For now I'll stay on 11.5.3, but I'll have to forgo the exciting new container stuff :-(, If there's no "Battery Life" drop down menu on the Display settings, then instead please power off the VM, manually edit the .vmx file, modifying the option mks.forceDiscreteGPU="TRUE" to mks.forceDiscreteGPU="FALSE". It will take 2 – 3 seconds to start the VMware Authorization Service. After spending more time analyzing the vmware.log provided, I can almost bet that if you: leave 3D enabled, but choose "Don't Use High Performance Graphics" you should be able to avoid this. If you want a better, more secure fix, check out: https://superuser.com/questions/1133065/unable-to-write-to-tmp-directory-in-macos-unable-to-correct-permissions-oper  #19 as I think it's the supported mechanism. Or does the VM still pick the higher performance graphics card? You can not post a blank message. We have been testing with macOS 10.15.5 builds, but we don't have all Macs, and particular, not this exact one. How to resolve this? check!! VMware Workstation Transport (VMDB) Error -44: Message. While upgrading some Cisco UCS B200 M3 Servers from vSphere 6.0 to 6.5, I ran into an error that I could not figure out. Reinstalling Fusion 11.5.5 made no difference, the VM will not start (reports the Transport VMDB error, and the MKS crash previously mentioned) unless I disable 3D Acceleration. Copyright © 2017 VMware, Inc. All rights reserved. You will be able to start the virtual machine. !In my case, a simple W9 reinstall, and host restart solved the issue. I have several dual GPU systems, and neither reproduces the issue. The service “VMware Authorization Service” should be as “Stopped” state. I use it myself. Open CMD prompt as Admin rights and type services.msc. We don't fully understand the problem as we haven't been able to reproduce it ourselves in-house so far, but I don't think it's a coincidence that only systems without dual GPUs seems affected. Copyright © 2017 VMware, Inc. All rights reserved. *Posts on this site may contain affiliated links*. So rest assured that you should not experience any performance degradation, at least not until you move/copy the VM onto a dual-GPU mac. Only suggestion that actually worked. Now, scroll down and find out the service called “VMware Authorization Service “. Reinstalling Fusion 11.5.5 made no difference, the VM will not start (reports the Transport VMDB error, and the MKS crash previously mentioned) unless I disable 3D Acceleration.

Free edition Version 6.5.0 on Dell Poweredge R630, his solutions was " I was able to download 11.5.3 through the downloads link for Fusion, reinstalling that version fixed my problem and I was able to run a VM with 3D Acceleration enabled. Is there an 11.5.4 download? Keep sharing more. That should enable you to enable 3D acceleration without hitting the issue.

It will pop-up an another new window. I believe your iMac doesn't have an Integrated GPU, so it won't make a difference in performance, but will avoid some complexity in choosing/forcing the high performance graphics which might be playing a role here.

Same error, but I'm running Fusion 11.5 on 10.15.5 OSx Catalina. Anyway fixed by changing the /tmp file permission according to the below reply from another thread. Tried to upgrade to 10.1.6 but the upgrade failed in the middle. Works fine if I disable 3D graphics. So far this issue has only been reported on iMacs without any integrated GPU: at least both the original and your report are. Please type your message and try again. This is exceedingly helpful information, very good work. So no matter what GPU selection mode is chosen, one will invariably get the discrete GPU, as it's the only one available. After poking around for awhile, I decided to turn to the VMware community, where I most mostly seeing this error with people using Workstation and Fusion products, but there wasn’t much going on with ESXi environments. I'm seeing a similar crash from MKS, having just upgraded to both Catalina 10.15.5 and Fusion 11.5.5 this weekend : 2020-06-01T08:09:16.685-05:00| vmx| I005: MKS PowerOn, 2020-06-01T08:09:16.733-05:00| mks| I005: VTHREAD 123145507250176 "mks" tid 8564, 2020-06-01T08:09:16.733-05:00| mks| I005: MKS thread is alive. Memory as well as it requires running different foundation applications to be running persistently with the goal that clients can show signs of improvement experience. I tried the listed suggestions, but wouldn't see the VMWare Fusion entry on Security & Privacy. VMware needs a considerable measure of memory use to run easily. Thank you so much. I'm assuming that I could in theory go back to that version? I encountered the above error and I have tried reinstalling twice with fresh download each time.

I would love to hear from someone who figured out the root cause and workaround. Yes, manually editing .vmx file works.
