    Kernel 4.6 - VmPlayer 12 - vmnet & vmmon compilation failure

    Roman_F Lurker

      Hello, when compiling modules for 4.6 kernel, I am receiving errors like these bellow.

      I can find many threads, how to fix these problems on lower kernel versions, I have tried also here, no success.

      Can anyone navigate me, how to solve this one issue?
