    VMware Player fails to initialize after upgrading to version 6

    DaanS Lurker

      When starting VMWare Player 6, all UI elements are missing and there are several boxes on the right side of the window. After several seconds, Windows reports the application as "not responding". Memory, CPU and disk usage are all low. So as far as I can tell, the application is not simply busy. I've never had any problems like this with VMWare Player 5.0.x and earlier, and I can still downgrade to a fully functioning 5.0.2. However, I'd really like to upgrade to take advantage of support for newer Guest OS's.

       

       

      Does anyone have any ideas on how I can get VMWare Player 6 working correctly?

       

       

      I've attached a screenshot of the VMWare Player window. I'm using Windows 7 Pro SP1 64-bit on an Intel Core 2 Duo (E8400). Please let me know if I can provide any other information that might help.
