I’m trying to help a client with an issue that cropped up after upgrading from High Sierra to Mojave. She had a previously-working version of VMware Fusion (version 7.x), and while it opened in Mojave, it threw a cryptic error regarding a kernel extension called vmmon.kext. We went through a lot of crazy recommended fixes, including command line stuff that had to be done via Recovery Mode, and none of it worked.
Then I suggested she download a trial of Parallels Desktop, to see if that worked. It does essentially the same thing. We’re now stuck, and I’m hoping someone here may have experienced this to some degree or another, and might have an idea about a fix.
Here’s the main error that Fusion throws up: “could not open /dev/vmmon: Broken pipe”
Parallels simply says something like “unable to start Parallels services”
Have any of you experienced something like this with your virtualization software in Mojave or elsewhere?
Many thanks in advance,
