SecureInput not released problem

I'm using VMWare Fusion 1.1.3 and recently I've applied a OS X upgrade to trivial applications but the problem is that since those upgrades there is a process that starts and dies on boot but leaves SecureInput locked, so I can't kill the PID that 'ioreg -l -w 0 | grep SecureInput' is showing me that has requested SecureInput. Thus leaving me without a working VMWare. I need to solve this issue ASAP because I use this VMWare for my work.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance,

Michel Peterson

The only workaround would be to not run that program (which I assume isn't an option)

Sadly it isn't an option. That's the only solution? I'm just against the wall till more people begin having the same problem?

We plan to have a fix available in the next beta release of VMware Fusion 2.0.

Awesome, there has been a VMWare codebase rework on this? It's secure to upgrade working VM to 2.0 beta? I'm not afraid of testing, just don't want to lose the VM disk integrity.

Michel

As with any beta, we do a lot of testing with the product and do our best to ensure VM disk integrity, but we do not recommend that you use it in a production environment. Always back up your VMs before using any beta product.

We haven't announced an ETA for the next release, but we're working very hard to get it ready for you.
