VMware Workstation Pro 17.0.1 Build 21139696

We’re excited about what we’ve been working on and would love to share with the community where we’re at with this year’s release.

With new features to support Windows 11, new graphics capabilities, and other useful features like auto-start VMs, we’re gearing up for a new major release of Workstation.


What’s New?

Windows 11 Support

VMware Workstation for Windows and Linux now support Windows 11 operating systems for x86_64 CPU types.

Virtual Trusted Platform Module

In order to support Windows 11 requirements, a Trusted Platform Module is required. With this release, we have enhanced our Virtual TPM module by incorporating ‘Fast Encryption’, key auto-gen and key storage via Keychain with a TPM 2.0 virtual device profile that is compatible with Windows 11 system requirements. Of course, vTPM device can be added to any VM, but that VM must have either Full or Fast VM encryption enabled.

Fast Encryption

With the new ‘fast encryption’ mode, only the most critical parts of the virtual machine’s local storage space are encrypted, dramatically improving overall VM performance but providing a secure enclave for sensitive data such as a TPM device. Fast Encryption can be enabled for all VM types from the VM Settings. > Encryption window, or during the New VM walkthrough.

Encryption Key Auto-Generate and Store

To enhance the new fast encryption model, Workstation can auto-generate a password for the user, and the local keychain is used by default to store the encryption key, relieving the user from having to type it in whenever their VM boots.

Graphics Enhancements

OpenGL 4.3

Workstation for Windows and Linux, when used with a Linux VM that has a kernel of 5.18 or newer and Mesa 22.1.1, should notice that OpenGL now reports its version at 4.3 and OpenGL ES at 3.10.

Autostart VMs

Workstation introduces a feature specifically for launching user-defined virtual machines when the PC boots.


World Class Desktop Hypervisor – run multiple virtual machines, containers or Kubernetes clusters on a single PC
Now supports Windows 11 PCs and Virtual Machines
Enhanced 3D graphics support for DirectX 11 and up to 8GB of vGPU Memory
Leverage VM Snapshots, Clones and virtual networking for maximum efficiency
Move and access your virtual machines easily across VMware infrastructure
Build, Push, Pull and Run OCI Container Images with the vctl CLI
Encrypt and build restricted or expiring Virtual Machines
Run Workstation virtual machines and containers alongside WSL2 and Hyper-V on Windows


Remark: Tweak for not creating vmem file and using real memory . Boot delay to 5 second.

Edited C:\ProgramData\VMware\VMware Workstation\Config.ini (This apply to all VM)

bios.bootDelay = “5000”
prefvmx.minVmMemPct = “100”
MemTrimRate = “0”
mainMem.useNamedFile = “FALSE”
sched.mem.pshare.enable = “FALSE”
prefvmx.useRecommendedLockedMemSize = “TRUE”

logging= “FALSE”


(Registered Silent Install Repack) x64

I installed it straight forward on my Windows 10, but when running, even as administrator, I get a message “You do not have permission to enter a license key. Try again using the system administrator account.” Thanks for your kind help.


    That happen when you are not administrator… right click install a administrator I bet


    It’s a glitch, happens when you’re admin as well. Open a command prompt window as administrator and run this: C:\Program Files (x86)\VMware\VMware Workstation\x64\vmware-vmx.exe –new-sn JA09H-4V15H-M80V8-8A8Z4-2U8N4
