I had the issue with Workstation Pro 14.1.7 getting an error message on startup with the latest Windows 10 patches. I uninstalled the Windows updates and Workstation worked.
Today I upgraded to Workstation Pro 14.1.8 which the release notes say fixes the issue with Windows 1903. After the upgrade to 14.1.8 I was able to start Workstation. My computer battery died and shut-off the machine while Workstation was running. Now when I start Workstation, nothing happens. I do not get the Workstation interface. The VMware services are running. I do not receive any error messages when attempting to start Workstation. I tried uninstalling Workstation and re-installing it, but still Workstation will not start.
I still have Windows Updates on the host paused. My Windows version is 1903 (Build 18362.388.)
Any suggestions on how I can get Workstation Pro to start?
Last night, I uninstalled 14.1.8 and then re-installed 14.1.7. It does not start either.
