macOS 12 (monterey) does not work on Vmware fusion (mac) and Vmware player.

I tried to install macOS 12 (Moonterey) on Vmware fusion 12(mac)  and also on Vmware player 16 (PC).

I upgraded Big Sur 14.x to Monterey, and the updating process went well. After completing the update, Monerey started up normally. But the network connection of Monterey does not work, no connection! This occured also on the Vmplayer on Windows.

Please report the same or similar report for this Monterey problem.

Note that you cannot discuss running MacOS on non-Apple hardware (such as a Windows PC running VMware Workstation) here on VMTN.

Why is that? Because it's a EULA violation.

Note also that VMTN is a user community forum, not a formal support channel.

Same experience here with a macOS Monterey VM on VMware Fusion, so it's useless. My best guess right now is that we need to wait until VMware creates a "macOS 12.0" OS setting in Settings >> General. Not holding my breath, but a workaround would be nice.

Read down a few threads in the forum.  There are workarounds.

 

Edit: For fusion.  There is no workaround for running on non-apple hardware.

Thanks, dlhotka. This might help matsuda0707 and me:

I'm just checking it out now, and will start by changing

ethernet0.virtualDev = "e1000e"

 to

ethernet0.virtualDev = "vmxnet3"

I'm just the messenger - @mroy is the guru :-).  Pretty darn cool that it works though....I'll have to play with it myself when I get a chance.
