    Workstation Player USB 3.0 unable to select on the controller

    OwenPropellorHead Lurker

      G'day all,

       

      I have an enterprise license for VMWare Workstation Player 15 and have installed 15.1.0.  Host and guest are both Win10 Pro.  Host can connect to my USB 3.0 and 3.1 devices without issue.  When I add a USB controller in the settings for a guest, it only allows me to select USB 1.1 or USB 2.0.  There's no option to select USB 3.0 (or USB 3.1).

       

      Does anybody know what I need to do to allow a USB 3.0 selection?

       

      I believe the VM guest may have been created using Virtualbox, as I had the IT department (I look after the operational technology - OT) create and export the VM for me.  I then imported from an OVF file.

       

      What can be done?

       

      Cheers,

      Owen
