  1. Try configuring the port as USB 2.0 instead of 3.0
  2. Yes, works fine. Make sure you aren't trying to use USB 3.0

    Compress macOS VMDK

    I doubt you will defrag the file system. This will help recover and compress unused space. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/308367-how-to-shrink-os-x-vmdk/
  4. Nope, that didn't fix it. Don't use v10 tools in WSv12...
  5. They’ve already released a new set of tools (10.01). Perhaps they found and fixed issues.
  6. Windows uses UAC which means that even as a user in the Admin group, you aren't running programs with administrative rights. If you right click the program and select "Run as Administrator", then it is running with administrative rights.
  7. Running from administrator account is not the same as running with admin privileges.
  8. Ty again Zenith. I extracted the package and used Pacifist to force install the newest kext. I'll post back if I notice a difference.
  9. Good to know, thanks Zenith. Is there anything that needs to be done other than installing new tools? For me it seems like graphics have actually degraded over last 2 or 3 tool releases...
  10. Possible mount residue. No way for me to check anymore. I already deleted that VM in favor of my new Sierra build. I don't think I did a fresh reboot as MSoK advised. Thanks to both!
  11. Ty shela. However, using your tool, it kept saying that it couldn't mount the Install dmg for some reason. Not sure why it was failing, so I just modified the old CECI tool to extract the bootable Sierra dmg.
  12. I think he was answering that the option to select the type of VM as OS12 in the options is only available in 12.5
  13. In Finder, go to /Library/Application Support/VMware Tools/. Run Uninstall VMware Tools, but do not actually uninstall. On the menu bar, select Uninstall VMware Tools->About Uninstall VMware Tools. The version will show up in the About dialog.
