Error in VM Workstation: Minimum requirements not met.....

Jump to solution

I had an error where when attempting to open a VM, VMware Workstation game me an error that the Minimum requirements of host system had not been met. This did not make sense to me as I was had a brand-new system and all software was updated. After hours of trouble shooting I found the error. I post the solution below.

Solution: The issue was that I had enabled Hyper-V with Windows 10 Pro. When I attempted to turn it off as a first step to trying to solve the error, I thought I had completely turned Hyper-V off, but that was not the case. There are two distinct steps to turning hyper-v off on the Windows system and I had only done the first step. The article with solution is found here: https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/2146361
