    Windows 10 pop-up message: "VMWare Workstation Pro can't run on Windows" (Solved <temporarily?>)

    dnintzel Lurker

      Hello,

      I have been using VMware-player-12.1.1-3770994 for several months mostly every day up until last night on my Windows 10.

      Tonight I returned and tried to start VMWare but getting Windows 10 pop-up message: "VMWare Workstation Pro can't run on Windows" from the "Compatibility Assistant" with  with option to check for updates. Clicking that option brings me to the "VMware Workstation 15.5.0 Player for Windows 64-bit Operating Systems" download page.

       

      Looking at my "Installed Updates" I see updates from Yesterday (10/04/19-KB4524147) and the day before  (10/03/19 - KB4516115)

       

      SOLUTION <temporarily?>: Removed (10/04/19-KB4524147) and able to start & load VMWare.

       

      However, I would like to keep up with latest updates. Will newer players (e.g. v15) work with latest Windows 10 updates?

       

      Thanks and regards,

      Doug
