VMWARE TIPS & TRICKS

 

How to fix “VMware Workstation and Device/Credential Guard are not compatible. VMware Workstation can be run after disabling Device/Credential Guard. ” error might be familiar with the VMware workstation users

    • DISABLE / UNINSTALL HYPER-V ROLE

    • DISABLE DEVICE/CREDENTIAL GUARD IN LOCAL GROUP POLICY

I had to disable the Device/Credential Guard in my local group policy and I opened a “run” prompt by pressing Win Key + R and typed ” gpedit.msc ” to open the local group policy editor. Once it opened up the Local group policy editor, navigate to ” Local Computer Policy > Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Device Guard ” and open the ” Turn on Virtualization Based Security ” setting by double click on it.

    • RUN COMMAND

Opened a Command Prompt elevating the “Administrative Privileges” and run the below piece of command

mountvol X: /s
copy %WINDIR%System32SecConfig.efi X:EFIMicrosoftBootSecConfig.efi /Y
bcdedit /create {0cb3b571-2f2e-4343-a879-d86a476d7215} /d “DebugTool” /application osloader
bcdedit /set {0cb3b571-2f2e-4343-a879-d86a476d7215} path “EFIMicrosoftBootSecConfig.efi”
bcdedit /set {bootmgr} bootsequence {0cb3b571-2f2e-4343-a879-d86a476d7215}
bcdedit /set {0cb3b571-2f2e-4343-a879-d86a476d7215} loadoptions DISABLE-LSA-ISO,DISABLE-VBS
