Please enlighten us by sharing which specific VMware product you mean when you say “vmware”?

It sounds like Workstation Pro or Workstation Player, but you might surprise us.

That is helpful for any thread you create, as is trying to create it in the area of the Communities for that product, so it gets the correct audience.

I've reported your thread to moderators asking them to move it to the area for Workstation Pro.

Well, that would be a good first troubleshooting step - to verify if the conflict is indeed from Workstation.

After that, you could reinstall and then post details of your setup if you want someone to attempt to diagnose.  Also please realize all of us are volunteer users just like yourself...  it's quite possible nobody else has encountered your issue before.

Note that this is a user forum, where people help others if they can, in their own time.

There's a big difference there between nobody wanting to help you and nobody having the time and the knowledge to help you.
