On a Windows host system, you can run the support script from the Windows command prompt to collect support data from the local host system.



  1. Open a command prompt on the Windows host system and change to the VMware Workstation directory.
    For example: cd C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware Workstation
  2. Run the support script.
    cscript vm-support.vbs
    The script displays the name of the directory where it stores its output.
  3. Use a file compression utility to compress the script output directory.
  4. Include the zip file of the script output directory with your support request.
  5. If you are reporting a problem that occurred during Workstation Pro installation, include the installation log file (VMInst.log) with your support request.
    The installation log file is located in the Temp directory. On a Windows host, the default location is C:\Documents and Settings\ username \Local Settings\temp.
