  1. I used Donk's updated script - version 1.0.0. Based on the values that were printed by the "echo" statements, I believe he has extracted the correct strings for the install path & location of the dll. That is why I suspected there was something amiss in the way that the exe read those. Also, in another thread I noticed that another user had a similar problem; and yet another user noticed that the drive letter was hard coded to 'c:'. All this points to a glitch in the argument handling. Hope that helps. Jake
  2. My host is: Windows XP, VMware Player 3.1.4, Intel i3 processor. I'm trying to run the 'unlocker' script, but at the step where the EXE runs, I get a 'usage' error. Here is the trace: </P> <P>VMware Mac OS X Patcher 1.0.0 ============================= Core=VMware Player InstallPath=C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Player\ VMXPath=C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Player\ UIPath=C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Player\vmwarebase.dll</P> <P>The VMware Authorization Service service was stopped successfully.</P> <P> The VMware USB Arbitration Service service was stopped successfully.</P> <P>Mac OS X guest unlocker for VMware, version 7</P> <P>Usage: C:\Scripts\Unlocker\windows_32.exe [<vmx dir> <ui path>] Where <vmx dir> defaults to C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Workstation and <ui path> defaults to C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Workstation\vmwarebase.dll</P> <P> Anyone else had this issue? Jake I found a work-around in another thread. If you temporarily rename the "VMware Player" directory to "VMware Workstation", then run the EXE without arguments, it works as expected; then rename the directory back to what it was. Probably the program doesn't quite handle the optional arguments on the command line. Jake Turns out I spoke too soon. The program goes one step further, but now I get this error: C:\Scripts\Unlocker>windows_32 Mac OS X guest unlocker for VMware, version 7 Directory C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Workstation: File vmware-vmx.exe: Unlocking Mac OS X guest on non-Mac host ... Unlocking Mac OS X Client guest (method 0) ... File vmware-vmx-debug.exe: Missing file. File vmware-vmx-stats.exe: Missing file. File C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Workstation\vmwarebase.dll: Error opening file. Any clues on that one? Jake Finally got it to work. If you get the "Error opening file" message, double check that HQTRAY.EXE is still stopped. Jake
