VMWare fusion build 41385

I signed up for the VMware public beta, and it gave me a serial for that version, and it claims it's invalid. Any idea why? I'm running on my iHack currently. Specs in sig, except I'm on 10.4.9 with 8.9.1.

I've the same issue and as me a lotofpeople... it looks like a bug of this Beta2. I also posted a ticket to VMWare support team but they have not replied yet.

 

 

P.s: I've the MBP in signature running under OSX 10.4.9.

or maybe the serial is already used by someone else......

Did you try to install it? There are none many serials... for beta testing, VMWare released 1 universal serial number.

 

Dax... we are speaking about this issue here too :thumbsup_anim:

Of course. And it is easy to use either BootCamp or MBR disk on VMware.

 

The only thing I'm waiting is Coherence...

hmmm mbr? how? it's 3 days i'm trying to mount my partition

There is a tool in the /Library/Application Support/VMware Fusion/ that creates the vmk file (a text file containing the geometry of the disk and size of the partition)

 

Right now I'm in the Powerbook, also out of town, when I get back I see the name of the tool and post it.

 

EDIT:

 

the name of the app is vmware-rawdiskCreator

 

in Terminal you type:

vmware-rawdiskCreator create diskdev part-number filename adaptertype

 

in my case since my XP disk is a third one I typed:

vmware-rawdiskCreator create /dev/disks2 1 ~/vmware/rawdisk ide

no problems on my hack with vmware beta 3, it's a lot faster too :(

lord, I hate you :rolleyes:

 

So, as any Italian rock-like boy :superman:, I installed it once again, OSX 10.4.9 clean installation, Italian layout for any setting and... "invalid serial" has popped out again. I opened a thread into the Official Beta forum but it seems a well-know bug never fixed and maybe a day to-fix. Really disappointed about that. Anyway what's about this Beta3? Support is still locked at DX 8.1?

I fixed the problem for me; I would also get kernel panic during install.

 

How I fixed it was, use this ;

 

http://kaspers.freeflux.net/blog/archive/2...rnel-panic.html

 

during install, then put the file there permanently;

 

fix all the permissions in the kexts directory of VMWare (/Library/App services/VMware/kexts)

sudo -s

chown -R root:wheel *.*

chmod 755 *.*

 

then run the boot.sh script in there, and enter serial through the liscence menu..

 

Sorry it is vague, recalling from memory.

 

Hope it helps.

This is a great piece of advice! I was having numerous problems running XP in a virtual machine with a virtual hard disk. While doing CPU and HDD intensive tasks the VM would eat all of my RAM (4GB) and when I tried to do anything in Leopard it would GSOD. After making a physical partition and linking it like this my VMs work like a charm! Lovely!

Serial # not accepted?

 

If serial fails to accept do the following:

 

Right click: VMWARE.APP -> SHOW CONTENTS

 

Browse to the location of the LICENSE directory.

 

Find the license file within the directory.

 

Edit it with: sudo nano

And add this line under License:

 

Serial = "INSE-RTSE-RIAL-HERE"

 

Press control+O to open save dialog.

 

Press enter to save.

 

Press control+X to close nano.

 

Notice Application is now working and registered.
