VMware : Could not get vmci driver version

I recently faced one issue.  While starting my VM in VMware workstation 12 in Windows 10, I got the following error :



You can resolve it as follows :

-> Go to VM directory, i.e., folder in which you have saved VM disk images.
-> Open directory of the VM that you want to start
-> Open .vmx file in editor – VMware virtual machine configuration (.vmx) of that VM
-> Change the parameter :

vmci0.present = "TRUE"
vmci0.present = "FALSE"

-> Save the file
-> Now open the VM, it should work.


Note : When I booted the VM, networking was not functioning properly. So I had to reset the network to defaults, after which my networking started to work properly. You can do so as following :

-> Open “Virtual Network Editor”.

-> Select “Change Settings”

-> Select “Restore Defaults”


But I am not sure that you would also face network issue. If you do face network issue, please make sure that you know what you are doing. As resetting the network would remove all the modification done to VMware network. Don’t reset it to defaults, unless you know what you are doing.
