Since Windows 10 1903 is now officially out, when will Workstation be upgraded to work with it?

Last week the final Windows 10 1903 was released via MSDN for developers. Needless to say, many of us are upgrading to test / develop with that new feature update.

I've had to migrate all my VMs to Hyper-V in order to be productive but I really prefer VMware Workstation.

Any estimated timeframe for getting an update that works with the new feature update?

It looks hyper-v is running on your host. Please try to disable hyper by running below command as Admin:

bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off

by the way, restarting host is required, then you could power on your vm.

Hope it helps.

Best Regards

I have the same issue.  I can't use the work around "bcdedit /set hypervisorlaunchtype off" to get it to work breaks the functionality of other software I use.  Hopefully VMware will work with Microsoft or come out with an update to make it compatible with windows without disabling functionality used by other programs.

Hi,

NO I do not have any more details, but apparently something exciting was shown in the "What's New for VMware Workstation and Fusion" presentation at VMworld this year.

This is actually a great feature Microsoft introduced. You no longer need any registry or GPO hacks to keep Windows from auto upgrading and rebooting without permission. Now you can just install a piece of unsupported software, and boom!  no more updates!
