Known Issues


  • VMware Remote Console and VMware Workstation cannot be installed on the same computer.

    Because VMware Remote Console and VMware Workstation share some components in common, it is not possible to install both on the same Linux machine.



  • Some device operations are not supported on macOS.

    When you access virtual machines using the VMware Remote Console macOS client, you cannot perform certain device operations. For example, you cannot add new devices or display sound card settings. These specific operations are present in the documentation.


  • The VMware Remote Console macOS App Store client may be slow when performing passthrough on a mass storage device.

    When a mounted mass storage device passes through a remote virtual machine, the VMware Remote Console macOS client may freeze for several seconds.

    Manually unmount the mass storage device from the host operating system before initiating passthrough in VMware Remote Console.

Resolved Issues

  • VMRC fails to connect through some HTTP proxies.

    VMRC fails to establish a console connection when some HTTP proxy servers are used as an intermediary.

    This issue is now fixed.
