    VMware Fusion 7 and Windows 10 Compatibility

    Resonant Lurker

      I run Windows 7 on my MacBook Pro using Fusion 7.  When the Get Windows 10 app appeared, I was pleased, and immediately went to reserve it.  Unfortunately, the app informed me that my system was not compatible with Windows 10 and therefore I could not reserve a copy.  The specific error received is, "This PC can't run Windows 10,"  and the reason given is, "VMware SVGA 3D, Your display won't work."  I find this a bit odd, since when I run the Windows 8.1 Compatibility Checker it says that everything is fine, including the SVGA driver.

       

      I queried on Microsoft's support site, and was told that this wasn't a Microsoft problem, but instead a VMware problem.  They stated that it would be up to VMware to create a driver that is compatible with Windows 10.

       

      Is this something that is in the works?  I'd certainly like to take advantage of Microsoft's offer to upgrade to Windows 10 for free.

       

      Thanks for any enlightening answers.
