    Copy / paste in virtual machine results in Workstation 10.0.4 crash.

    tvedel Novice

      Set up:

      VMware Workstation 10.0.4 on a Windows 8.1 64 bit host with 16 GB RAM

      2 x Virtual machines running Windows 8.1 64 bit with 4 GB RAM each



      1. Start up both virtual machines in Workstation.
      2. Open Windows Explorer on one of the virtual machines, and start a file copy using CTRL - C, but do not press CTRL - V to finish the file copy.
      3. Switch to the other virtual machine -> The host operating system shows immediately "VMware Workstation stopped working" and VMware Workstation is shut down.


      It appears that only the Workstation user interface is shut down: Both vm's are still running when Workstation is re-started on the host.

      The issue has been confirmed on two different installations of Workstation.

      Can anybody else confirm this issue?
