VMware VMCI problem

TurnToJPG -->

Edit the file /etc/init.d/vmware with your favorite text editor, change the definition:

	vmwareLoadModule "$mod"

Change this line to

	vmwareLoadModule "$vmci"

Then Navigate to the other function vmwareLoadModule “$mod” Under the function definition.

	vmwareLoadModule "$mod"

Change this line to

	vmwareLoadModule "$vsock"

Now we need to find the corresponding Module Unload functions Under the Function vmwareStopVmci() Change

	vmwareUnloadModule "${mod}" 


	vmwareUnloadModule "${vmci}"

Under the function vmwareStopVsock() Change

	vmwareUnloadModule "$mod"  


	vmwareUnloadModule "$vsock"

Once done I would suggest reboot your machine although not necessary.
Post that run sudo /etc/init.d/vmware start

	Starting VMware services:
	   Virtual machine monitor                                             done
	   Virtual machine communication interface                             done
	   VM communication interface socket family                            done
	   Blocking file system                                                done
	   Virtual ethernet                                                    done
	   VMware Authentication Daemon                                        done
	   Shared Memory Available                                             done

and now you can see vmware workstation works fine and you are able to power on your virtual machines, and connect to network fine.
