after upgrading a guest VM to Windows 10 2004 I'm experiencing video issue, mainly flickering and windows refresh.
I've to reinstalled VMware Tools but the issue was not fixed.
I've found a workaround disabling 3D acceleration in the display options of this guest.
My VMware Workstation version is 15.5.6 build-16341506.
Any ideas on how to fix this issue?
Thanks in advance
I'm experiencing an issue which may be similar. I have VMware Workstation Pro 15.5.6 build-16341506. Until I updated my guest to Windows 10 2004, the guest was working properly. Since I updated, I cannot shut down the guest from the guest's Start menu. Shutting it down from the Workstation menu (VM | Power | Shut Down Guest) also works. When I click on the guest's Windows symbol in the lower left corner, the menu comes up with a transparent background; only the icons for the applications show. Clicking on the power symbol doesn't bring up anything.
I'm having the exact same issue. Windows 10 Home guest, Workstation Pro 15.5.2 build-15785246. Updated VMware tools did not resolve the problem. I have troubleshot it down to the 2004 update (fortunately I have snapshots I could roll back to). I've updated two other Windows 10 Edu guests without any issues. I have one other Windows 10 Home physical build that did not have any issues with the update.
UPDATE: Issue resolved. I had to change the hardware compatibility to Workstation 15.x from Workstation 11.x. I found the answer here: https://www.reddit.com/r/vmware/comments/grrhh0/graphical_issues_with_windows_10_2004_within/
RDPetruska - thanks for the tip, I updated Workstation Pro and VMware tools on the guest but still no luck. Still having video issues after upgrading to version 2004 on Win10 Home. Note, I have two other VM's with Win10 Pro and Edu, those upgraded to version 2004 without any issues.
It's not really a solution, but I reverted to a snapshot from April 2020 (Windows 10 1903) and things are much better now. Fortunately, I don't think there were any files created since the snapshot that I really need.
