VMware – 12.5.7 Released – OK with Kernel 4.12, Still Needs GUI/GCC7 Workarounds..

VMware version 12.5.7 is out, and the release notes are here:  http://pubs.vmware.com/Release_Notes/en/workstation/12/workstation-1257-release-notes.html     As usual, not much actual detail, apart from “…some bug fixes and security updates.

This version compiles OK with Kernel 4.12 (tested with 4.12-rc6), but the runtime GUI and GCC7 workarounds mentioned in previous articles are still needed, for ‘newer’ distros, such as Fedora 26….

  1. Thank you for your efforts! Your site has been fantastic at helping me figure out VMWare Workstation issues on my Fedora workstation, well done.

  2. Can you confirm whether vmrun works for you?

    I’m on latest Fedora 26 with latest VMware workstation and while I can get it running using the above configuration/script, vmrun wont work. I keep getting ‘Error: The operation was canceled”.
