In workstation 8.0.0, vmware-hostd.exe appears to grab port 443 - this prevents IIS from starting on the host (I'm using VS 2010 for .net development)
- is this addressed in 8.0.1 ?
I don't have access to VMware Workstation 8 at the moment. However, I think you can change the port in the Shared VM's preferences. see http://kb.vmware.com/kb/2005585
Yes CHANGE that port number!!! Why VmWare thought it was a smart idea to set the default port to one reserved for HTTPS is beyond me. You can find unaasigned port numbers by searching the internet. I used 449.
