In Topic: OSX 8 in VMware 12 - Facetime won't open

02 December 2015 - 11:52 AM

I am also having problems with FaceTime in an El Capitan vm running in VMware Player 12. In my case, the app opens, but it doesn't accept my sign-in; the same sign-in as other OS X apps like Reminders and Notes, which work fine.

In Topic: Workstation 11/12, Player 7/12, Fusion 7/8 and ESXi 6 Mac OS X Unlocker 2

On a hunch, I uninstalled VMware Player (12) and reinstalled it from scratch. I then applied the 2.0.8 unlocker, and added the smc.version = "0" to the Yosemite VMX file. Everything worked, and I now have a working Yosemite vm on my Dell!

 

Might I suggest, Donk, that you add to the Readme of Unlocker 2.0.8 that if you had another version of Unlocker installed, you reinstall the VMware app, rather than uninstall the earlier version of Unlocker on the existing app.

 

Finally, to answer your question about the source of my installer, I re-downloaded Yosemite from the App Store one of my Macs (it was 10.10.1) and then converted it to a DMG using the CYI.tool.

 

Donk, I really appreciate that you took the time to answer my queries, and I hope that the bit about reinstalling Player will help someone else with a similar problem.

Unfortunately, the new unlocker didn't change anything; I can still run vms created from my Mac using the saved image, but as soon as I try rebooting them, they hang up. I also tried creating a Yosemite vm from an installer DMG file on the 2.0.8 patched version of VMware Player on my Dell, and it booted the DMG initially, but then hung up in the same place as before, as noted by the progress bar. Adding SMC.version = "0" to the VMX file had no noticable impact. Inspection of the vmware log file showed two interesting problems:

 

      UserLocale=NULL
      2015-11-30T08:58:48.571-05:00| vmx| I125: DictionaryLoad: Cannot open file "/usr/lib/vmware/settings": No such file or directory.

 

and

 

      2015-11-30T08:58:48.571-05:00| vmx| I125: DictionaryLoad: Cannot open file "/home/(username)/.vmware/config": No such file or directory.

 

There were other similar statements in the log, but both suggested that there should be two files that weren't present. So I went ahead and created those files, but unfortunately, it didn't seem to recognize them because I got the same errors. VMX and log files are attached.

[attachment=174835:vmware-1.log.txt][attachment=174836:OS X 10.10.vmx.txt]Fantastic; thanks Donk! I'm anxious to try this. Question - do I need to uninstall Unlocker 2.0.7 before installing Unlocker 2.0.8? Also, if I already have a virtual machine made up from my Mac based on Unlocker 2.0.7 and the iso tools from that version. Is there something further that I would have to do to that vm if I want to transfer it to a PC running Player 12 (fixed with Unlocker 2.0.8)? Thanks!

I have had no problem creating Mac OS X virtual machines in VMware Player (12) with unlocker 2.0.7, but only when I do it on a Mac. I created Snow Leopard, Mavericks and Yosemite vm's in Ubuntu (15.10). But when I run them on a Dell 7010, they run OK from the saved state, but stall after a reboot, even after adding smc.version = "0" to the VMX file. They hang up about a minute after the Apple Menu appears. And if I try to make the vm on the Dell (again running Ubuntu 15.10), the installer starts up but freezes about 1/4 of the way.  Is there something else I have to do to the VMX file to get it to pass the "Mac test" and start up on the Dell PC? Does it matter that I am using Linux on the Dell instead of Windows?
