I have same problem, tried all the options including VPN.
Still facing same issue.
Any other options to try ?
It seems that my use of IVPN is causing the same issue. Wow, what a head-scratcher. I could not for the life of me figure out why I was only seeing a black screen when powering on my virtual machines. Now that I've disconnected, I have no problem.
Updating to VMware 15 seeing if that fixes the issue... sadly vpn programs mess with alot im using "WindScribe"... if thats the issue ill face palm hard XD
