Graphics problem after upgrade 15 to 16

This post was originally published on this site

I have several Windows 7 x86 guest machines, running on a Windows 10 x64 host with VMware Workstation 15. Today I decided to give VMware 16 a try. After installing VMware 16, virtual machines are totally unusable, severe graphic issues arise just after power on, all screen components and pixels begin to mess randomly. I hardly achieved to upgrade VMware tools on one of the machines through crazy random clicking on the screen, and after that the VM works perfectly. So is feels like VMware 16 is not compatible with VMware tools 15 Windows 7 graphic driver – but it seems I am the only one on the forum suffering this so it’s obviously not that simple.

 

I have snapshots so I can go back to the previous state in order to perform any check you can recommend me.
