Help! I recently updated my iOS to Yosemite the other day and now I can not open my Windows 7 VM. Everything was working perfectly before then so I'd have to assume that this error coincides with the update.
The error messages, in order, said this:
Anyone else experience this problem? If so, how did you fix it? I'm desperate! I've attached my support document and when running the command "ls -ld /dev /dev/vmmon" through Terminal, I got the following output:
nina-sfgroove:~ nina$ ls -ld /dev /dev/vmmon
ls: /dev/vmmon: No such file or directory
dr-xr-xr-x 3 root wheel 4198 Nov 10 02:38 /dev
Any help is much appreciated!!

"Log for VMware Fusion pid=1257 version=5.0.5 build=build-1945692 option=Release"
From your log files, I discovered you are running Fusion 5.0.5 on Yosemite, that right? If so, please upgrade your Fusion to latest version(6.0.5/7.0.1), because Fusion 5 is not supported on Yosemite.
For your problem, you could refer these topics to resolve:
I'm sorry to inform you that Fusion 5.x does not work under OS X Yosemite.
Fusion 5.x End Of General Support was on 2014/08/23, before the release of Yosemite.
You can look at Product Life Cycle Matrix for the exact dates.
It is highly unlikely that VMware releases an update to a product that has been retired.
You can roll back from Yosemite to Mavericks if you want to continue to use Fusion 5.x or update to a newer supported version.
If you want to test the newer version to see if it is worth your spending you can install and run a 30 day fully functional version before actually committing to spending anything.
After the 30 days, you buy a license to change the installed Fusion into an unlimited version.
