Please check System Preferences ==>Security&Privacy==>Privacy==>Accessibility, make sure you have added Fusion into the list. You need to quit and restart Fusion to take effect.
Thank you so much! You're a lifesaver.
Thanks so much, same issues on Mojave and Fusion 10.1.3.
I had to delete Fusion from the list in security and reads it with Fusion not started

Perfect, thank you, mine was there but had become un-ticked during the Mojave upgrade.
Thank you also. I thought I was looking at a downgrade from Mojave to High Sierra but found that the VMWare option had become deselected/unticked in my privacy settings after I had upgraded my Macbook Pro (host) to Mojave. For anyone else with this issue my set-up is
* Macbook Pro late 2014 (now running Mojave)
* Fusion 10.3.1
* 2 x VM's (1 x High Sierra and 1 x Windows 10) ... never at the same time
Symptom was that either VM would start OK (High Sierra would present a grey screen with Admin and Guest login options and the Windows 10 VM would present the only the start screen with no login option.) The mouse would move around OK but wouldn't do anything when I clicked around nor use the keyboard.
I made the Security/Privacy changes as per this thread and now I'm back to work
That is the fix! Much thanks!
I have done your recommended magic with Security/Accessibility but didn't get the full result: keyboard still unavailable.
I have copied physical PC (Windows 10 64-bit) using latest VMWare vCenter Converter and add files to VM Fusion Library by clicking on .vmx file.
In order to proper operation with VM, I've checked all hardware elements: network, memory and CPU type/core to be fit with original PC. Mouse pointer are moving and acting as usual, but KBD has no reactions. Any suggestions?
PS. VMWare Fusion Version 10.1.3 (9472307)
This is exactly this ! I did what your propose and it worked.
I had : Mac OS Moyave 10.14 and VMWare Fusion 8.5.10.
Thanks a lot !
I've never checked this in Security & Privacy before - why would it be necessary now?
Will I have to re-install Fusion or upgrade it?
why would it be necessary now?
Because macOS Mojave added extra security protections that require the user to make manual changes in order for VMware Fusion to keep on working like it used to.
Normally, you don't have to re-install, but you should enable VMware Fusion under (apple menu) System Preferences -> Security & Privacy -> Accessibility
