Windows 10 Fail on VMWARE Fusion 7.1.2

Hi Folks

Tried to upgrade my VM with windows 8.1 to windows 10 this morning but is failing with a "VMWare SVGA 3D incompatibility warning"

I have the windows 10 icon on my system tray.

I have also checked this morning if there are any workarounds but alas none.

I have also sent a message on Tecnet to see if it is a MS problem.

Any help or advice greatly appreciated.

Andy

Hi,

This is a known issue and there's a workaround posted here:

Re: Will I be able to reserve a copy of Windows 10 using my Windows 8.1 VM?

edit: Please note that the workaround isn't a supported one by either Microsoft or VMware, but as you mentioned having looked for a workaround, figured I might point you to that post.
