Same issue on VMWare Fusion 2.0.8

In reply to: VMWARE fusion v.3 does not work with OSx 10.7.4

My existing VMs won't run and I can't create a new VM.

I get the same three errors.

OSX 10.7.4, 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

I have the exact same issue. Fusion will not work

In reply to: Same issue on VMWare Fusion 2.0.8

I am using Fusion 2.0.8 also. After updating to OSX 10.7.4 I got the same 3 error messages. I read on the VM Fusion site that it was a memory error, so I switched out my RAM memory chips. No help. Luckily I had a backup and recovered back to my previous OSX version. Now I will wait for the real solution for the Fusion incompatibility before I update to OSX 10.7.4.

Seems it will be a very long wait.

Please ask VMWare if they are issuing updates for this older version.

VMware fusion works with OS X 10.7

In reply to: Seems it will be a very long wait.

Just download VM Fusion to V. 3.1.4 and install it. All is then OK.

Thanks for this.

Let's hope they get the message to move up a version.
