    Vmware Wont Open a Virtual machine

    I have been trying to open a virtual machine but nothing happens.

    I did have Bitdefender installed but I've removed that (you can't add exclusions in the free version it seems),

    So I'm at a loss as to what is causing this. The only security I have running at the moment is Defender.

    It worked a few days ago.

    It can open existing machines ok.

    I just tried LibreOffice and it's open dialog box isn't working either. Something is blocking it.

    Hi there

    something is broken on your HOST OS if programs don't start.

    VMware is working perfectly (version 12.5.5) .

    Try checking on the HOST system if system files broken or whether you still have pending (Windows HOST) updates not applied or not applied properly.
