VMware Workstation unrecoverable error: (vmui) - Running on Kali Linux 4.13.0-kali1-amd64

When I try to power on my virtual machine I receive a message that host has no free memory and, when I try some option like Help->About VMware Workstatoin it close abruptly. Looking at logs I saw a Unexpected signal: 11. The entire log has attached.

How much RAM does the host system have, and how much RAM is your virtual machine configured to use?

What is the setting under Edit > Preferences > Memory?

Is workstation running as Administrator?

Open the C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Workstation\config.ini

Is there an vmmon.disableHostParameters = "TRUE" entry?

Last, is KB2995388 installed on this machine?

Hi.

I'm running workstation on a linux host (Kali Linux) with 16GB of RAM and my virtual machine (windows) is configured with 4GB.

I tried running Workstation as admin (root) too and the same error stay happening.

Same error here.

I cannot create new virtual machine nor even click in "about". VMware Workstation just close.

I can run older VMs (previously created).
