    Fusion terminates trying to open VM

    blackpuma Hot Shot

      My Linux workstation is old, and has taken up the habit of powering off suddenly. (It'll be diagnosed and fixed.)

       

      I copied a VM that was running when the host powered off, so it has WRITELOCK and READLOCK files.

       

      I tried opening the VM from Fusion to see what happens. The Fusion GUI immediately quits without generating any logfile or other diagnostic information from what I can see. Any previously-running VMs continue to run in the background.

       

      What can I do to provide useful information in this case?

          When I remove the READLOCK and WRITELOCK files, the GUI still crashes hard.

           

          Fusion is leaving a  .vmx.WRITELOCK file behind.

            Try looking for the Fusion GUI log here:

            ~/Library/Logs/VMware Fusion/vmware-vmfusion.log

              Ahh... thank you.

               

              Looks like some assert is failing, but I'm not sure what it means.
