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: 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.
