Open the virtual machine as follows:

Unable to open kernel device '\ \. [global \ \ vmx86': the system could not find the specified file. Do you want to reboot after installing vmware workstation?

This is because the virtual machine was not shut down normally and the virtual machine service was not opened successfully

Solution: CMD can execute the following commands in turn( Remember to use the administrator Permission to open CMD and execute again~

net start vmci

net start vmx86

net start VMnetuserif

Then set these services to boot

For win10, execute this:

sc config vmci start= auto

sc config vmx86 start= auto

sc config VMnetuserif start= auto

Win7 system is slightly different:

sc config vmci=auto

sc config vmx86=auto

sc config VMnetuserif=auto



If life is just like the first sight, what is the sad autumn wind painting fan
