  1. I attached it to this post. I basically replaced all traces of "ElCapitan" / "El Capitan" with "Sierra" while changing the .app path to "Install\ macOS\ Sierra.app." CSI.tool.txt
  2. Just installed the macOS Sierra GM build using your post. No issues whatsoever. Using Workstation 12. Just had to modify the DMG creation script to use Install macOS Sierra.app.

    How to shrink OS X .vmdk

    To free up space within the guest, you'd have to delete content from within the VM.
  4. You were right -- it did have to do with not having enough free space on the VMDK's drive. I moved my VMDK to a larger drive, ran the command, and it shrunk the VMDK just fine. From 39.3GB to 33.7GB. c:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Workstation>vmware-vdiskmanager.exe -k "s:\OS X 10.10 Yosemite.vmdk" VixDiskLib: Invalid configuration file parameter. Failed to read configuration file. Shrink: 100% done. Shrink completed successfully.
  5. I've already been replying to that thread .
  6. In that case, it must not be cleaning properly because the drive the VMDK is on (an SSD) doesn't have enough free space to properly complete? I'll transfer it to my HDD sometime and try it out.

    How to shrink OS X .vmdk

    I did add a few lines over the original VMX from a long time ago, but I don't think they'd prevent vmware-vdiskmanager from working properly. Here's my current VMX: http://pastebin.com/SC1dC616

    no, it's actually in my user folder, not within Documents.

    What does your Command Prompt output look like? Yes, the command within OS X was correct. http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/292301-vmware-workstation-how-to-compresscleanup-vmdk/?do=findComment&comment=1949907used to work for me prior to Yosemite.

    How to shrink OS X .vmdk

    Ever since Yosemite came out, this has never worked for me. Same results now with El Capitan.
  11. Edit: Never mind. I reset the VM, and it went into the opening installer/setup part.
  12. I decided to upgrade my perfectly-working Yosemite installation to El Capitan by just downloading El Cap from the App Store app and running the installer. VMware Workstation 11 has been stuck here for roughly 45 minutes: Is my installation dead? I don't mind installing from scratch, since I only use iMessage and Tweetbot in the VM.

    Status of Unlocker 2.0

    What WS11 lag are you referring to? My Yosemite VM in WS11 has 1GB RAM and it performs rather well. May hold off on the WS12 upgrade because I'm not sure if it's even beneficial.
  14. That would be a decent alternative -- thanks.
