I have same problem, tried all the options including VPN.
Still facing same issue.
Any other options to try ?
It seems that my use of IVPN is causing the same issue. Wow, what a head-scratcher. I could not for the life of me figure out why I was only seeing a black screen when powering on my virtual machines. Now that I've disconnected, I have no problem.
Updating to VMware 15 seeing if that fixes the issue... sadly vpn programs mess with alot im using "WindScribe"... if thats the issue ill face palm hard XD
I am having the same issue with my vm. I have tried all these i don't have the nord vpn i have one machine that is still black. does anyone know how to retrieve data from the machine?
In my case, prior to this happening I was playing around with my Nvidia Control Panel settings. I changed the option to have all my apps by default use the Integrated Intel VGA instead of my RTX graphics card. I changed it back to Automatic and it was fine but I guess I could've just as well have forced VMWare to use the RTX. No changes to VMware Workstation settings required.
