I have installed
VMWare 14.0 on
Ubuntu 16.04 (both 64 bit versions) following instructions here.
I made a new virtual machine to install a
Windows 7 - 64 bit, but when I want to power it on to install my ISO file, the workstation says:
Unable to change virtual machine power state: Disconnected from virtual machine.
There is no hard disk issue; I have 59G available and this VM needs maximum 40G hard disk.
What is wrong or where can I find the cause?
I have tried
sudo /usr/bin/vmware-modconfig --console --install-all; this is what I've got at the end:
Starting VMware services: Virtual machine monitor failed Virtual machine communication interface done VM communication interface socket family done Blocking file system done Virtual ethernet failed VMware Authentication Daemon done Unable to start services
