Tip: Windows 8.x VM doesn’t start on VMWare Workstation 10

Sunday, November 23rd, 2014

Hello Folks,

if you have installed the latest Microsoft Security Hotfix KB2995388 to a Windows 8 VM running on VMWare Workstation 10 you might run into the issue that the VM doesn’t start anymore.

To fix this open the file c:\ProgramData\VMWare\VMWare Workstation\config.ini and add the line vmmon.disableHostParameters=”TRUE”

Restart the VMwareHostD service and than start the VM again, it should work now…

Have fun!
