    cannot use VMWARE WORKSTATION PLAYER 15

    GRJBYFLEET Novice

      I have upgraded from VMWare 12.  I installed VMWARE workstation Player 15 on Windows 10.  I clicked on the ICON, and it starts to load.  It fails with:

      "Host supports AMD-V, but AMD-V is disabled".

      Player 12 was running Windows XP Pro.as an operating system.

      As I cannot run VMWare 15 how can I enable AMD-V setting?

          Hello,                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

          1) Update the BIOS.
          2) Set the virtualization in the BIOS (I assume You have an AMD processor).

           

          It must work.

            I cannot get into the BIOS.  I have tried "Delete" key, "F1" key, "Alt and F4" key to no avail:

             

            I have the following machine:

            AMD A10-8750 Radeon R7, 12 Computer cores.

             

            Anything else I can try to get to BIOS?

              When You start the host computer, You will be presented with information about the shortcuts that are used to run the BIOS (at least it should be displayed). You do all the settings on the host's equipment. It will not work on the guest equipment.
