VMware Fusion 12 - Xojo problem

Just a heads up for anyone working on Xojo using Windows in a VMware - testing some applications developed on Mac on my virtual Windows environment resulted in a very nasty BSOD. I then attempted to install the Xojo 2020R1.2 environment on the Windows VM only to find that it BSOD when I attempted to run it.

After a bit of head scratching I managed to track this down on the VMware community - not sure what is causing this but VMware have posted a workaround.


As it says:
“I fixed this by setting my machine hardware level to 17 under compatibility options.”

Same issue here, same solution.
Something funky with the most recent ‘hardware’ emulation

This should also be fixed in 2020r2.
