I am using Linux Mint 19.3 on my Asus X407UAR laptop.
I have VMware Workstation Pro 15.5.2 installed with Windows 7, Windows 10, Kali linux guests.
Yesterday i got an update to VMWare to version 15.5.6.
After update to VMWare Workstation Pro 15.5.6, I am unable to copy any file or folder from VM Guest to Host.
I am getting an error like "Error when getting information for file “/2yRtyN/signed-Stormshield_SSLVPN_Client_2.8.0_en_x64.msi”: No such file or directory".
This is the case with any file I try to copy from VM Guest to Host.
I am able to copy files & folders from Host to Guest VM.
What could be the issue.
I have even uninstalled VMWare workstation and reinstalled it.
Being new to Linux I am finding it very difficult to understand what could be the issue.
The path keeps changing for every file I try to copy, another error message when I copy a different file.
"Error when getting information for file “/xcQ9QK/vpnclient-darwin-4.9.01.0280-universal-k9.dmg”: No such file or directory"
Please check your Virtual Networks Editor - it should look like
If you do have 3 virtual networks you are OK.
In WS version 15.5.5 & 15.5.6 do not use "Automatic" for bridging, use the actual hardware from the drop-down list (see above screenshot)..
Shared folder is working normally when I checked with Windows Guests (haven't checked with a Linux guest as of now) and mapping them as a network drive.
This is a temporary fix till there is a solution to the issue.
this problem might not get any fix in linux.
i have gone back to windows 10, just because of this.
for me, linux is not working out as a host, linux will remain a guest in windows 10 for now.
