Solidbrass Nov 2, 8: Fusion Pro 8 has made all of us beta testers. It boggles the mind that 8. That the VMWare Tools installer has been broken for OS X clients for three straight releases of 8 due to a trivial scripting error underlines the lack of unit testing during the period before release, and implies that there is almost no quality control enforcement prior to releasing to production.
Network errors can occur in the remote virtual machine if the network settings in the guest operating system require the original network hardware configuration. Change the network settings in the guest operating system in the remote virtual machine to match the new network hardware configuration. Role and Permission Issues On a Windows host, if you edit a permission, assign the Administrator role, and then immediately click Remove to delete the permission, the original permission still exists when you reopen the Permissions dialog box. Shared Virtual Machine Issues On Windows hosts, if a shared virtual machine has a floppy drive that is configured to connect at power on, and a remote user powers on the virtual machine, a dialog box appears on the host system asking whether to connect the device every time the virtual machine powers on. If you click Yes to close the dialog box on the host system after the virtual machine is completely up and running on the host system, Workstation crashes on the host system. On a 32 or bit Windows 7, bit Windows R2, or bit Windows XP Professional SP3 host, if you uninstall Workstation, preserve the configuration, and then reinstall Workstation to a different path, the Shared VMs item is unavailable in the virtual machine library. On a Windows host, if you create a virtual machine with a name that contains non-ASCII characters in the New Virtual Machine wizard, you cannot share the virtual machine with the Move the virtual machine option if the destination path is other than the system operating system location.
