Same issue on VMWare Fusion 2.0.8

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

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

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.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
