VMWare/Windows 8.1 issue

Just hit the recent Windows 8.1 Update (KB2995388) issue


Go to Control Panel -> Programs -> Programs and Features, then select View installed updates at the top left corner.

Uninstall KB2995388


wmic qfe list | findstr "KB2995388"

If this does not fix it

Go to C:\ProgramData\VMware\VMware Workstation

Edit config.ini, add the line

vmmon.disableHostParameters = “TRUE”

Copy the file to ‘%AppData%\VMWare’.
