While trying to install VMRC client on Windows 10 i get error "Failed to install the HCmon driver" and setup is rolled back.
Does anybody have any ideas on how to fix this?
From your link:
Starting the MSI from an elevated (Administrative) Powershell window worked for me. (Per the last post on the other thread you linked to) - on Windows 10. (I've already installed the vSphere 5.5 thick client & Client Integration Plugin) I had gotten the UAC popup running it normally, but didn't work. Elevated launch did.
Do you have VMware Workstation already installed on the same client machine? If yes, then you may want to try uninstalling it first and then install VMRC. I know it's not a good solution, but it might be good work around that may unblock you.
Stop the "VMware USB Arbitration Service" and "VMware Serial Com Redirection Client Service" before installing then just restart them. No need to reboot (tested on Windows 10 latest build, but shouldn't make any difference). Be sure to have Administrative priviledges.
VMware-VMRC in windows10 need administrator's right. But UAC very .....
in my case I open command with system administrator right & run VMware-VMRC-8.0.1-3747990 in the command window
and it's work.
hope can help you
I had same problem and I solved this way: Right click on installer file then select "troubleshoot compatibility" after you will get test run.
Actually this will skip current version option.
