Good morning, I have updated Workstation to version 16. Being a web programmer, I also run a local Web Server on my PC to test PHP pages.
Reading the Release Notes of this new version I noticed that the Shared VMs feature has been removed.
The problem lies in the vmware-hostd.exe process, which uses port 443, not allowing me to run XAMPP. I tried to look in VMware settings, but the ability to change port has been removed.
Try to fix it as fast as possible.
I didn't update to v16 yet, so this is taken from v15.
Since I don't use Shared VM's, the "VMware Workstation Server" (VMwareHostd) service is disabled on my PC. The port that it uses - in case it's enabled - can be found in C:\ProgramData\VMware\hostd\proxy.xml.
Just to extend AP's answer.
I had exactly the same problem. To disable the https server change the third line in C:\ProgramData\VMware\hostd\proxy.xml
This has disabled the https server on my machine. If you set it to a non -1 value, that seems to be the port that the server will use. YOu will need to restart the "VMWare Workstation Server" services on you pc to make the change effective.
