    can't suspend anymore

    peter_w2019 Novice

      Dear All,


      I am having a really difficult time with Vmware right now. Put aside the MacOS 10.14.6 problem where my Vmware is getting usable every couple of minutes, now I am facing another problem.


      everytime I suspend the state it's going too fast. then when I try to start it again, I get an error message as attached. and there is no such file in the directory. why is this happening now?


      it's getting worse everyday. please help.


      thanks in advance

          That most likely is a side effect of the change to your config file that Dave suggested:


          Add these 2 lines to ~/Library/Preferences/VMware Fusion/config


          mainmem.backing = "swap"

          mainmem.useNamedFile = "FALSE"

            indeed these two settings in my vmx config did cause this. but I really don't understand why this problem did not show immediately. after I changed this first it did seem to work, since I could suspend and continue. but now I can reproduce the issue by putting the options in and fix it by removing them again.


            really bizarre.


            anyway, without then it works again.
