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 app installation fails stating "Cannot get library dependencies - Fail to load the library. /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libsecret-1.so.0: undefined symbol: g_task_set_name".

    This issue is observed only in Ubuntu 22.04 with KDE. If the cayman_libsecret is compiled with different glib version, there are a few undefined symbols error reported when installing VMRC. So the dependency lib was added to the linux installer package of VMRC.

Security Issues

  • Openssl has been updated from 1.1.1u to 3.0.10.

  • Cayman_libtiff version has been updated from 4.1.0 to 4.5.1.

  • Curl has been updated to 8.3.
