    macOS Sierra 10.12 GM (Gold Master) as host Error starting VM "Could not open /dev/vmmon: No such file or directory." VMWare Fusion 8.1.1

      I seen some earlier versions were also popping up "Could not open /dev/vmmon: No such file or directory.", with remedies such as:


      1. Reinstall VMWare Fusion

      2. Repair permissions.


      I have reinstalled VM - same problem.

      Under macOS Sierra there is no way to repair permissions - option for that has been removed from disk utils and from command line.


      It is said VMWare Fusion 8.5 is coming (now delayed) - but till that, what other fix is available?
