2 Issues with Fusion 4.0.1

Hello,

after Upgrading from Fusion 3 to 4.0.1, the IDE hard disk of my Windows 7 VM (single growable file) is shown with a size of 233 GB instead of 40 GB. Fortunately from within Windows guest everything looks normal (C: 40 GB) and the file is 27 GB in size on the Mac host.

OK, someting gone wrong when the VM was updated. I'll just try to copy and reimport the .vmdk - which leads to the next issue:

Where is vmware-vdiskmanager? /Library/Application Support/VMware Fusion/ is empty besides two license files. Where have all the command line tools gone?

Thanks in advance,

Patrick

VMware Fusion 4 is a self-contained application bundle. The vmware-vdiskmanager is now in:

/Applications/VMware Fusion.app/Contents/Library

If you copy the VMware Fusion.app somewhere else, adjust accordingly.

Best Regards,

Hi, Simon,

thanks a lot - that cleared up one major question. Unfortunately even the converted disk is shown with 233 GB size when I try to reimport it through the GUI; then the import is cancelled with some message about inappropriate disk size 😉

Well, ... I'll keep on experimenting. Oddly, my other VM, FreeBSD with a 40 GB disk, doesn't exhibit this Bug/Feature.

Kind regards,

Patrick

Hi Patrick,

Does your VM by any chance have snapshots?
