No network connection with VMware Player? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,


    Would like some advice please,


    I have been using vmware player for just a few weeks and have had no problem with network connection up until last week when I did some changes (Windows re-activation and removals using 'Hijack This'.  I have obviously deleted lots of stuff I am not suppose to delete as I have had nothing but pc problems ever since.


    My host machine is Windows XP SP3

    Guest OS is Scientific Linux


    When I go to verify which processes are running it only shows vmnat.exe running but not vmnetdhcp.exe so I try to see if I can install vmnetdhcp.exe but get the pop-up window message "DllRegisterServer entry point was not found".


    I am new to all of this and certainly not tech savvy so if someone would be kind enough to suggestion where I should go from here that will be much appreciated thanks.....

  • Uninstall VMWare Player and then reinstall it.

  • For issues with VMWare Player, try the VMWare support site.
