Resolved Issues

  • On a macOS High Sierra 10.13 host, the Caps Lock key always turns on after you switch from a virtual machine to the host

    On a macOS High Sierra 10.13 host, after you press the Caps Lock key to turn the feature off on the host, grabbing input within a running virtual machine and switching back to the host automatically turns on the Caps Lock key on the host. This issue does not occur if the machine is installed with a macOS version earlier than High Sierra 10.13.

    This issue is resolved.

  • A Windows virtual machine crashes after you connect an iLOK USB key

    When you connect an iLOK USB key to a Windows virtual machine, the virtual machine immediately crashes.

    This issue is resolved.

  • When you put a macOS virtual machine hosted on remote a ESXi server into Full Screen view, the virtual machine display size decreases

    When you use Fusion to run a macOS virtual machine on a remote ESXi server, if the virtual machine is in Single Window view, the correct resolution is used inside of the guest operating system. However if you switch the virtual machine to Full Screen view, the virtual machine unexpectedly switches to high DPI resolution, which results in a smaller display size.

    This issue is resolved with VMware Tools 10.2.5 installed on the virtual machine.

  • You cannot use the Fusion interface to clean up an encrypted Windows virtual machine

    The Clean Up Virtual Machine button in the General Settings dialog box is disabled for encrypted Windows virtual machines. This limitation prevents you from selecting the option and reclaiming disk space from the virtual machine.

    This issue is resolved.

  • The Network Connection drop-down menu of a remote virtual machine cannot display the name of the distributed virtual switch port group

    When the remote virtual machine is configured to connect to a distributed virtual switch, the Network Connection drop-down menu cannot obtain the name of the distributed switch port group and therefore shows a blank entry item.

    This issue is resolved.
