Unable to change virtual machine power state: Internal error

Bonjour,

Old config :

OS : OpenSUSE LEAP 42.2

VMware Workstation 11

1 VM Windows 2000 = OK

1 VM Widows XP = OK

1 VM Windows 10 = OK

New config :

OS : OpenSUSE LEAP 42.3

VMware Workstation 14 Pro

1 VM Windows 2000 = KO

1 VM Widows XP = KO

1 VM Windows 10 = KO

With the same message on Power On "Unable to change virtual machine power state: Internal error"

Sory for my very poor english

1. try creating a blank VM and check if that VM gives ‘Internal Error’ or not

2. If all the VMs gives internal error, then manually remove WKS , restart the PC and install WKS again

3. If only 1 VM gives internal error, then we can only proceed after reviewing the logs

Hello,

After uninstalling VMware with "vmware-install -u", reboot and reinstall is exactly the same.
