Completely removd VMWare Workstaition 11, deleted vmware folder, ran ccleaner, rebooted.

Installed VMWare 11 to default dir c:\program files x86\vmware

Installed Python 2.7.to c:\program files x86\vmware\phython

Ran the win-install.cmd to path vmware

Rebooted

 

When trying to launch OS X 10.10 Yosemite for vmware for Windows 8.1 x64, it stalls half way though the launch to the desktop.

 

After inspecting the console window, it cannot find python.  The readme states "The python.exe file must be on the executable PATH. If it is not on PATH please
edit win-install.cmd to point to the installation path", what do i change in the win-install.cmd to reflect the path that python has been installed to ?  I'm not a programmer, and not sure what to change/edit in the .cmd file.

 

 

Thanks very much for releasing this update. Will report back once it's working.

The code requires Python 2.7 to work. Most Linux distros and OS X ship with a compatible Python interpreter and should work without requiring any additional software.

 

Would you expect a Python wrapper such as py2exe to work?  Maybe somebody can confirm if they've had success with this method...

When you install the Python , you can chose the "Entire feature will be installed on local hard driver" in "Add python.exe to Path " . And root your computer . the Python will be OK .

You have two options:

 

1) Modify win-install.cmd to point to your Python installation - you must edit Line 40 where it says "python.exe vmxsmc.py" to point to the location that you installed Python on your system:

(e.g. change the line to "path\to\python.exe vmxsmc.py")

 

2) Edit Windows' PATH environment variable to include your Python installation:

Right click on My Computer / This PC -> Properties -> Advanced System Settings -> Environment Variables... -> find "Path" in the top pane and click Edit... -> add the path to python.exe where you installed it on your system, separated from the existing paths by a semicolon. (e.g. "C:\path\to\python\installation\") - but only to the folder containing the executable, don't add python.exe itself to the path.

I will be looking at this next. There was a decision to release it as-is now to allow some degree of functionality to be available to those who want it. The thread is in this forum on the unlocker status.

The python version error , you should used the version 2.7.* , not is 3.*

It is stop in Boot Manager .

I was used the *.dmg .

Of course, the encode issue in Python 3. Again something for next release to fix. Hopefully will sort out fixes quickly.

Yeap. I got it on Arch Linux where Python defaults 3.4.2 Changing the install script from "python" to "python2" did the trick.

Hey , I meet a  problem about , the unsuccessful.tual SCSI CDROM Drive (0.0) . And the next the VM will going in the Boot Manager .

An the end , I came the Boot Manager ->EFI Internal Shell , I saw blk0 and blk1 is (null) .

What should I do ?

At first I like to thank you for a great Job. I'm only an interested user, not a programmer. This may explain my question. I have a WS11 running on Windows 8.1. I installed python 2.7. The path to python now is

 

C:\Program Files (x86)\Python27\python.exe

 

In the next step I tried to change the path in the win-install.cmd to C:\Program Files (x86)\Python27\

 

When I start the win-install.cmd I always see something like "the command C.\Program is wrong written..."

 

What is my failure?

Thanks God we have you to play with MacOSX on Windows or Linux.

 

Edit: v2.0.1 is missing the Darwin.iso file :(

 Oops  - messed up the permissions and didn't compress correctly. I will upload a 2.0.2 later today. Can't do it at the moment as I am not at home.

How can I change the VRAM , it is always is 128M ? Maybe it is great number on the Old Mac version , but in  Yosemite it is not enough .

So , what should I do Donk ?

 

I don't know what can be done, this is not something the unlocker can fix. I think it is hard coded limit on the VMware SVGA2 virtual GPU. Suggest you start a new topic to dicuss this with others.

Hi, I had the python and unlocker 2 up and working but I face another problem:
