Can I have more details on that, please - such as hardware selected in the VM config, more detailed explanation of the process. Cant seem to replicate it in VMplayer 14
had to be
Just in case I deleted sound.virtualDev = "hdaudio", and rebooted. Works fine for now.
I can't get the sound to work properly because windows 10 will not allow me to use the supplied vmware driver. It either says it's incompatible or smugly states the microsoft driver is better. Neither updating the driver or deleting it and adding a new sound device seems to work. Windows refuses the vmware driver.
I also commented out the line,
sound.virtualDev = "hdaudio",
I wonder if this has anything to do with the spring 2018 windows 10 update.
Thank-you @antus for clarifying the need of a two step process. The combination of commenting out 'sound.virtualDev = "hdaudio"' and reinstalling the drivers in Windows 10 worked for me.

Left VMWare Player Linux some time ago and started using VirtualBox.
I came back to VMWare Player Linux today and can't believe the audio issues have not been fixed?
Does VMWare even care about this?
It's been an issue for years.
Just my 2 cents...
