Hi there.

While we are on a Windows Forum I know some people run Linux here - so if you find that Workstation or Player (VMWARE) 11 / 7 doesn't work properly on a LINUX HOST (I've still got problems with Unity and random freezes running Windows 8.1 and 10 guests) then to DOWNGRADE simply issue the following command as root (or sudo) in a console. Ignore message failed to load module xxx if it appears -- a graphic GUI uninstaller will appear and then just uninstall.

su (or sudo)

/usr/bin/vmware-installer -u name where name is your product (usually vmware-workstation or vmware-player).

I've been messing around also with the nice plasma screens so I think the video is too hosed up -- gone back a release. (Sometimes it doesn't pay to be TOO leading edge !!!).

Now you can re-install your previous version.
