VMware Workstation Player, Hyper-v and Containers compatibility issues on Windows 10 64bit

Jump to solution

After installing Hyper-v on a Windows 10 Professional 64bit PC I noticed that VMware Workstation player stopped working, so I removed Hyper-v it as I have several VMs I need to use.

Is it a documented compatibility issue or was in only a problem related to my PC?

I would like to enable Windows containers on the same Windows 10 PC: is there any known compatibility issue with VMware Workstation Player?

By the way, I installed and use VirtualBox on the same PC with no compatibility problem if I use only one hypervisor at the same time.

Regards

Hi,

Hyper-V is handling this a bit different as VirtualBox or other hypervisors, please see this reply from jmattson for an explanation:
