I have made a upgrade VMWare Workstation from 16.1.2 to 16.2. When i run Simatic TIA portal V16 or V17 VMWare crash - stops working and is not abble to STOP - POWER down virtual machine. I need to go to processes in stop VMWare process - service.
Is that software running in a VM or on the host?
What is the host OS / version?
What is the OS / version inside the VM?
Can you post a screenshot? That often helps...
Simatic TIA portal v16 or v17 run VM
On host is Windows 11 PRO 21H2, but no mater i have try also under windows 10 21H1
Version inside the VM is Windows 10 21H1
Screen of VM freez and the only way to power down VM is shut down a task in windows process screen. Strange!
CPU on host is busy 23% with VM and 12GB RAM is accessible.
I have downgrade VM from 16.2 back to 16.1.2 and all is OK , .. i need to program my application on TIA.
No, my last answer was not correct! After one day i have same problems like before. So for now is the best to use VM v16.1.2. I have looking at windows events, when VM freez, a seconds before crash Wincc flexible SQL. What is the cose ???
I had some problems and I saw somewhere in a forum (I can't remember) to put this parameter into vmx file:
isolation.tools.hgfs.oplockmonitor.enable = "FALSE"
Since then I never had any more trouble.
This bug has not been fixed. I have the same issue and it doesn't matter what application is running in the VM.
Some more information for VMware:
If I "End Task" for VMWare Workstation, then start it again and try to power on a VM, I get error "Failed to connect to virtual machine: All pipe instances are busy."
