VMware workstation and Mac OS X access violation error

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys


I followed this tutorial to install Mac OS X on my laptop vmware workstation 8.0.1 build-528992 and received the error:


VMware Workstation unrecoverable error: (vmx)


Exception 0xc0000005 (access violation) has occurred.


A log file is available in "C:\downloads\Mac OS X Lion 10.7.3 VMware Image\Mac OS X Lion 10.7.3 VMware Image\Mac OS X Lion\vmware.log". A core file is available in "C:\downloads\Mac OS X Lion 10.7.3 VMware Image\Mac OS X Lion 10.7.3 VMware Image\Mac OS X Lion\vmware-vmx-8008.dmp". You can request support and include the contents of the log file and the core file.


To collect data to submit to VMware support, choose "Collect Support Data" from the Help menu.


You can also run the "vm-support" script in the Workstation folder directly.


We will respond on the basis of your support entitlement.


also see the attachment.

After I click 'OK' button windows shows a window that VMware Workstation VMX has stpped working so I close the window and another window pops up from Workstation

saying that "Cannot find a valid peer process to connect to."

Everythin happens while I try to start the machine.


I have Lenovo W520 with virtualization enabled in BIOS

also while using vmware unlocker I run it with administrator privileges.


I dunno what I am doing wrong any help appreciated
