Version 15.5 is supported for Windows 8.1 Update 3.
Of course I have the latest updates for Windows 8.1.
What does VMWare call *Update 3* ?
I can only find an Update 3 for Windows 8.1 RT.
First I don't work for vmware, and I agree I have no idea what update 3 was. I was just thinking since windows 8 main support ended last year, I would have thought they wouldn't list it as supported, I didn't even see the update 3 one.
Can you share the vmware.log, maybe something in there will see why its crashing.
Windows 8.1 is supported 3 years longer than Windows 7.
The log files are large. Unfortunately I can't remember which day the problem occurred. I think I wait until it happens again and then send the current log file.
Now it's happened again. This time only after about 1:43 h. I just worked in the VM with Visual Studio 2017. In the log file a triple fault is reported in line 3454, but nothing more precise.
If you want, you can have a look at https://1drv.ms/u/s!AnJkahC5qjfidp--eOo403CQBWo?e=qLMDNW
I'd say it currently happens about once a week.
