    Default getting error when trying to install windows7 ultimate 64 bit on vmware workstation9

    Sir I have installed freshly opensuse12.2 X86-64 on AMD FX 4100 machine then installed vmware workstation9 successfully. I am able to run workstation successfully. I created virtual machine windows7 ultimate 64 bit but when I start virtual machine I am getting the following error and stopping further.

    Version mismatch with vmci driver: expecting 11.0, got 10.0.
    Module DevicePowerOn power on failed.
    Failed to start the virtual machine.

    I have followed the same procedure in fedora15 X86-64 and I have successfully installed the above virtual machine and I have ran it.

    Please help me to successfully install windows7 ultimate 64 bit on vmware workstation9.

    Regards,
    Rupesh.

    Having monitored your seemingly endless progression of problems,
    I cannot help but think your OpenSuSE installation media has a problem.
    Did you run the media check before installing? You might want to start
    over, there is no reason for these bizarre issues you are seeing. If you are
    working over a poor internet connecting it is possible that your OS media
    is corrupted or the VMware installer files.

    I just installed Workstation 9 on OS 12.2 x64 twice and I have not seen any
    of the issues you are running across.

    This is in the host or in the guest?

    This is a question you should ask the VMware forums membership for help
    with. You have VMware installed on openSUSE fine, now you're having
    trouble with the guest - and that's really beyond the purpose of this
    forum.

    A quick Google suggests VMCI is a relatively new (2 yrs old) <optional> technology.

    You can try disabling as this guy did
    You have an incorrect version of driver “vmci.sys” | My Technical Notes

    More info on what VMCI is

    Apparently this is a very common problem. Did you update your system and VMware after you installed your new app(highly recommended, possible cause of your version mis-match)?
