Resolved Issues

  • The VMware Tools kernel extensions can't be launched on a virtual machine with older macOS versions.

    In a virtual machine running macOS version 10.9 to 10.12, after installing VMware Tools, it's kernel extensions cannot be launched. As a result, VMware Tools functionality is limited.

    This issue is now resolved.

  • The remote virtual machine's keyboard and mouse input is unresponsive after being left idle for a while.

    The keyboard and mouse interactions with a remote virtual machine located on ESXi Server or vCenter Server work well after VMware Fusion initially establishes connection. However the remote virtual machine doesn't respond to keyboard and mouse input after being left idle for a while.

    This issue is now resolved.
