I upgraded VM to workstation 15. Problem still occurs.
That's because it isn't likely to be a VMware problem, but a Microsoft one.
Something got corrupt on that VM and now that part does not work well. I know it is strange for it to work well on one VM, but not on another.
It happens, might be a bodged update or something like that.
See if the steps here help:
