Thanks to all of you in the community that contributed to this effort and commented on this blog post.
Final Word, i guess someone has to take the risk and patch their systems to the latest versions first, especially as these were security patches with a critical severity.
In the meantime, the workaround is fine.Ive logged a support call with VMware to address this problem.But Ive got a workaround.Dll in the vmtools package. .Procedure, click, start, control Panel.This update just in from VMware Support.GSS and Engineering are mapping the ESX and vmtools update versions to the deploypkg.This package was approved as a trusted package on 7/29/2017.
This seems to be similar to what other of you have also reported.
Thanks to VMware Support for getting to this stage very quickly. .
VMware KB Article 2142982 has now been published.If you don't mind, attach the vmware.When prompted, click, yes to restart Windows.I have been able to successfully clone from a new VM Image smurfs village game for laptop that has had a fresh install of Windows 2008 R2 and VMware Tools without the vmci / NSX Guest Introspection Driver, or where VMware Tools was installed twice / installed and repaired.Does it make any difference if the Display Setting 3D Accelerated graphics is checked/unchecked with the svga 3D driver installed?As to why it does not happen for Windows 7/8 VMs that you have, if these VMs have been created using a version earlier than 12, it won't be trying to support DX10 within the VM as opposed to this newly created Windows.Yes to start uninstalling the VMware Tools.Updated After further testing I have narrowed down the problem area to new installs where the complete option is selected, and any upgrades where the complete options was previously selected, or where the vmci / NSX Guest Introspection Driver is included.If this is a new package, it should have results within a day or two.This post first appeared on the Long White Virtual Clouds blog. .
