vmware-resolutionSet "Unable to find the service" on Mojave

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I've been trying to get my resolution scaled up from 1024x768, and have tried the uninstall-and-reinstallation of VMware Tools to no avail.

 

/Library/Application\ Support/VMware\ Tools/vmware-resolutionSet 1920 1080
Unable to find the service.

 

What am I doing wrong?

I'm on Mojave 10.14.5, and VMware Tools version 10.3.10.10540 (build-12406962) which should be the latest.

I'm having the same issue. Anyone have some advice?

 

Edit: I got it! Just reinstall the VMWare Tools and it'll work

@TANGCLA -

What is your VMware Workstation (or Fusion) version, please?

EDIT: Also, which Host OS? Such as Windows 7, 8/8.1, 10/etc?

Tried this, did not work for me. Tried reinstalling over the top as well as uninstall-reinstall.

Okay, what Hardware/VMware Workstation Level is your VM set to?

Such as 10, 12, 15?

Did you do any changes to the VMX file to make the macOS VM boot?

Is this a CLEAN install VM, or did you upgrade an older macOS VM to Mojave?

 

Try upping resolution with this tool:

https://github.com/MarLoe/VMware.PreferencePane/releases/tag/v1.7.1

 

It is not automatic but works well to change resolution manually.

 

Also, Workstation 15, but which one? Such as 15.0.1, 15.0.3, 15.1/etc? (15.1 is latest currently I believe.)

How do I check the hardware level? This was a clean install of Mojave.

The tool does not work, it simply relies on the VMware Tools to perform the same task (and as a result the error message received is the same).

I'm on VMware Workstation 15.1.0.
