VMWare Workstation 17 Pro Autostart Service is not working

Greetings,

 

I am having issues getting the list of VMs showing on the new feature for AutoStart on VMWare Workstation 17 Pro.

 

I made sure I followed the steps in the KB # 

https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-Workstation-Pro/17/com.vmware.ws.using.doc/GUID-44497201-A4AC-4867...

 

The user is local and it's admin

Gave a full a control over the VMs vmx files + vmautostart.xml file

 

Service is running from services.

 However, still the VM list is not showing up.

Any idea what could be the issue here?

 

Thanks

Hello There!

I managed to find a solution for this problem:

  1. Remove your existing vm's from the library, but don't delete the files. 🙂
  2. In the next step open them again.
  3. After this your vm's should appear in the "Configure VM power actions" panel.

It worked for me. I hope it will help others.
