectors and fix the issue. On the next restart, after running smoothly for 5 minutes, the clicking and stucking would start again. I finally narrowed down the problem to VMware and removed it and ran chkdsk again. This seemed to solve the problem.

After getting my new motherboard, I thought the results might be different, so I installed VMware and ran it for a long time. There was no clicking of HDD until the next startup. As soon as I logged in, desktop became slow and stucky, and finally I heard the horrific sound of that clicking again. (Now whenever I hear ANYthing click ANYwhere, I freeze for a second.) I knew what the problem was and applied the same solution I applied months ago.

Hi there

As previously specified you can't install using the vmware wizard -- or at least using the product key supplied by MS -- it's invalid -- use the number given by Vrosa in this thread.

however if you create the VM manually remember to set the Boot from BIOS the ist time and set the vm to boot from the virtual (or real ISO if you are using a physical DVD)

This will allow you to change to boot order of devices for the VM at boot.

(Change it back again afterwards or you'ii get the install screen again and again).

I have win 7 home premium 64 bit. I want to use vmware to run win 98. Is it a good idea? is it fast enough to run old games ? my computer has 8 gig of RAM and nvidia 560Ti 1 gig video ram. 3.4 ghz cpu.

I dual booted with win xp at one time but xp is not much different from win 7. Some older games only run well in win 98.
 

A:vmware ?

My advice is simply give it a go. It may not work, but you can't find that out without trying.
I haven't used VMware myself; I have used VirtualBox (which is free) for messing around with Linux.

In terms of performance, I'd actually be more worried about giving 98 more power than it can play with! Even a virtualized processor on your box would run faster than the typical hardware processor 12 years ago. Certainly be careful how much memory you allocate: there's the temptation to give it 4 gigs and watch it WHIZ, but the old OS simply won't know what to do with it. Stick to something more reasonable (not more than 512 MB, virtualBox recommends 64).
Since your objective is to run old games, you don't have to worry about modern programs growing to expect gigs and gigs of memory.

Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version 1.0.0.4
OS Version: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro, 64 bit
Processor: AMD Ryzen 3 1300X Quad-Core Processor, AMD64 Family 23 Model 1 Stepping 1
Processor Count: 4
RAM: 16335 Mb

Antivirus: Avast Antivirus, Enabled and Updated

When I try to install VMWare Workstation I get an error message that VMWare requires AMD-V be enabled and it is not. The error says to check in BIOS to be sure AMD-V is enabled. However I can't find any such critter any where on my system. Nor is it obviously on the MSI mobo install disc. Do I need to re-install the mobo or do I find AMD-V somewhere else?
 

A:VMware

In the Bios select Advanced (F7) > OC > Cpu features > set SVM mode to Enabled > Save and Exit (F10)

Hi guys this is my first post here, but from now on I'll be often contributing with my posts here. I promise =)
I have few questions about vmware workstation, im fairly new at using it. So if there are some people here who use it and can help it'd be great.

1: What is the easiest and simplest way to copy files between guest and host computer? (Please give some small tutorial too)

2: If I set guest memory for example to 1gb and I have 4gb total on host. Will my host always be using only 3 when guest is
running even if it doesnt use whole 1gb? Means I will temporary loose this 1gb always when running guest? Or does it work another way?

3: Vmware icon running on my task bar even if virtual machine doesnt run. Can I disable this icon? Or does it have any special function?

4: My network connections shows new unidentified network (most likely this belongs to vmware). It probably has different IP.

4a:Anything special you would recommend me to do about networking with virtual machine?

5: Do I have to install firewall, antispyware soft, and antivirus on virtualpc even if they are already installed on host?
Its likely that answer will be yes, but what if I dont use virtualpc to browse at all, is it necessary in that case also?

6: Do I have to treat it like real PC and do things like defrag, spyware scan, registry fix, tweaks etc ?

7: Anything I should know as new vmware user what you would recommend me to do ?

My greatest appreciation goes to every helpful po... Read more

VMware Workstation 10 has hit the bricks. Have yet to test it, hopefully in the next couple of days (just got a copy today.

A:VMWare 10

Loaded Windows 8.1 without any problems. The VMware Tools also loaded without any problems. The network allowed access to all shared drives on the network without any problems. There appears to be an increase in speed from 9 to 10. Thus far it is an improvement over 9. Still will not allow you to run OS X without a great deal of tweaking.

Q: VMware

Someone told me about this software and was wondering what people thought of it? Is it easy to work with? Is the VMware server the one to d/l with all types of of windows o/s and Linux o/s?
 

A:VMware

VMWARE has two free options, server and the VMWARE player. There are 3rd party utilities to build VMWARE virtual configurations for the VMWARE player around.

Note that Microsoft Virtual PC is also free to download, and it comes with all the stuff to use it out of the box.

I've found that VMWARE usually is a better choice for non-Windows operating environments, and MS-VPC works better for Windows emulation. I have both running here, and I use VMWARE for Linux and VPC for various versions of Windows and MS-DOS.

Q: Vmware

I have a 2003 Supermicor motherboard...installed a sata pci card and plugged in a 500 gb sata drive internally.
the bootup sees the card
and drive
but the bios..bootable device does not see it
therefore vm ware does not see the drive either
how do i get the machine to see the sata drive to do the install to (is the hard drive too big..e.g. over 140 gb)

Any suggestions..

Hi there,

VMware dose not support DirectX applications. I belive this is why you are having the error.
