    Have you simply tried uninstalling and reinstalling latest version?

    Yes of course I did. Downloaded very last version too. Now I don't know if it's due to this build or new HW.

    Hard to say - only thing I can suggest is to create a virtual hard drive and clean install 1703 in it and see if that works, then try 1511 etc., trying older version of vmware etc. But hey - you are an expert so I am teling you to suck eggs. Maybe our resident vmware expert @jimbo could shed some light?

    Ok, so very stupid happened. actually two of them. As it wouldn't work initially I turned on Hyper-V and Hypervisor and as it still wouldn't work I forgot about it. Than I thought that CPU virtualization wasn't enabled. Looked and looked thru BIOS (stupid UEFI) and couldn't find setting. At the end, just like any full blooded male person I resorted to humiliation and looked in the MB manual at last. That's where I found that they called it very (un)imaginative name "AVX" (without any explanation). It should have been enabled by default (as per manual) but it wasn't. I enabled it and than it wouldn't work until Hiper-V Hpervisor was turned. off but now VM works as advertised.

    This thread from our sister site may be useful so you can use hyper-v or vmware.

    Solved Hyper V and VMWare on the same machine


    Out of interest, why are you using VMware over Hyper-V. Hyper-V does have one annoying restriction in that you cannot get sound in basic mode.
