WKS 15.0.2 GSOD on W10 insder pro build 1809-18290-1000 (the latest)

Both Workstation and player cause Windows to abend (GSOD) -- not possible to show screen as windows dies with message : kernel - security exception. This happens on the latest Windows insider build .

The defect happens when you try to power on any GUEST - whether Windows or Linux Guests.

Any known fixes yet

Thanks

Have you tried creating an Ubuntu 16.04 VM without using Easy Install?

What I found I had to do was create the VM without the OS, then install the OS.  However it still does not always start when I need it too sometimes requiring a restart of the host system.  In the log I see a message about a timeout.

I've got the same GSOD issue and this is my Consultancy laptop that I use VMWare WS for for all my Labs!!

MSI GE72 6QD Apache Pro

18290.1000

WS 12.5.9 build-7535481

Hopefully this will get fixed soon as I will get very worried if it continues. Shame on you MS as you should have known loads of people use VMWare WS!

If you had bothered to take some time and read through this thread you would have learned that by updating to Windows 10 Insider Preview build 18305.1003 this problem has been fixed by Microsoft for most users [using Workstation 15.0.2].
