Virtual machine won’t start when enhanced keyboard is set to “Required” in Workstation 16

This post was originally published on this site

Virtual machines with the enhanced keyboard setting under options and general set to “Required” refuses to start, I have to kill vmware-wmx.exe to stop the VM. The virtual machines start fine when the setting is set to “Use if available (recommended)” and the enhanced keyboard works (eg. can use Alt+Ctrl+Del inside VM). I’m guessing this is some sort of bug in 16, reinstalling VMware Workstation did not fix the problem!
