    wmware15 still woudnt start
    This thread is focused exclusively on VMware Workstation Player or Pro version 12 and 14 so you may have a completely different problem.
    i've changed the registry from 0 to 1
    Value "zero" means "Entry enabled, Hardblock active" so you didn't use the Compatibility Administrator program correctly.
    i followed all steps
    I don't think so.

    Interesting evolution...
    Will it be fixed?

    Thanks. The regedit worked like a charm on my VMWare 12

    Amazing - thanks for the solution. RegEdit worked for Workstation 11.

    I rarely use VMWare so I'm going to wait a month to see how this pans out. Corporates are going to be screaming at M$ and VM.

    The registry patch is a life saver.

    Two older systems with Xeon processors would neither:
    Allow a newer version of VMware to be installed - saying unsupported CPU.
    Nor allow VMware Workstation 12 or 11 to run.

    I can now run again after the patch.

    No because more info needed. Export logs and ask for help at vmware forum:

    I am stuck on VMWare 12 due to current hardware (CPU) being incompatible with later versions. The regedit fix worked perfectly … back up and running. Thanks

    Well in the end I just ended up getting the latest free player and use that for the time being. I hope that version 14.x will get updated.
