    Thank you for the link Brink. I will try to download a new copy and I will tell you if that solves the problem.

    A bad download or of more often simply seeing bad installs for just about any software are not uncommon with the second fresh install usually being the solution. Sometimes it takes a few additional install attempts to see a stubborn program actually go on however.

    One thing you will want to do is disable your av program and any other protections temporarily disabled when going for the second install in case one of those was the reason it didn't go on the first time. That will also prevent any disruptions even if that wasn't seen at all but to be on the safe side.

    Does not VMWare Player require to disable Windows Hypervisor? I see no mention for this in the tutorial.

    VMWare Workstation requires the hypervisor in Windows to be disabled before running it or it will break the whole VMWare and has to be reinstalled. This has been the case since Hyper-V got included in Windows.

    Here's how to do it:

    Open Elevated Command Prompt and type in the following one line at a time:

    bcdedit /copy {default} /d "Windows With Hyper-V"
    bcdedit /set {default} hypervisorlaunchtype off
    bcdedit /set {default} description "Windows With VMWare"
    bcdedit /timeout 2

    Now, when you start your computer and you need VMWare Workstation, then just let the timer run out in the boot selection screen or press Enter.

    If you want to use Hyper-V, then select the second boot entry and press Enter. Now you can run Hyper-V.

    WARNING! If you accidentally boot into Hyper-V mode and then start VMWare Workstation, the application will break and you have to reinstall it in order to getting it working again. This is also the reason why the VMWare boot option is set as the default one, so that you know that you are in VMWare mode in cases you missed the boot option selection screen. Hyper-V will not break if you are in VMWare mode, it will just not start any virtual machines.

    Please add this info to the original tutorial in this thread as I think it is important and very relevant and saves the VMWare user from a lot of headaches.
