Being worked on with Mac Son of Knife. I don't know why Filedropper is causing problems as it has been fine for the last 3-4 years of my use of it.


I just managed to download it after 20+ tries...
I guess they are having some temporal infrastructure problems...

It seems that the patch can also be run on exe with adjusted BIOS (like added SLIC and/or SLP), as it touches bits "outside" the Vmware BIOS

Thanks a lot

Please edit the post. We deliberately don't print that out as it is what Apple legal go after.

UPDATE: THanks Sebus for your prompt action to remove the line.

I had the same issue, did you open up command prompt as administrator? That was my whole problem, once I opened up command prompt as Admin, and pointed it to the patch it installed successfully...I had the patch saved to my download folder and then copied the address over to the prompt, then typed in install.cmd and boom success.

I'm getting the following message when attempting to boot into an OS X Lion guest:

Could not get vmx86 version: The handle is invalid.
You have an incorrect version of the driver "vmx86.sys".
Try reinstalling VMware Workstation.
Failed to initialize monitor device.


Any ideas?
I'm running Windows 7 Professional x64

(The steps I took are as follows:
- downloaded and extracted unlock-wks800-471780-windows.zip
- ran cmd.exe as an Administrator and navigated to the extracted folder
- ran install.cmd)

EDIT: I found a workaround. Run VMware Workstation as an administrator and the problem goes away. This problem occurred for all my guests, not just OS X.

Sorry if this is slightly off-topic, but has anyone successfully used Apple hardware such as the touchmouse or touchpad with a VMWare instance of Lion? If so how do you set them up?

Thanks for the reply. I did indeed open cmd prompt as administrator and dragged the exe to the cmd prompt and pressed enter and then dragged the install.cmd to the cmd prompt and it runs giving the error that bspatch.exe is not a recognised as an internal or external command.

I'm on Win7 HP 64bit.

Edit: I've fixed it. Stopped being lazy by dragging the files to cmd prompt and navigated to the folder and typed in the commands and now it's worked. Why that makes a difference I have no idea as it shouldn't do but it did!

Yeah I was only able to drag the destination folder address to command prompt but had to manually type in the patch to get it to work. Glad it worked for you...

Bit of a random Q, but somewhat related..

Is it possible to unlock the maximum virtual CPU limit? I'd rather have access to 12 CPUS/Cores or more than just the maximum of 8 in total..

Try adding "cd /d %~dp0" to the install.cmd near the start:

net stop VMwareHostd
net stop VMAuthdService
cd /d %~dp0

Running as administrator defaults your working directory to C:\Windows\System32, using "cd /d %~dp0" changes the directory to the directory the script is running from.

Hello to all. I am newbie with this theme and i am having a problem i can´t understand. Every time i install the patch (sucesfully, without warnings or errors) virtualization technology is disabled (tested with securable.exe) . When i try to start a lion image, VMWorkstation obviously says that it can´t run because only software virtualization is enabled.

When i remove the patch, virtualization is enabled again (tested with securable.exe) but then i can´t run the image and workstation repeats the same error about hardware virtualization disabled.

When i reboot the system securable shows that vt is disabled.

No changes was made to the bios, of course.

The solution is to do a Recover System, before that the hardware virtualization remains disabled or not accesible from windows7/vmware workstation

Where is my concept error??? Can i know what are the changes that install.cmd makes in the system, it appears be only copying files but uninstall don´t repair it.

Excuse my poor english, i am not native. Thanks in advance.

I7 860 under W7 X64 Ultimate Spanish.

Good point I will update the install.cmd file and re-issue. I did rush getting it out of the door as work schedule means I am not going to have much time during October and November to work on this.

Hi Donk,
I'm holding my breath for a Linux update. Am I going to die before you release the patch for VM8 Linux ;) ?
More seriously, do you think you will get it out before your October-November back to "real" work period?

I'm running 11.04 (btrfs) + WS714 with 10.6;10.7,W7-64 and I'm planning to go for Linux Kernel 3.x for better btrfs.
I'm sure you have all the HW to test linux but in case you need testing I'd gladly help.
Thanks.

They are done but need to write a BASH script to install and remove. So it will be before the other work gets in the way.
