    I need to create a virtual machine with VMvare Workstation 6.5.5 under FreeBSD 64 bit.

    During the running i become this message error:

    *** VMware Workstation internal monitor error ***

    Somebody has a idea to resolve this problem. I have no license for an other VMvare workstation version.

  • 1.  This forum is for support for virtualized pfSense.  We can't help you with your VMware Workstation problems.

    2.  Your version is very old and unsupported.  Try the free VMware Player or VirtualBox or client Hyper-V.

    Workstation 6.5.5 is from what like 2010, its sure and the hell is not going to support freebsd 10.1, etc.. Esxi didn't even support it until 5.5u2, etc..

    Use a free hypervisor vs something that is from 2010 that is for freaking sure… Or buy a current version of workstation..

  • I know its also not technically relevant, but for anyone looking at using vmware workstation in the future should be aware of this: http://blog.chipx86.com/2016/01/26/a-tribute-to-vmware-workstation-fusion-and-hosted-ui/
