        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.

                  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:

                    1. First, uninstall VMWare completely.
                    2. Check this directory in Terminal: /Library/StagedExtensions/Applications/VMware Fusion.app/Contents/Library/kexts
                    3. If you see all the VMWare kexts there, then follow the steps below. You will not be able to delete these even with sudo
                    4. Reboot to Recovery (CMD+R)
                    5. 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.
                    6. In the Utilities menu, open Terminal
                    7. Enter this command: cd /Library
                    8. 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.

                                OK, I just ran into this problem, and it looked like I needed to go in Under Settings and allow access under accessibility and disk access.  That did not work.  I restarted the program since it said to do that for one of the settings...that did not work.

                                 

                                I rebooted and that did not work.

                                 

                                So I looked at following youtube video: 1:01[SOLVED] VMware could not open /dev/vmmon broken pipe and it was in front of me all the time, I just had to scroll on the first tab of the security preferences.

                                 

                                Scrolled down, enabled VM Ware and worked like a charm, except it never asked me where to install...

                                 

                                Hope this helps.

                                  I had the same behavior. I didnt want to disable kext-consent. There are a few things to look into as each situation may be different.

                                  1. Check to make sure the 3rd party extension is not blocked so check out the general tab in the privacy and security within the preferences app and verify you do not have a message that VMWare is blocked with an allow button. In my case, that wasn't my issue. A way to confirm if its not a blocked extension issue is to run kextstat |grep vm will list any vmware kext's that are loaded. If there are some in the list then its not a blocked extension issue.
                                  2. Run kextstat |grep -v com.apple. if you see virtual box kext's you will need to decide which virtualization software you want to use on your system. I had installed virtual box a while ago and uninstalled it but I guess it didnt remove the virtual box kext's when I uninstalled it. I had to remove the kexts in the /Library/Extensions folder using sudo rm -rf <kext file>
                                  3. After you make modifications via the loaded kext, restart and test again.
