VMWare Fusion Professional Version 12.0

  when i install the vm fusion12 for using win8.1 Enterpeise 64-bit (Build 9600) .

I’ve seen in Activity Monitor that a process “vmware-vmx” is hanging a lot of CPU (about 100-300% when i’m in MacOS not use the virtual machine)and high heat with my Mac,

but when i swap to win8 OS in fusion cpu usage become normal(about 20% – 60%).

I got a Windows 8 Enterprise VM with dedicated/allocated 4 cores and 4GB RAM. I power-on the virtual machine and min later the fans are running very fast and Activity Monitor shows that vmware-vmx is using +100% CPU.

And I tried the method in the picture below,but no work for me ,is there any other solution?

Help please!
