    Incorrect version of driver "vmx86.sys"

    Alex802 Novice

       

      Hi everybody,

       

       

      I am new here so please have patience with me  http://communities.vmware.com/images/emoticons/happy.gif

       

       

      I have VMware Workstation 6.5.1 build 126130 installed on a Vista Ultimate 64bit SP1 updated to day. I had Workstation working fine with all my virtual machines but now I got into this problem I do not know how to fix (tried clean reinstall VMware Workstation software package a couple times but it didn't fix it, one time had my firewall/anitvirus package Comodo disabled - still not working).

       

       

      Practically evey time I try to start any virtual machine that works on another system (so it's not the VM's problem) I get this message:

       

       

      Could not get vmx86 driver version: The handle is invalid. You have an incorrect version of driver "vmx86.sys". Try reinstalling VMware Workstation. Failed to initialize monitor device.

       

       

      Followed by a message box saying:

       

       

      Cannot find a valid peer process to connect to.

       

       

      Any advice you could give me? Could not find anybody having this issue on Internet.

       

       

       

       

       

      Thanks!
