    Can't load VMWare Fusion Pro 10.1.1 Kext modules

      I've had Fusion Pro since 10.0.0 and only recently (probably after the last Apple update) started getting issues starting a VM. Digging further, I found that the Kernel Extensions can't be loaded:

       

      $sudo dmesg

      ...

      vmmon: Loaded com.vmware.kext.vmx86 Version 0752.01.54 Build 7520154 (Jan  6 2018 16:52:44)

      vmmon: Warning: Failed to register the major device number.

      Kext com.vmware.kext.vmx86 start failed (result 0x5).

      $ kextstat | grep -i vmware

      Using kextutil the extensions can't be loaded:

      A couple of times reinstalling and rebooting twice has helped but another reboot brings the issue again and I can't afford to reboot twice and reinstall every time I need to use Fusion.

       

      Any help would be appreciated.

       

      Thanks,
