I have disabled encryption for the VM but it always restarts after about 2 min after I have logged in.
I have tried decreasing memory down to 1GB and up to 4 GB disabled and enabled accelerate 3D graphics nothing seems to make a difference. My Windows keeps on crashing. I have attached the vmware fusion log.
Starting in safe mode works.
In the event viewer I can seem some errors with
"The application-specific permission settings do not grant Local Activiation permission for the COM Server application with CLSID ... and APPID for the user NT Authority Location Serivce SID from address LocalHost (Using LRPC) running in the application container" (not full quote)
Not sure if this is related...
Update 10.08.19: I had an old backup of the encrypted VmWare image from May. I restored this and that one is running fine. I guess something broke in the newest image because of the decryption or the forceful shutdowns during the initial problems.
In Summary: Encrypted images seem to work again on Mac OS 10.14.6 with VmWare Fusion 11.1.1

Ah, ok. Thanks for the clarification. Sounds like we need to wait for an Apple patch to really fix things?
Updated to Fusion Version 11.1.1 (14328561) and no change. Fusion takes hours to load, with no other programs running on Mojave, and the Fusion program is unusable. Are there other fixes coming through soon?
Depending on your host and VM configuration that might actually be another -but possibly related- issue.
Have a look at this post:
For VMs to work reasonable on macOS 10.14.6 and Fusion 11.11.1 you still have to scale down the RAM to 2GB.
If that doesn't help then you might be hitting another issue and you could consider opening a ticket with VMware support.

I can confirm that VMWare update 11.1.1 has fixed the problems for me.
I am running windows 10 with disk encryption and TPM. My host disk is also encrypted. My use of the VM is not heavy (particularly disk I/O heavy), so I can't tell if the problems would come back, but currently I'm seeing no lag at 3.5GB of RAM.
Resolved here too
So we are screwed if we cannot update to v11.1.1? Nice, way to force an upgrade...
The only supported version of Fusion on Mojave is 11, and 11.1.1 is a free upgrade from that.
Can not work on machines with more than 2gb of memory even without encryption with version 11.1.1.
I pass on Parralells trial with which it works because I can not work anymore.
I am super disappointed with the slowness of a patch
Understand the frustration - from the root cause, Apple's bug has borked that whole thing. Parallels probably uses a different path, so we just got 'lucky'.....I hope there is a workaround other than waiting for apple to fix their mistake.
Updated to Fusion 11.1.1 on Friday. I rebooted my iMac and the Win 10 VM (8gb ram) seem to be running fine afterwards.
This morning I noticed the fan on my iMac wouldn't slow down. The VM was performing poorly. I restarted iMac and VM again, and VM's performance came back again.
I'm lowering the RAM to 2GB to see if it helps. My VM is not encrypted.
Set my virtual machines windows server 2008 encrypted and windows 10 un-encrypted to 2 GB of RAM and managed to solved the issue for me. I am using a late 2018 15" stock macbookpro. I am currently using both of them at the same time with no lag for the last 30 minutes.
Edit --- I am on VM Ware 10.1.6 ---
I have a 16GB MacBook Pro and today I was working with my 4GB Windows 10 VM. I had a few things opened, but memory usage still was not high. I opened Excel with a 50000 line CSV file and that caused the machine to start swap hell and basically the machine was dead at that point as it never recovered. This was on Fusion 11.1. I have now upgraded to 11.1.1 to see if that helps somewhat. I was able to re-enable accessibility so that appears to no longer be a problem or was a red-herring. I was holding off upgrading as my setup was working and 11.1.1 wasn't giving me a high confidence factor based on the comments in here.
I'm not doing anything heavy graphical (VS Code, Robo 3t, Firefox, and TeraData client) in the VM. But the VM is encrypted.
My Windows performance in Fusion is still slow and unusable. The update did not help. And of course I had just paid for Version 11. Has anyone here tried Parallels 15? I would prefer to stay with Fusion if anyone from VMware could give an estimate when this will be completely fixed---and soon. Otherwise I will be forced to switch to Parallels next week or just give up on VM approach completely and buy a dedicated PC for my work needs.
Agreed, 11.1 does not address the performance issue even when dropping to 2GB of RAM and one core. The performance of the VM is still unusable.
