    Transport (VMDB) error -14: Pipe connection broken; macOS Catalina Fusion 11.5.1

    Pekd Lurker

      Hello

       

      I get the above error when trying to create or start any VM.

      Permissions in Preferences -> Security & Privacy seems good; VMware are allowed full disk access and screen recording, accessibility, and Input monitoring.

      In the VMware Fusion Service.log I have the following error:

       

      Waiting for vmci kext...

      Warning: FusionServicesWaitForKext: CTLIOCGINFO failed: No such file or directory

       

      I've tried a complete removal of VMware, reboot, and reinstallation.

       

      Does anyone know how to fix this?

       

      logs are attached.

          I have exactly the same issue. I'm running macOS Catalina and Fusion 11.5.1

           

          In addition to exactly the same errors you posted here in the logs I also have in /var/log/system.log :

           

          Dec 28 18:29:51 i9 VMware Fusion[31494]: assertion failed: 19D49f: libxpc.dylib + 95826 [4EB65320-241F-39E3-8488-05B64C80F1A7]: 0x89

           

          Looks like libxpc.dylib is the real problem here, but that's probably up to vmware to adjust to the changed library in catalina.
