|I am trying for days to enable under:
"Edit --> Preferences --> Shared VMs --> "Enable virtual machine sharing..."
to activate the checkbox.
It fails all the time but unfortunately the logfiles are empty, just on the console I get
"rc-service: service `vmware-workstation-server' does not exist"
in addition the "proxy.xml" file is empty.
I am using Vmware11.2 on my workstation (layman) but VMware Workstation 10 on my notebook (gentoo).
Both show the same behaviour on different kernel. Starting virtual machines out of the Workstations UI is without problems and quick/stable with different OS (winNT, win7, win 8.1 and also win10)
Can somebody check, if activation is possible on other machines, please.
Other hints are welcome, the hostd logs shows only the empty proxy.xml file.
After days and nights I really need help on this and the use of my virtual machines by remote is required by my job
Thanks for a hint if the problem is in front of the monitor or a real bug.
