OSX Sierra and VMware Fusion – Internal Error

I wanted to share my quick experience to upon my upgrade to OSX Sierra. Did the plunge a little while ago and wanted to share a bit of my experience. I came across an issue with the application. Seemed perfectly fine, but the trouble came after trying to boot VMs. Upon trying to boot, I was presented with an error labelled “Internal Error”.

Upon looking through the VMware forum, I came across a workaround which required opening VMware Fusion through the terminal. Not the best solution since not all the passthrough was working, but a good workaround.

 cd /Applications/VMware\ Fusion.app/Contents/MacOS; ./VMware\ Fusion"

This has seemed to work great for me. Reports of updating VMware Fusion to the latest version have worked on my personal machine.

  1. This is the typical post you read after when you scour the web looking for a solution and the simplest thing that you say to yourself cannot possibly work makes everything better for no apparent reason.

    Thanks so much!

  2. I tried this. I had to remove the quote at end of command line (“).

    I launched my Windows VM, and my laptop rebooted.
    This happened twice.
    Any help is appreciated.
