I followed your instructions fully. Ensured virtual CPU is functional. Set CPU to 4 and Memory to 4. Running workstation 11.1.3. Starts to load but loading bar is still only 1/2 done after 30 minutes. Any suggestions?


I had the error, which i Fixed by editing the file and adding the code in step five.. but now i got another error. “Failed to lock the file” “Cannot open the dick C:……..” or one of the snapshot disks it depends on.


Works fine on Workstation PRO 12 / HP Probook 450 G1. THanks 😉
