Workstation Player 16 Bugs

This post was originally published on this site

I was using the previous Player version to virtualize Ubuntu on my Windows machine and after the update to version 16 it stopped working.

My Windows 10 OS is licensed.


This is the message that the system shows:

You are running this virtual machine with side channel mitigations enabled. Side channel mitigations provide enhanced security but also lower performance. To disable mitigations, change the side channel mitigations setting in the advanced panel of the virtual machine settings. Refer to VMware KB article 79832 at for more details.


Virtualized AMD-V/RVI is not supported on this platform.

Continue without virtualized AMD-V/RVI?

I’ve seen similar threads closed and without an answer here in the community.


Does someone know how to solve it?
