According to a VMWare employee, VMWare Fusion 5.x is not compatible with OS X Yosemite, and recommends upgrading to version 6 or above. See the answer in this thread here: https://communities.vmware.com/message/2451191#2451191 I was running into a similar problem and upgrading from Fusion 5 to Fusion 6.0.5 solved it for me.
I've upgraded to yosemite first and had VMWare 6.0.1 installed and sure enough it wasn't working after the OS upgrade. I then upgraded VMWare Fusion to 6.0.5 and although my VMs are working now, networking is not! I cannot access networks from any of my VMs and cannot make any changes to network settings. Everything is greyed out, even when the VM is down. ...
Edit ~/Library/Preferences/VMware Fusion/preferences file by adding following lines: pref.autoFitGuestToWindow = "FALSE" pref.autoFitFullScreen = "stretchGuestToHost" pref.autoFitGuestToWindow = "FALSE" disables auto fit for Single Window mode. pref.autoFitFullScreen = "stretchGuestToHost" disables auto fit for Full Screen mode.
The latest version of VMWare 6 is now OK with Yosemite. Previous versions would not even run if the system was upgraded to Yosemite. I would recommend upgrading VMWare to the latest version of v6 (currently 6.0.5) first, then upgrading the system to Yosemite. That way, when you boot into the new system, you should not have any problems with VMWare not ...
no! you must upgrade VMware first. else you WILL get a disk error when installing Yosemite
If you have following situation. Try cmd-r to see what OS is it trying to install. Go to one of the Mavericks machines, open the Mac App Store, click Purchases and see if it allows download of Mavericks. If so, download the installer but don't let it run. Copy the installer from Finder, Applications to a flash drive (at least 8 GB) and use that to ...
I also posted this on the VMWare forum: https://communities.vmware.com/message/2446538#2446538 I had an answer back from DrTone who said the following: Shutdown your VM and change your hardware mode from 11 to 10 and restart your VM. Your performance should be back to what you expect. Fusion has MAJOR issues with hardware level 11. I did as he ...
You could use BootCamp, but that would require you to buy Windows. The next best thing I can think of trying is Wine, which can run (some) Windows programs on a Mac. To check if your program has been tested to work under Wine, check the WineHQ app database. The database may not include a test of your program, so try running your program using WineBottler ...
I was talking with someone from Enterprise Sales who said this was only supported on Apple Hardware. This is frankly pathetic on an enterprise front. On our ESX hardware we run Windows Server, Windows Desktop, Unix and Linux boxes. It allows true cloud type functionality - we don't care what the underlying hardware is and have the ability to dynamically ...
