Thank you very much! This finally solved it for me. I had to reboot my laptop after manually adding the Full Disk Access for WMware Fusion.
I have added full disc access and rebooted, still have the same issue
I am running Mojave 10.14.3 and have selected Windows 10 x64
I would really appreciate help to get this fixed ASAP
I have the same problem.. MacBook pro2018 MacOS Mojave and win10 bootcamp
Hello, I had the same error message.
I'm running Mojave (10.14.3) on a 2017 12-inch retina macbook.
My VMWARE fusion version is 11.0.2, and I downloaded it yesterday and just checked for updates.
I noticed a notification that the mac OS had blocked some elements from loading. Next to this was a button that said something like 'allow'. Once I clicked this, the issue was resolved.
The notice appeared in the system preferences -> security pane, right under the allow SW from app store / app store + identified devs option.
Hope this helps.
I had the the same problem, and tried the steps recommended by other users such as uninstalling and re-installing, going to System Preferences, ensuring Full Disk Access and Accessibility is allowed. None of that worked.
I am running the latest update Mojave on a late 2013 27" iMac and VMWare Version 11.0.3 (12992109)
What worked for me:
- First, uninstall VMWare completely.
- Check this directory in Terminal: /Library/StagedExtensions/Applications/VMware Fusion.app/Contents/Library/kexts
- If you see all the VMWare kexts there, then follow the steps below. You will not be able to delete these even with sudo
- Reboot to Recovery (CMD+R)
- Make sure your Macintosh HD (or main HD) is mounted (check in Disk Utiltiy). This will not be automatically mounted if you are using APFS with encryption.
- In the Utilities menu, open Terminal
- Enter this command:
- Folowed by:
rm -rf ./StagedExtensions/Applications/VMware\ Fusion.app
Now restart and re-install VMWare. The broken pipe error should now be fixed. The reason this is happening is that in the later versions of Mojave, the kexts are blocked and moved to StagedExtensions instead of being installed.

This presented solution doesnt solve the problem with vmware fusion 11.0.3 and mac osx 10.14.5 Beta (18F108f)
we must wait of a answer or update from vmware or apple
or a user founding a solution!
None of solutions presented here worked.
I have macOS Mojave 10.14.5 and VMware Fusion 11.0.3.
FYI I did following.
1) Completely uninstall VMware and reboot
2) Run following commands and re-install VMware.
xattr -l ~/Downloads/VMware-Fusion-11.0.3-12992109.dmg
xattr -dr com.apple.quarantine ~/Downloads/VMware-Fusion-11.0.3-12992109.dmg
3) Checked Security & Privacy General Tab. No message about VMware app.
4) Allow Full Disk Access to VMware from Privacy tab and reboot.
5) Run following command to allow app running from anywhere.
sudo spctl --master-disable
I appreciate if anyone can help.
No, we have done this with a vmware engeener and this had not solved the problem.
3. no message about vmware app
4. allow full disk access is given
This continues to be a problem. I have tried all of the previously suggested solutions to no avail.
Please make this a priority as the various VM's I use DAILY are dead in the water.
I will be happy to provide whatever information I can which will lead to a solution.
No sure why but this issue has been gone.
It seemed no version for both macOS and VMware Fusion is upgrade.
This is very strange.
